The 2011 Masters is finally underway, which means on the East coast, it is the official start to spring! Questions are buzzing like will Tiger finally find his form? Will Phil go back-to-back? Will one of the Europeans break their long drought?
After day 1, Tiger hit some solid putts that he was not rewarded with and made some nice scrambles. A -1 opening round is better suited for the US Open than the Masters, but he is just one good round away from being a significant factor. Phil showed he can miss fairways and still score well. More often than not, he still finds a way to reach the green and when he doesn’t, his wedge and putter bail him out. Rory Mcllory leads the field but still has 54 holes to play, so he shouldn’t be sending in his jacket measurements just yet. But if he has another round in the 60’s today, he will be very tough to beat over the weekend.
