I did not make this headline up
It's Sunday at the Masters. This is as good as it gets! The leaders don't tee off until 2:40 PM, but the "contenders" start going off at around 1:40 or so.
America's Brandt Snedeker and Argentina's Angel Cabrera lead the tournament at -7. Adam Scott is one back at -6, followed by Marc Leishman and Jason Day at -5. Matt Kuchar is at -4, and at -3 sit Tiger Woods and Tim Clark. Other notable players are: Rickie Fowler -2, Steve Stricker -2, Jim Fyurk -2, Fred Couples +1, Bubba Watson +2, Jason Dufner +2, Dustin Johnson +2, Rory McIlroy +4, Phil Mikelson +9, and 14 year old Tianlang Guan at +12.
There have been some incredible storylines so far this year, and it seems like this final round has packed everything you could possibly want into one. You have the past champion (Angel Cabrera), the redemption story (Brandt Snedeker), and of course Tiger Woods. Though he was assessed a controversial two stroke penatly after Friday's round, he sits only 4 shots back going into today's round.
As for the weather, today is colder, and the course will be playing a bit softer than usual, which could cause for some early good scores, like Bill Haas, -2 through 3 holes. There looks like there is rain headed Augusta's way, but you never know with weather.
Hope everyone enjoys this final round, and if you can't make it to a tv, there is some great stuff HERE on the Masters website
Quick Lion Kim update from the last of the practice days at The Masters...
Par 3 competition is the highlight today. Lion finished T-30 right now with E after 9 holes of competition. Haven't seen any highlights of his outfit for today. Stat: No Par 3 contest winner has ever won the Masters. So Lion's got that going for him, which is nice. Wish he'd be sporting a Hagelin hockey jersey for the Par 3 but whatever. Stodgy Augusta.
And BTW- does anyone else think Ryo Ishikawa looks like a drunk anime artist picked out his clothes? Jeebus the light blue / pink / gray combo is not happening for me.
