Could be interesting with DeChambeau in the lead, Phil and Koepka right behind and Tiger having a decent first round.  Right now I would put my money on Koepka, but it is way too early to tell, as so many things can happen at the Masters.  Weather may play  a role in this especially on Sunday with some t-storms possible.

Justin Rose.... On 18, he hooks his tee shot into a bush.  Whacks at the ball with a rescue club, and hits a fantastic shot to just shy of the greenside bunker.  Hits a beautiful chip, that misses going in for a three by a fraction of an inch, and runs by about 3 feet.  Misses the 3 footer, and thus, misses the cut by one.  (This ,  after bogeying 17) Argghhhh.

Halfway home and we have the makings of a classic. Not only there is a five way tie at the top a first in the Masters, all of them are major champions which is a first in any major (if not any tourney). Then one behind you have DJ, a guy even I have never heard of in Harding, Schauffle and some other guy who will energize this place like it has never been seen before. I was bouncing off the walls on Tiger's back nine yesterday, Sunday yells and it was only Friday. Add in a lurking Phil plus many others, this is going to be fun.

Hope they can play well using umbrellas.  Rain 50-60% chance next two days.  More severe than yesterday.  Miserable here on T. Simons and supposed to worse towards ATL

Looks like it might be ok today, but Sunday afternoon could be a real problem and prevent completion of the tournament on Sunday

Lowest scoring day in Masters history in round 3 including three 64s. They have changed the final round tee times due to the weather so for a Masters first, split tees in threesomes starting at 7:30 AM (leaders at 9:20). We have the same guys who played well in majors last year up top - Molanari, Woods, Finau and Koepka. While the Big Cat is on the prowl, Molanari just does not make mistakes. The "champion golfer of the year" already stared down Woods one on one at Carnoustie, so I fully expect him to play well today. Woods needs a magical round to win, and remember, he has never come from behind in the last round to win a major. However, he has come from behind on a Sunday to win a Masters. That was in 2005 when the majority of round 3 was played Sunday morning and he got the lead in that round en route to has last win here.
