    The Masters - 2016

    What is wrong with us?!? No Masters thread at almost 1pm on Friday is inexcusable!

    I've got Sergia at 40-1 and Rose at 18-1, so I like my position so far. However, I'm obviously afraid the Spieth is going to run off and hide this afternoon, never to be seen again by his challengers.

    I was too busy walking around Augusta National on Wednesday to start a thread.

    I could use some of my guys to wake up and charge towards the front of the field. I'm losing my work pool.

    How about the amateur 6 solid holes away from going into the weekend right in the hunt. That would be a fun story for sure. And kudos to Spieth for being generous to the rest of the field so far today.

    Don't look now but 58 year old Bernhard Langer is one shot off the lead.

    My dad is a retired club pro. About ten years ago he went to the tournament as a spectator and couldn't find a good parking spot, so he parked in the PGA bigwig lot. A security guy asked him if he was allowed to park there and my dad told him that he was a retired pro and they let him stay there.

    He just didn't mention he wasn't a touring pro.

    Details.

    Jordan goes full A A Ron Balackay with the driver on 17 and 18 and ends his round bogey, double. He maintains a one-shot lead over the sure-to-be answer to a future trivia question, Smylie Kaufman.

    I hope the wind dies down for tomorrow because Augusta playing like the U.S. Open sucks the fun out of the tournament.

    I think Spieth fades. His game wasn't in top shape coming in to the tournament. He played a great round Thursday but has just been holding it together since. I was less surprised by his tee shots on 17 and 18 than I was his pitch shots. Those were 2 of the worst you'll ever see him hit. They were clearly the result of him losing a bit of confidence down the stretch.

    My money is on Jason Day. Scoring conditions should be favorable today and he's playing so well that I could see him shooting 65 or 66.

    You'd have to think that DJ has a run in him as well, and that playing with Jason Day, the two will feed off each other. DJ has had a quiet first three rounds, but he starts the day only three back.

    Only two players are in red figures at present moment. The birdies have to show up sometime, don't they?

    It's nice to see a crowd where everyone doesn't have their phone out taking pictures.

    Be in the moment.

    Cell phone use is prohibited by patrons on the course (typically the concessions areas are okay). I've heard that the Masters will blacklist patrons for breaking rules. And as impossibly difficult as it is to get tickets, nobody is about to test their patience.

    When I was at the Ryder Cup in 2008, there were signs at the entrances that essentially said, "turn it off, put it away, and don't think about using it."

    Also, four consecutive birdies by Jordan later, and the leaderboard is suddenly much less interesting. He's pretty damn good when he finds his game.
