The Masters from Augusta National. Live Blog

6:09pm - Tiger is making a run. I'd love watching golf even if he wasn't part of the picture, but he manages to make the game even more exciting. I love watching him and want him to win every time. I want to witness history. I want him to set the bar so high that my grandkids will ask me about him 50 years from now. Let's see how close he can get to the top of the leaderboard.

Tomorrow is forecasting a little rain, so today's low scores might not roll over into tomorrow. We'll see. Also, if it does rain Friday afternoon/evening, then Saturday should make for some really interesting golf. A look over the scoreboard and none of the big names are necessarily out of the tourney. It's been a great first day, plenty of low scores and it looks like we are on our way to another great first Major of the year.

5:00pm - So Chad Campbell is on the verge of going VERY low. He's played well this season, making 7 of 8 cuts, but holy crap, he's threatening to post the lowest single day score in Majors history! Weather is nice, the course is playing relatively short, and the greens don't seem to be any faster than usual, so it's no surprise scores have been low; however, 9 under is surprisingly low. Remember, golf tournaments last four days for a reason, so don't get too caught up in your favorite golfer being out of contention. I'll be pulling for Greg Norman to ride the momentum of his -2 today; Tiger will always be in/on the hunt; and lots of past champions also went low. 

4:01pm - Espn coverage has started. I need to take a deep breath.
