Augusta – Back at the press center. Play underway. Thirty percent chance of thunderstorms.
Ian Woosnam has completed four holes. His scores: 4-4-4-4. I’m thinking about posting this pertinent information on foursquare, as soon as I figure out what foursquare is.
Theme of the day, as best I can discern: Can Rory McIlroy, tied for first after Round 1, break 80? (At the 2010 British Open, he opened, as it were, with a 63. He followed that with the aforementioned 80?)
Subplot: Can Phil Mickelson, the overwhelming favorite and the people’s choice, make his move, or does he wait until the weekend? By his standards, Mickelson had a fairly serene opening round — three birdies (two on par-5’s, which should count as only a half-birdie) and one bogey. I’m planning on watching Phil a bit, so I’ll keep you abreast of developments.
And with that I leave you.
