Can Tiger make a move?
After a lethargic first seven holes, Tiger seems to be starting to wake up just a bit. He nearly made an eagle on No. 8, settling for a birdie to get back to even par for the day. On No. 9 he just missed a birdie putt, so we’re all wondering if he has a big back nine in him. As poorly as Tiger has played, if he can shoot 3-4 under on the back nine, he will be right in the hunt. That’s a big if, but if anyone can do it, it’s Tiger.
Ian Poulter just missed his birdie putt on 18, but he’s at 5 under, tied with Phil Mickelson for third place. His 3-under 69 is his best career round at Augusta National. After showing up in pistachio colored pants on Thursday. Poulter is dressed in pink pants, pink and white golf shoes. While it wouldn’t be my choice of colors, I love Poulter’s flair and his willingness to shake things up a bit. Golf needs more players like Poulter. I just hope if he’s in the hunt on Sunday, he chooses a different color than pink to wear. Not sure it would really go with that green jacket you get for winning the tournament.
