And they're off
The first round of the Masters is underway. Bernhard Langer leads the tournament, he's 3 under through 7. Tom Watson leads a group at 2 under. Langer still has the game to hang in there for a while. While Watson should have won last year's British Open, I don't think he's got the length needed to hang in at Augusta. My hope is that he proves me wrong. Still more than three hours from Tiger's first tee shot. But Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els will hit the course soon. There's no rooting in the press box but I'm pulling for Els, he's a good guy who badly wants a green jacket.

Back in business
It's been a while since I blogged but being here at Augusta for the 2010 Masters gives me a chance to do so. With the Par 3 contest nearly in the books, it's time to focus on the tournament itself.
While Tiger's firs round in five months will steal much of the the first day thunder, there is plenty of other stuff to get excited about.
Seeing Jack and Arnie kick things off will be a thrill, even if it means getting up really early to do so.
I'm curious to see how guys like Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Steve Stricker and Kenny Perry play. My pick to win is Els, and I'll admit I'm pulling for him because everyone knows how much winning the Masters would mean to him.
Check back throughout the next four days and I'll try to pass along the excitement.
