Masters Review after Day One...

You know what they say...You can't win the Masters after one day.  But you sure can lose it.  Some people lost it today, others kept themselves right in the thick of it.

Notables that are cashed and you can probably stick a fork in them...

Tom Watson
Martin Kaymer (number one in the world)
Padraig Harrington
Mike Weir
Vijay Singh

Rory and Quiros lead after day one.  Almost all of the leaders are big hitters, which is pretty much the way the Masters works.  But as they always say, most of the time the Masters comes down to a putting contest.  With the hole placements in relatively easy positions, most guys that can find the fairway can get themselves in birdie position, it just depends on who knocks them down or not. 

30 out of 99 guys are under par.  Leaders at -7.  I would imagine the lead will be either -10 or -11 going into the weekend.  Conditions are perfect right now so there are low scores available.  Just hope some of the guys I put money on will at least make it interesting for me this weekend.

And just so you know, Mickelson is at 2 under with a bogey on the 18th and Tiger finished at -1.  Both are definitely still in it and have a big day ahead of them tomorrow.
