    Duke, are you going to watch the Masters this weekend as your favourite, Fred Couples, is in the lead? I plan to watch it as much as possible. I like to see Tom Watson do well, too.

    Poulter, Westwood in Masters lead; Woods 2 back - Yahoo! News

    AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods still has his game. Now he finds out if his name high on the leaderboard means what it once did.
    In a Masters that gets more compelling by the day, two faces of England's golf revival — Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter — handled a tougher Augusta National on Friday to share the lead as both chase their first major championship.

    I would love to see Phil Mickelson win! Hope to see Fred Couples do better today.

    I never realized watching Golf could be SO exciting! I can hardly wait until tomorrow! There will be an earlier Tribute to Tom Watson as well!

    I think Dave is a fan of Phil Mickelson but I've personally never liked him all that much, don't know why? I didn't catch the results but I'm pretty sure my friend Freddie completely fell out of competition.

    Wow, great job Freddie!

    I wonder if his back is actually better these days?

    Masters 2010: Fred Couples smiles through the pain in Augusta - Telegraph


    Sometimes it is a marvel that Couples can seem so comfortable in the day job. His back trouble has deteriorated to the extent that he need up to two hours of physiotherapy a day; that is, when he is not wearing tennis shoes retiring to bed at 7pm to forget about the pain. The complaint arises from the fluidity in his swing extension, but he has to maintain this freedom of movement to challenge over all of Augusta's 7,400 yards.
    I didn't know one estranged wife committed suicide
    and the other wife died of breast cancer. He, of all people, can feel more compassion for what Phil is going through.

    Fred Couples is IMHO, one of the greatest golfers that ever lived. He's a great golfer with one of the most beautiful and most natural swings you'll ever see and a very humble guy. I can literally sit and watch this guy play golf all day long.

    Unable to watch it yesterday, I'm going to watch it now; I'm SO glad I recorded it! I KNOW I'm going to shed tears when I see Phil going up to hug his wife.

    I just finished watching it and yes, I'm deeply emotional! Phil and Freddy seemed to be the Crowd favourites, and there was a lot of applause for Tiger, too.
