Phil the Thrill!
Hello, friends! Welcome to the first-ever live blog here at WUP. Very exciting, I know. (By the way, I hope this works.) It’s cool stuff — I can throw in poll questions, and you can add your comments and ask questions.
Well, it’s a bit of a bloodbath so far at Augusta National, and perhaps players have the man pictured above to thank: Phil Mickelson, who complained after Thursday’s first round that the Green Coats set up the course too easy. It was indeed quite benign.
Different story on Friday. The pin placements in the second round are extra hard. And as you can see from the leaderboard today, there are hardly any red numbers. However, the round of the day so far belongs to Nick Watney, who is three-under through 11 and battling back after his six-over 78 in the opening round.
Alright, without further ado, let’s go to the live blog: Click Here to Join!
