Day finished T2 in 2011 Masters

Jason Day loves Augusta National, and if you didn’t pick him in your pool or your Fantasy Golf team, then well, you should have listened to me! I kid, I kid.

In difficult conditions with swirling winds and tucked pins, Day, who is trying to become the first Australian to win The Masters, fired an impressive four-under 68, six-under total, to take a one-shot lead over fellow Australian Marc Leishman and 53-year-old Fred Couples. Day’s only other start was in 2011 when he finished T2.

What a performance by the kid, who received an invitation to play at Augusta after winning the Asian Amateur, shooting a one-over 73 in his major debut.

The first- and second-round pairings are out for the Masters! I’ll cut to the chase —  Tiger Woods is grouped with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy at 10:45am on Thursday.

Maybe it’s just me, but the Green Coats seemed to have more fun with the pairings just a few years ago. Wait, no, they don’t have a sense of humor. I’m thinking of the U.S. Open. Duh. (Obviously, I’m typing train of thought.) Anyway, here are the groups that stood out to me (all times EST) — and there are quite a few:
