…you get to see how much waiting and standing around goes on during a match. Yesterday, I got to see Zach Johnson accidentally hit the ball when he was warming up. He barely caught it and it shot to the side into the wood log tee marker and back to the other side of the tee box. His playing partner and the two caddies were shaking trying not to laugh. I am telling my wife how I have never seen that done by any pro and the announcers are saying the same thing. They quickly confirmed there was no penalty since he was not trying to hit the ball. On the main telecast, that would not have been shown live. The initial Feature Group is McElroy and Leishman. They will switch to Phil and Kuchar later and then end up featuring Tiger and Poulter. Interesting way to watch the Masters while waiting for the leaders to tee off.
They have a huge board to the side with the top thirty or so players shown. Tony Finau just birdied the first two holes to go to minus 5.
