5 at 10: Live from the Masters (Day 1)

Here we are gang. Cue the Brent Musberger voice, “You ARE looking live, No. 1 tee box, Augusta, Georgia at the shrine of golf. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.”

Fore please, the 5-at-10 is on the tee. Here we go...

Masters thoughts

The green jacket can’t be won today — there have been less than five players go wire-to-wire and win — but it certainly can be lost today.

Most of the big numbers today will come from predictable sources — Fuzzy Zoeller is not going to be on the leaderboard tonight.

That said, there will be at least one greybeard make an inspired charge (Fred Couple is always a safe pick here) and one hotshot that posts something like 79 (this is Rickie Bieber/Fowler’s first Masters).

Two of the game’s most influential players — Jack and Arnie — served as the honorary starters this morning, and each piped one down the middle to the delight of the crowd.

Garcia has been indefinitely suspended from the football program. Athletic director Eric Hyman announced the suspension Wednesday, but did not give a reason. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)

Wonder how the rest of the SoCon will prepare for Stephen Garcia?

OK, maybe that’s a stretch, but it’s even money right now whether Stephen Garcia will be back at South Carolina.

Garcia has started for most of his previous three seasons in Columbia and he’s been in and out of the doghouse during that entire stretch, as well.

Now he’s been suspended — his fifth, yes, FIFTH suspension — for the rest of spring practice and it could carry over into the fall.

“If he’s back, he’s back,” USC coach Steve Spurrier told the AP (No word whether he used his Ivan Drago voice from Rocky III when Drago said of Apollo Creed, “If he dies, he dies.”

If Garcia’s done at South Carolina, that means Connor Shaw becomes the a trending topic in Columbia and across the SEC. This Gamecocks offense has a lot of pieces — running back Marcus Lattimore and receiver Alshon Jeffery are among the nation’s best — but bad quarterback play is hard to overcome.

So is bad bad quarterback behavior.

Playoffs take shape; draft picks pondering

The NBA playoff positions are starting to take shape. We’ll cover this more in the days ahead.

Some of the big college hoops names are declaring for the NBA draft, too.

Wednesday, Duke’s Kyrie Irving declared for the draft. Irving battled injuries as a freshman in Durham, played all of nine games for the Blue Devils and will likely be the No. 1 overall pick.

Irving is a special player and has the speed and skills to be a big-time NBA point guard. However, this as much as anything is the ultimate testament that something is wrong with the one-and-done draft system in college hoops.

So be it.

Also listed in the top five of draft prospects is Enos Kanter, the foreign big man who was ruled ineligible at Kentucky. Does that make Kanter a none-and-done?

This and that

— Check out TFP’s UT ace Patrick Brown’s story on Tyler Bray, the Vols quarterback. Simply put, if he improves so does the mood of every Johnny Vols Fan.

— The powers that be in golf have changed their rules. The USGA and the R & A have altered rule No. 33-7/4.5. What does it mean, well, here’s the breakdown. If a player violates a rule that he had no way of knowing he violated (like Paddy Harrington did on a recent European Tour event when his ball moved the distance of a dimple) and ultimately signs an incorrect scorecard, that player will not be DQed. The penalty will be assessed, but the player will be allowed to continue. That said, Judge Smails, winter rules or improving your lie after “being interfered with” still are not covered.

— Braves stumbled 5-4 Wednesday. Wow, how about that missed call at the plate? Think Bobby Cox would have got tossed on that one? C’mon Fredi, mix it up a little bit.

— Sweet Jerry Remy, the Red Sox have fallen to 0-5. Nothing else to add here, just throwing that out there.

— In the SteelerFan, overstated, quick-reaction of fans, well in the first group off today at Augusta, Ross Fisher made bogey on No. 1. At this pace he’ll miss the cut at shoot 36-over. Not good at all.

My favorite club remains the foot wedge ... and the sandwich. Any prop bets on first eagle? Because Retief Goosen may have won someone some large dough. Not like he's ever done anything, like win the U.S. Open a time or two. And for the love of Billy Casper, I've got four Masters hats in various states of disrepair in the champagne room now. What am I gonna do with another one? As for Ol' Ball Coach ... well ... he did use to hold Tampa Bay Bandits team meetings at a bar. Five suspensions? What, is this six strikes and you may be kinda sorta out rule, Wally?

Oh how things can turn. After opening with a bogey, Ross Fisher was on pace for a +36 and miss the cut. Birdies on Nos. 2, 5,6,7 and 9 (with a bogey on 4) allowed Fisher to make the turn at 3-under 33. At this pace he's shoot 24 under and win this thing in a walk. (Kidding, kidding.) Goosen is so smooth, he deserves the crystal goblets (those are kinda like cups, scole023) that go with making an eagle here. In fact, Fisher's 24 under would be lapped by Goosen, who is 4 under after four holes and — at this pace — would set a few records on his way to a 72-under. He might even get his name in the paper with that. (We'll try to cut back on the "at this pace" references, but we're not making any promises.)

Tiger tees it up in about five minutes. Should be interesting.

The 5-at-10 loves the "6-strikes-and-you're-out-twice rule." If Garcia messes up again, Spurrier may get so mad, he'll score 80 on The Citadel. So it goes.

BIspy4 — if you win, maybe you can keep this hat clean. It could be your church hat.

So far Stephen Garcia has proven 2 things...he can throw the ball so far away from Alshon...and Alshon can still catch it...2nd he would make a good drinking buddy...

-Kyrie Irving on his college career- " My fondest memories of Duke are when Coach K came to my house to recruit me, once I signed the letter of intent [of 9 games and 15 practices(practice...we're talking about practice...not a game) and 3 film sessions] I declared for the NBA draft...when I got drafted #1 overall...I accepted my nomination into the Hall of Fame...I'm looking forward to playing with the best in Cleveland...Baron Davis..thank you...

I'm looking forward to seeing how everything shapes up with the Masters. I know that there will be nothing but golf on our tv this weekend. Given what an avid golf fan my significant other is, I am very surprised that he did not stage a protest regarding the date and time of a wedding we have to attend on Saturday.

Regarding the Garcia suspension, can you really expect anything respectable coming from a team that calls themselves the Cocks? Just saying...

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE II If Goosen's eagle from the fairway was shocker No. 1, shocker No. 2 is Ian Poulter's attire. It's relatively normal: white pants, green sweatshirt, white visor, green and white shoes (Carl Spangler says "He wore green so he could hide."). Lots of birdies this morning — conditions are perfect (duh, it's the Masters) and the weather (light wind, blue skies, temps in the 70s) could not be better.

EC — Amen on Garcia reaching all-time drinking buddy status. You wanna know who's not a good drinking buddy? Jayson Williams. Let's just move on. As for Kyrie's timeline, you're spot on — you just left out the part of Irving leaving Cleveland in five years, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert losing it and changing the price to something like $6.66 for Irving's Fathead and then Irving going to New Jersey, which has added Blake Griffin and a super-Russian to be named later and they embrace the nickname "Kyrie and The Nets."

You couldnt have summed it up any better...Thank You Kyrie Irving for gracing us with your presence...Not that it matters...you would have been playing Left-Out when Doc's son (Austin Rivers) got to town anyways.... Who schedules a wedding on Master's Saturday? Thats almost like planning an event that didnt include the Iron Bowl...or a wedding in TN on the 3rd saturday in October...sheesh!

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE III — Goosen made birdie on the par-5 8th and is at 5 under. At this pace... oh nevermind. Dude is golfing his ball right now. The 5-at-10 was standing at the first tee when Angel Cabrera teed off — Sweet Danny Noonan's 3 wood, Cabrera killed his first tee sho, cresting the hill and bouncing out of sight. We have reached a point in golf that today's pros turn a 450-yard par 4 at a major championship into a driver-sand/gap wedge. Wow.

Other big names in red numbers at the moment are: Rory McIlroy, who made the turn at 4 under, Matt Kuchar (2 under through six) and the hotshot formerly known as Sergio Garcia (who is 2 under through 4). Jeff Overton just curled in a long bomb for an eagle on No. 15 (hand him some crystal goblets — those are like cups, scole023).

BIspy — you take Kuchar and Snedeker off the board and this is could be the BMW Pro-Am sponsored by the Von Trapp family at the Greater Humbledorf Country Club and Casino. Sweet lord, somebody wake up the Queen.

Point of etiquette — Anyone who schedules a wedding without consulting the sporting calendar is subject to random no-shows. KBurg, if you or you significant other are related to the bride or groom, well sorry, you gotta go. If not, well, there could be a 24- or 48-hour bug circulating in your neck of the woods. Heck, if need be we'll get Dr. B to write you a sick note — he's a doctor after all.

As far as the Master's Hat goes, I would wear it with pride...most likely pair it with my Horace Grant Game Worn Glasses...the ladies love them...just dont let Mrs.EC read this...

jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE IV — Early morning starters Ross Fisher (3 under), Sean O'Hair (2 under) and Camilo Villegas (2 under) have completed their first rounds in red numbers. O'Hair was in particularly good spirits after signing his card, smiling and joking about his kids and yesterday's par-3 contest. "It's like a fairy tale out here," O'Hair said after closing quickly with birdies on 12, 13, 15 and 18 to get to 2 under. Amen, Sean, amen.

O'Hair expects the leader after today's round to be around 65, and Retief Goosen and Rory McIlroy are each 5 under with through 10 and 12 holes, repsectively.

Be quiet, but there's a possible Tiger sighting. Eldrick Woods is 1 under through eight holes, and more importantly, it's a rock-solid start (7 pars and a birdie on No. 6).

EC — Dude, sorry to be the one to inform you, but Horace Grant saw your post and denied that those goggles were his. He said the goggles are likely Harvey's — said Harvey does that all the time. Kinda like the Jose/Ozzie flip-flop from last month. Still, those goggles are better than the Dennis Scott good-luck socks BIspy4 wears.

Sidenote: Going back on the course now, but will be on 1310 AM in Chattanooga on "The Show" with Chris Goforth at 2ish today.

If they worked for Doughboy, why not? Favorite Dennis Scott story — warming up at Cameron Indoor and some snide little Dookie (yes, I know, that does not narrow the field down much) bellows out to 3D that he’ll give him a Twinkie if he makes a halfcourt shot. Scot walks to midcourt and fires up a jumper. Swish. Then he walks over to the student section, hand outstretched, ready for his Twinkie. And sure and begorrah, young Mr. McIlroy is putting on quite the show.

Bispy4- that is best story Ive heard about the future Laker Coach, those Snide Little Dookie's are quite the characters...Now Im thinking I want a twinkie..will I have to hit a half court J ???

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE V — Holy Ryan's all-you-can Haggis, Rory McIlroy is on it. Another birdie at No. 15 to get to 7 under, three clear of Goosen and Schwartzel (wasn't he one of Hanz's henchmen that John McLain handled in "Die Hard"?). Two of the hot names — Westwood and Kaymer — are playing together with mixed results. Westwood is 1 over after a bogey at 12; Kaymer is 4 over. Eldrick just made bogey on 10 to drop back to even par. Side note: Green appears to be the color du juor (Color of the day — "That sounds good, I think I'll have that.").

BIspy4 — When he got hot, there was nothing anyone could do with 3D. Dude could flat shoot it, and his late-heroics against UNC in the Thrilla-Dome — awesome in its awesomeness. That said, dude could never say no to a yeast roll, and, well, none of the 3Ds were for defense.

EC — "I'm in a glass case of emotion... Mean man punted Baxter." And walking the grounds today, milk was definitely a poor choice.

OGuy — Welcome to the show. Great catch.

It was less a reference to Brent ever being here and more for the feel of how Brent always had the flair for super-hype, over-drama. It could have been a mid-September Lions-Cardinals game, and dude acted like it was Super Bowl XII.

That said, you're right that B.M. has not been the lead announcer here. He's also never been in my kitchen.

haha what exactly is Bieber/Fowler wearing??

April 7, 2011 at 2:28 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE VI — McIlroy is in with a bogey-free 65 (32-33, or exactly what O'Hair said would be the lead). Fowler is decked out in all green and not a sherbert green either — a hearty grass green. Young Rickie made birdie on Nos. 14, 15, 16 and 18 to get to 2-under 70. Goosen has fallen off; he went out in 31 and has become allergic to par after the turn (he has two birdies, four bogeys through eight holes on the back). He's playing 18 now at 3 under. Kuchar just made birdie on 15 to get to 5 under. Make birdies now boys.

Also of note: Y.E. Yang (Yang, it's a parking lot, enough with the pictures) went out in 32 and is 4 under heading to No. 10. Former champ Craig Stadler, who has obviously swallowed a lot agrression along with a lot of pizza, just found the water on the par-3 12th. He was 5 over before that ill-timed swing. Buh-bye.

EC — Nice duo calling the daily EC grind. The 5-at-10 loves this idea — Give me Vin Scully, and just let the other chair sit empty. We'll let Jay Bilas analyze the choices, including breaking down the length and upside of the pimento cheese sandwich we had for lunch. Dick Vitale and/or Chris Berman are the first two off the 5-at-10's list. Dickie V: "Look at the 5-at-10 change his daughter's diaper. It's a dandy diaper, baby." Berman: "The 5-at-10 is also know as Jay Greeson-Formula (laugh track)." Shut-up, both of you.

Dude, remind us later this summer to pick this topic back up when we're looking for things to dicuss other than the Braves and "DH: friend or foe."

Henrik Stenson took an 8 on No. 4? How’s that done on a hole that is sans good quality H20?

April 7, 2011 at 4:10 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE VII Tiger Woods opened with a 1-under 71, making par of his final four holes Thursday to stay in red numbers. It looks like there will be a crowd under par, including Y.E. Yang, who hit his second shot on the 510-yard par-5 13th to 3 feet for eagle. Yang is at 5 under heading to the 14th tee. So it goes. Among the bigger names not in red numbers are Lee Westwood, who posted an even par, and Martin Kaymer, who entered the tournament as the world's top-ranked player. Kaymer posted a 78, that included a 40 on the back 9. Ouch. "I don't know what I have to do here," said Kaymer, who has never made a Masters cut, "maybe one day it will work out."

EC — Of course he played the video game as himself. Dude has a flat-nasty 'do on the game.

BIspy4 — No clue about an 8 for a pro. For me and you, that's easy, but was he a pro? At this point, we don't know.

And whatever the 5-at-10 record is for references to different movies, it's ceretainly in danger today. Well-played with a Ricky Bobby and a Waterboy in the last two posts. Well-played, indeed.

April 7, 2011 at 4:11 p.m.

Well Coach Klein, thats what happens when you're all jacked up on Mountain Dew...I believe I could score a 40 on the back 9 and that would be a good day!!! I used to create myself on NCAA football for PS2...I was the star Running Back for UT...good days good days

What was the deal with Trickie Rickie Bieber Fowler and the backwards hat? Heard he caught some heat on that one. Sure seems like the human highlighter doesn't yet understand the tradition of such a traditionally rich venue. We shall see how he colors the rest of the weekend. And as far as surprises are concerned, I have to agree that Ian Poulter stepping onto any golf course without being almost as absurdly noticeable as young Bieber/Fowler is a shocking update. I'm really not sure he can compete in digs that aren't on par with Elton John, especially since an announcer a few years back commented on him showing up to a tourney with nothing less than an Elton style ensemble of varying suitcases. Apparently it took several assistants just to get Poulter's clothes to his room. On another note, at 7 under for the day, as impressive as that is, I don't know if Rory can hold on with so many nipping at his heels. We shall see. Also, I'd like to agree with KB that a wedding is poorly timed and worth bowing out of when it's scheduled during a major! Insanity!

April 7, 2011 at 4:28 p.m.
jgreeson said...

MASTERS ROUND I, UPDATE VIII McIlroy's 7 under still leads; Y.E. Yang is also at 7 under after a birdie on No. 16 (Yang is golfing his ball, folks); Kuchar is in with a 4-under 68 and there are a slew of folks at 3 under.

EC — If creating yourself on NCAA football on the PS2/X-Box is wrong, then the 5-at-10 doesn't wanna be right. I don't know what Coach Klein would say (AAAAAyyyyyyyyyy — Sit on it, Potsie), but you can't go wrong with the advice from the Coach Finstock in Teen Wolf — "There are three rules that I live by: never get less than 12 hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese."

WC-triple7s — Dude, you have the 5-at-10's permission to (cough, cough) say you're feeling (a-choo, a-choo) a little bit under the weather. As for Ronnie, Bobby, RIckie, Mike (That's a New Edition shout-out for you youngsters out there) Fowler, you ask and you shall receive. Fowler told us that he was in official "Masters Green" today, or as close as Puma could get. He said he'll wear blue Friday, a lighter shade of green Saturday and his traditional orange on Sunday. And yes, he will keep his hat forward for the rest of the weekend.

kburgess1013 said...

Ok, maybe I'm revealing my age as a youngster, but I don't necessarily understand the drama over Trickie Rickie Beiber Fowler's hat. Sure its tradition, blah blah blah, but to me his backwards hat isn't nearly as offensive as Rory Back-Stabbatini's mouth or hat collection in general (name is reference to his comments from years past regarding his ability to beat Tiger and his run off in the middle of the night losing skills). Some of the things that the older generations get teed off about (no pun intended) baffles me.
