    There's a story that goes around in Rules of Golf circles about Augusta and how someone (can't remember who) had a five footer with a downslope behind the hole. He missed it long and it rolled off the green. He declared his ball unplayable, took his stroke penalty, placed it back at the spot and made the putt the second time. Way easier than trying to get up and down from way below the green.

    Yeah, instead of the egg salad and pimento cheese they could just send extra BBQ to me. I guess it's the spirit of the thing.

    Cut rule changed -- now just low 50 and ties, 10-shot rule not in play.

    That's smart because of lack of daylight. Is it just this year?

    This is a great follow up to last Tuesday's events; it'll be weird without any crowds and roars but like someone said, they used to play 12 with no fans so it will now just be 18 holes of that. I'm thinking that Xander finally breaks through.
