    Obviously given the time of year you won't be seeing any typical golf rounds ending at 7:00 PM. And I suspect all the pretty flowers and such won't be quite as lovely. That said see below the TV schedule:

    Thursday 1:00-5:30 ESPN

    Friday 1:00-5:30 ESPN

    Saturday 1:00-5:00 CBS

    Sunday 10:00-3:00 CBS

    Please note that the Sunday CBS NFL game will be broadcast at 4:00.

    It's going to be strange, but still excited as ever. Field is stacked.

    I hope the weather people are wrong but I believe the rain will play havoc with the tournament.

    Going in to day three there are four tied for the lead. Germany's ageless wonder, Bernhard Langer becomes the oldest player to make The Masters cut. At age 63 Langer at -3. T-27.
    A. Ancer -9
    C. Smith -9
    J. Thomas -9
    D. Johnson -9
    P. Cantlay -8
    J. Rahm -8
    Mickelson in the mix at -5
    Langer -3
    McIlroy -3
    A. Scott -2
    Spieth E. Former champion and three time Major winner has to finish the last eight holes of the second round, and is in danger of missing the cut line currently at Even par.

    "Even par."
    -----------------------------
    Even par in this field isn't going to cut it. Good riddance again to the black guy.

    Kelvin Na did something on Thursdays round that had not been done since 2009. He hit every green in regulation and was on two par fives in two shots. Unfortunately, he still shot 1 over par 73.

    Dustin Johnson broke away from the tightly bunched pack, shooting a third round 65 and opening up a four shot lead at -16 over Abraham Ancer, who has dual U.S.-Mexican citizenship, Cameron Smith of Australia, and S. J. Im of Korea. Justin Thomas and South African Dylan Frittelli are at -11. Johnson's three round score of 200 ties Jordan Spieth's 2015 record.

    Tomorrow will be a big day for Johnson's legacy. Blow the lead and it'll be yet another major in which he was leading or right near the lead but couldn't finish the job. He's won a bunch of tournaments and is a cinch hall of famer but still has just the 2016 U.S. Open win, reminiscent of Greg Norman's star-crossed career as a great player who came up just short in so many majors.

    BTW, here's the coolest hole in one ever, hit by Jon Rahm on the 16th hole during a practice round this week:

    Not a golf fan but always enjoyed the Masters because it's always been one of the annual rites of spring. Feels weird for it to be forced here in November.

    Yes, yes, but you didn't mention Tiger. What a disgrace.

    Dustin Johnson destroys the field and wins his first Masters with a record score of 20 under par.

    Very happy to see Dustin win his first green jacket. He’s been arguably the best player for the last 5-6 years so it’s fitting that he’s a Master’s Champion as well!

    Just for Tom Iron, In round 4 Baldrick hung up a 10 on hole number 12 and cost himself a whole lotta bread. Of course that probably cost a Las Vegas escort service a few hundred K in client fees too.

    I will say this after that Tin Cup moment he did shoot 4 birdies in a row and got himself in the black for his scorecard.

    PS, Dustin Johnson could have turned a corner for his career and might start winning majors by the handful as he had been bitten by a cases of the yips over the years at the Masters.

    Dustin came through in style with a statement performance. It's a huge step forward for his legacy as he needed at least one more major or his career would have been seen as a big disappointment in that department. He has a chance now to have a great career like Phil Mickelson, who has five majors and is 9th all-time with 44 PGA Tour wins. Johnson is now tied with Gary Player for 26th all-time with 24 Tour wins. The next highest active player after that is Rory McIlroy with 18.
