AUGUSTA---Oliver Wilson and Larry Mize are our local boys for the week. This is the first time in four years we're missing two others. Vaughn Taylor and Charles Howell III are, of course, not in the field.
That fact isn't lost on veteran Mize. He's very aware of what playing this Tournament in your hometown means and wishes they could be here.
"I hate that," Mize said. "I mean, those are two great guys and great players. I'm sure they'll be back next year, and it'll be nice to see them next year. We'll try and hold the flag up this year and play well."
Here's hoping both Howell and Taylor make it next year. You know they want it bad.
