AUGUSTA---The Par 3 Tournament was the fun part of the day, but a lot of the players also got their work in. That includes Tiger Woods, who scooted out early again for his last practice, playing alongside Bubba Watson and Robert Karrlson.
Later in the day, Sergio Garcia was there trying to figure out the best way around this cathedral of a golf course. While you can get a lot out of the practice, it seems like there's always a new wrinkle. That, and the course changes from day to day.
"It affects everything from the cut backwards," said two-time Masters champ Ben Crenshaw. "To your putts, to your chips, to your bunker shots. And a good placement on an iron shot is a reward."
Get ready for lightning quick greens and a course that'll firm up if it stays relatively dry.
