Surprise, surprise! Justin Rose got rid of the fog. He was lost for a few months on Thursday and performed well on the demon Augusta National Stadium.
So much so that we might think that he is heading in a different direction. To prove this, he opened the game by four strokes.
His eagle and his seven little birds quickly repaired his two bugs. He started with a mistake and then added another on the seventh hole. A kick behind him plunged him into a burning state. From the eighth pennant to the eighteenth pennant, he cut no less than nine ordinary punches.
Ross provides a real clinic by playing darts with pennants. Hear from him, at least since the eighth grade, his game has been so easy.
“I did well on the green. I managed to understand and read the lines well. If I was told that I would end the game with 65 points while climbing the eighth hill, I would answer that I had no chance.
He continued: “Until then the world is not over.” But I knew I was going in the wrong direction. Even if you are 65, you will not win the game on Thursday. In fact, you may lose the game. I did not panic. “
The winner of a professional championship (the 2013 US Open) said: “The purpose of this course is to play tricks.” This is an incredible round of competition. A good reminder, you never know what will happen here. “
Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama are behind -3, but the big work is quite hard.
The chairman of the Augusta national team pointed out in bold letters on the eve of the tournament that the route showed a special situation. Therefore, this will bring great challenges to golfers. He did not lie.
The firmness and speed of the surface made the participants drool in the first round. By adding wind to dry the surface in the afternoon, the stadium looks like a demonic appearance.
Defending champion Dustin Johnson testified: “It’s much more difficult than in November, especially when the weather is so fast and the wind is raging,” he is the author of the 74 (+2) card.
The 2018 edition champion Patrick Reed put forward a different view on the strategy adopted in this situation, especially in certain pennant attacks. He adjusted his method to a par 5 hole, such as par 15, protected by a pond on the front.
