4:47 PM: Looking back at the 2013 Masters on ESPN right now. The end was so great. Justin Rose said his son was running around screaming "Come on, Aussie!"
4:42: Curtis Strange on Rory McIlroy: "When he's bad, he's not so good."
4:41 PM: Webb Simpson's son isn't afraid to show off that burly chest:
4:38 PM: Caroline Wozniacki dyed her hair pink for the Masters. Does pink go with green or no?

3:42 PM: Steve Stricker says his over/under for how long his daughter carries his bag in the Par 3 Contest. I laughed. I'll take the under.

Masters patron, while stroking the grass: "This is real grass." #themasters— Ashley Mayo (@AshleyKMayo) April 9, 2014
3:31 PM: Jack Nickalus is 2 under through three holes. It would seriously be a top 10 storyline this week if he won this thing.
3:30 PM: Ryan Moore is your leader in the clubhouse. He finishes at 6 under, three clear of Bernhard Langer.
