Augusta Diary: Magic man all out of tricks
Thursday 11 April 2013
Nicknamed "Magic Man", Wednesday's Par 3 challenge winner Ted Potter Jnr must have known even his best spell wouldn't be enough as he attempted to become the first player to win the traditional curtain-raiser and main event in the same year. "I don't care about the curse," he insisted. "Just winning something here makes my week already."
Good job that. After walking off the third at one under, he ended on four over thanks to a disastrous triple-bogey on the 18. There's always next year.
Tiger's totty left in shade by Paulina
Lindsey Vonn was the talk of the town as she followed the progress of her beau Tiger Woods, but her sober grey onesie had nothing on Paulina Gretzky. The daughter of ice hockey legend Wayne and squeeze of Dustin Johnson caught the attention as she bared her shoulders in the fierce Georgia sun.
Westwood weighs in with his two cents
Feeling light on his toes, Lee Westwood recovered from his awful start to finish two under. Just as well after his comments regarding Colin Montgomerie. "There's a big difference between me at 39 and Colin at 39 – about eight stone I'd guess," he joked.
Nine is fine for Dunbar
Spare a thought for young Alan Dunbar. The 22-year-old from Ballymoney in Northern Ireland didn't record the first par of his debut appearance at Augusta until the ninth hole and then promptly made his second at the 10th. The trouble was by then he was already 10 over par after a triple-bogey on the second.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
