Haas grabs Masters Lead
with 68, Scott 1 shot back

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Bill Haas shot a 4-under 68 to lead the Masters on Thursday, the first time he´s headed a major at the end of a round. The son of longtime PGA Tour player Jay Haas broke 70 for the first time in five Augusta National appearances. The 31-year-old American started the tournament with a bogey, but bounced back to knock in six birdies on a warm, sunny day when only three other players got into the 60s. The last two Masters winners, defending champion Adam Scott of Australia and 2012 winner Bubba Watson of the U.S., were both

Comments:
The greatest tournament in golf is underway with three rounds to go. As Phil Mickelson demonstrated on hole #7, hitting one´s approach shot above the hole in the wrong position leads to chips or putts on greens that are (H/T Dave Hill, RIP) faster than a fart in a cast iron skillet. Phil could have two-putted from there nine of ten times, but he chipped, and took five to get down. That´s Augusta National!

Bill Haas is a good four inches taller than his father but it´s uncanny how they have they same move through the ball e.g. hip turn etc.

Product of training? Familiarity? Genetics? When you see the heavyweight Stadlers´ nearly identical moves you have to lean towards the DNA theory.

I´m afraid Buckeye Ron finally got tired of the bigots that post regularly on this site. It´s a shame because I enjoyed his comments for a number of years. I do miss him as well.

If it is bigotry to express dislike for Tiger Wood, whom BR regularly went to the mat for, then I guess I´m a bigot.

But this is a news site. The threads are for opinions. Not for PC tiptoeing around individual posters. No one seems to mind that Zurich Mike probably got tired of the atmosphere here. And he was a stalwart LDotter for many years.

My dislike for Tiger had nothing whatsoever to do with his race or "bigotry". I just thought he was an unpleasant, arrogant bum.

I´m also sorry Zurich Mike apparently doesn´t post here anymore. I think the site was stronger with Buckeye Ron and Zurich Mike as regulars.

The course looked good, which required an unbelieveable effort to clean up the damage caused by the ice storm. Today I read an article that said 250 trees were removed. My buddy in Augusta told me it was "massive chain saws going all day ---- worst storm in a century."

Zurich Mike is still here. He´s been able to cut the wheat from the chaff it seems.

BR apparently had inside knowledge on the electoral process and claimed vote fraud was a fantasy. He knew a lot more about Woods than he did golf so not sure, beyond the passion, what he brought to the table.

And yeah, with the racial division inflamed by this administration, there has been a regular parade of ugly race based stories posted over the years. It´s become very difficult for many to turn the other cheek, just as difficult for black conservatives to reconcile this ugly, ugly mess we´re in the middle of.

Just as soon as Israel accepted an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire Hamas fired 47 rockets killing one Israeli citizen. Anyone who has followed the conflict could have predicted this with certainty; the point of a ceasefire — for a terrorist organization — is to break it for exactly the same reason it purposely attacks women and children. Dr. Anna Geifman tried to explain that the reason why innocents are selected as terror targets is because “children are the last consecrated absolute”. That is just why they must be killed in the cruelest way possible. For “militant nihilism strives to ruin first and

Charlie Haden, who died on Friday at age 76, was one of the most revered and influential acoustic jazz bassists of his generation, largely because he was incapable of being dull. Rooted in folk and country music, Haden combined earthy simplicity with an engaging storytelling style that inspired and propelled the music of dozens of artists, from saxophonist Ornette Coleman and pianist Keith Jarrett to drummer Ginger Baker and singer Norah Jones. His conversational approach to improvisation forged a new model for post-1960 jazz bassists, resulting in four Grammys.

Bill Roggio has a very interesting article describing the ISIS plan to invest Baghdad. (Snip) As everyone now knows the campaign against US forces back in 2006 failed. The attackers were counter-encircled by US-led forces who established intelligence assets of their own to find and destroy the enemy. Much effort was put into tracking back weapons smuggling routes back to their sources, including explosively formed penetration IEDs whose cores were manufactured in Iran. US conventional units provided the “top cover” for the intel guys who went out to look for the enemy. Now ISIS is playing the same number on

Why Israel will soon be the only state able to govern Judea and Samaria, and the only military force capable of securing its borders. A one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is upon us. It won’t arrive by Naftali Bennett’s proposal to annex the West Bank’s Area C, or through the efforts of BDS campaigners and Jewish Voice for Peace to alter the Jewish state. But it will happen, sooner rather than later, as the states on Israel’s borders disintegrate and other regional players annex whatever they can. As that happens, Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria is becoming inevitable.

The initial reports from the Los Angeles Times described the massacre of almost 30 women in the Zayouna neighborhood of Baghdad as an unsolved mystery: “gunmen in Iraq reportedly kill at least 30 in upscale Baghdad area”. (Snip) It was not long before a more sinister motive made itself plain. The murder site was a brothel. The gunmen came in order to kill every one in it and teach the world an Islamic lesson. “Police believe men using silenced

The Democratic Party creates its coalition by catering to a diverse group of ethnic interest groups, and sometimes the special interests of those special interest groups clash. (Snip) It’s true that our government’s reaction to what’s happening on the border makes no sense if we ordinary people look at it conventionally. But it makes plenty of sense to Obama and others in his party who think it will give them a permanent and unbeatable majority in the not-too-distant future, as well as placate the huge Hispanic voting bloc in the present. And if their formerly reliable ethnic group, African Americans,

LYING FLAT ON THE deck of a fishing boat was a twenty-pound striped bass, its gills rising and collapsing like the bellows of an accordion. "Purple is the color of adrenaline. That´s why the bass have a purplish tint when you catch them," explained Captain Sloan Gurney of Black Rock Sport Fishing Charters. Standing over the fish, grinning triumphantly, was chef Anita Lo, who had just won the battle with the formidable opponent on the other end of her line. Ms. Lo´s blood could well have been purple at that moment—she was exhilarated. She caught six fish that afternoon in

John Seigenthaler, a legendary Tennessee journalist, intimate confidant to two near-presidents and fierce advocate for racial equality, died Friday. He was 86. Mr. Seigenthaler passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family. "We celebrate his life — his devotion to social justice, his advocacy of human rights, and his enduring loyalty to friends and family," said his son, John Michael Seigenthaler. "He was proud of his hometown, Nashville, and grateful for the opportunity to share his energy and passion with this community." As a reporter for The Tennessean, Mr. Seigenthaler once saved a suicidal man´s life on a bridge over the

CHATTANOOGA — In a move that is unusual but not unprecedented, the United Auto Workers union has sidestepped its loss in a worker vote in February and created a local union to represent workers at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee. And what´s surprising, considering decades of fierce anti-union efforts from the other foreign-transplant automakers in the South, this time the union has the tacit approval of Volkswagen itself. "We have a consensus agreement with Volkswagen management to form the local and be recognized when we get a majority of the workers to join," said UAW International Secretary-Treasurer Gary Casteel of

David Goldman writing from Tel Aviv, explains that Hamas is broke, has lost its patrons in Egypt and weaker than ever. It is bombarding Israel to attract more terror funding. By contrast, Israel has thrived under fire and is poised to become more prosperous than ever. (Snip) Eugene Volkh famously described how Asians in America became white. The process was simple: they became rich. This implicit correlation between wealth and race distorts nearly every media story. Proof that Israel is racist is shown by the fact that they inflict disproportionate casualties in every fight with the Palestinians, something you might

Sunny with light missile cover in Tel Aviv this morning. I awoke to muffled thuds in the distance, Iron Dome shooting down Syrian-made missiles launched from Gaza, according to news reports. (Snip) But the broader point is that Israel will win a war of attrition. Hamas has shot off hundreds of rockets (including one that landed a few kilometers from me up north in Zichron Yaakov while I had lunch there yesterday) without causing a single injury. Iron Dome has worked brilliantly. Traffic was a bit lighter than normal last night, but there wasn’t a free table at any of

STARKE – Florida prison officials today executed a man convicted of the 1994 rape and slaying of an 11-year-old girl. It was the state’s sixth execution this year. Eddie Wayne Davis was executed by injection at Florida State Prison at 6:43 p.m. Davis declined to say any final words before his sentence was carried out. Executioners put the IV needle into Davis’ left arm around 6:30 p.m. Davis began muttering to himself after the process began, but witnesses in the viewing area couldn’t hear what he was saying because the speakers had been turned off. Davis’ chest heaved up and
