How about that Masters, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers?

Congrats to Angel Cabrera who won with a 12 under but at one point fell back to 9 under. I haven't seen an Argentinian retreat like that since the British invaded the Falklands.

San Diegan Phil Mickelson shoots a record tying 30 on the first nine and then plops a nine iron into Rae's creek on the scorching-pretty 12th hole in Amen corner. It was like a beautiful women threw a drink in his face.

It was the worst mistake Phil made all day if you don't count the black pants with the white stripes. Lefty looked like a prisoner trying to escape in his pajamas.

And how about when Aussie broadcaster Ian Baker-Finch described Tiger's 10th, 11th and 12th pars? He sounded like gunfire: "Paaah, paaaah, paaaah."

And the best round of the day went to UCLA's John Merrick. It was touching when, after his round, Merrrick went to his cage and said; "I'm not an animal."
