England, South Africa, Sweden, Scotland, Spain, Italy and USA… it’s an international leaderboard after the first round of The Masters.
CBS will be covering the final rounds of the 2012 Masters Tournament on Saturday, April 7th and Sunday, April 8th. The following golfers are who I believe to be the top 6 contenders to compete this week.
Justin Rose closed with a 2-under 70 Sunday to win the Cadillac Championship at Doral, after a dramatic departure by Tiger Woods in the middle of the round due to a leg injury that could leave his appearance at The Masters questionable.
Bubba Watson regained his lead about the time he was losing control with his tee shots. He still wound up with a 5-under 67 on Saturday and a three-shot lead in the Cadillac Championship.
Playing only his sixth round of the year, Adam Scott faced a strong test Thursday at Doral and never looked better.
Even though Tiger Woods gave him a bit of a challenge in the end, but Rory McIlroy won the Honda Classic with a performance worthy of the new No. 1 player in golf.
Mickelson closed with an 8-under 64, beating Woods by 11 shots in a one-sided showdown at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Tiger Woods will continue his comeback season in the coming weeks when he makes two stops in South Florida.
His game has been missing for quite a while, but it’s now official, Tiger Woods will not play in the 2011 U.S. Open.
Early Thursday morning, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer made their way to the first green at the Augusta National Country Club to hit the ceremonial first tee shot that starts the annual Masters Championship.
