Early course assessment from Watney


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Nick Watney opened the Masters with a 68 on Thursday and was among the early finishers Friday, posting 76.

In his words, here’s a quick assessment of the difference in the days:

“It's a totally opposite wind from yesterday and also with the rain it made it a little bit longer. Definitely a few tougher pins out there. So I think scores will go up a touch. There are some tough flags and the wind, depending upon which gust you get, the par-5s are reachable or not. “
