Parnevik Learns Augusta from Master Norman

Jesper Parnevik says a round he played last year taught him an invaluable lesson about Augusta National - be conservative.
'Greg played very safe all the way around,' said Parnevik. 'Maybe he would go for the pin on three or four holes, but basically he was very conservative. On 15, for example, he had 200 yards to the pin and he laid up. I was about 30 yards further out and I'm banging away with a 3-wood. He felt he had a better chance of making birdie if he went at it in 3.'
