It’s Tuesday of Masters Week, which means Augusta National has released the pairings and tee times for the opening two rounds of the 2013 Masters. Beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, 1988 champion Sandy Lyle will kick off the competition with John Peterson and Nathan Smith.
The 2013 Masters field will be finalized Sunday as the last putt drops at the Valero Texas Open. One spot remains available to the winner of the tournament in San Antonio if they’re not already qualified. The final field will be either 93 or 94 players, depending on the possible final addition. Here’s a look at the 93 already qualified players.
The Shell Houston Open is the final tuneup before the Masters for many of the world’s top golfers. At the conclusion of this tournament, pros like Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley and Lee Westwood will return to the safety of their homes, where they will strut before a mirror in search of the perfect set of accessories to match up with the ever-desirable and elusive green jacket.
The hours are counting down, and quickly. You’ve got to finish your NCAA Tournament bracket (or two, or three, or 10) to get into your pool in time for tonight’s tip-off of the opening-round-slash-play-in games. We’re here to help at Back9Network, which is why we asked our talent to weigh in with their picks for the Final Four. You’re welcome — or we’re sorry — in advance.

Amateur and professional golfers alike are bringing back the retro headcover craze to their golf bags. They’re a way to express your individuality in a game that often conforms to the masses. Iliac Golf can help you show your true colors.
Bled dry of dramatic tension and star power long in advance of the final, last week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship was, by Thursday evening, a tournament desperately in search of a story. Less than 24 hours later we had one, in the form of a controversy entirely of the PGA Tour’s own confection. Give them a day, and they’ll give you a headline: so these guys are good, after all.
Since the advent of the water cooler, golf fans have gathered around to discuss their ideal foursome. Who you’d want to play 18 alongside is an ever-evolving proposition that can change depending on something as innocuous as the weather. It can also say a lot about what type of person you are or want to be. Think of it almost as a golfer’s Rorschach test.
For those who may not have taken notice, Matt Kuchar affirmed once again that he has a game made for golf’s bigger stages. Though Kuchar’s romp through the WGC Match Play Championship produced his fifth PGA Tour victory, each of the past three have come with higher stakes at play. He opened the 2010 FedEx Cup playoffs by winning The Barclays, following that with The Players Championship last year. Dig little deeper, though, and you’ll find a definite trend emerging.
In this week’s “Kick-Ass 9,” Neil Helsper brings you highlights from a golf tournament where a snowfight broke out, an icy lake where a golf tournament broke out and a list of the 10 best dressed regardless of weather.
Match Play doesn’t always work. More to the point, Match Play almost never works for large audiences and television networks. If Tiger and Rory play each other in the final at the WGC-Accenture Match Play on Sunday, then I will be temporarily proven wrong. However, if Thongchai Jaidee plays David Lynn in the finals on Sunday, the Daytona 500 coverage might get a little boost in ratings. Lest you think that the odds of that last one are far too great to concern yourselves with then you just haven’t been paying attention. In match play, anything is possible.
In this week’s Fantasy Foursome, Jon Lord tees it up with an L.A. boy done good, the defending champ in the desert, a strong contender for the NBA MVP award and a pair of guys who arguably had a more important tee time over the weekend.
In this week’s Kick-Ass 9, Neil Helsper showcases the PGA Tour’s latest dance phenom, a ridiculously large QR code and the antics of Sergio Garcia. We begin the countdown at No. 9. 9. Dance off: On Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, rookie James Hahn slammed home a birdie on the 16th and then crushed it with a Gangnam Style dance. Nice moves, even if at this point this song is about as relevant as the Macarena.
If the Minnesota Vikings do ever make it back to the Super Bowl, then what happens to those purple people-eaters who lord over the 16th tee box like it is some sort of Nordic funeral pyre? Do they abandon their post in an effort to be there for their favorite football team as they play for the first NFL championship or stay in Phoenix and remain members of the loudest arena in golf? We can verify this later but I’d be very surprised to see many Colin Kaepernick or Ray Lewis jerseys hanging around the Waste Management Open this week. Now on to this week’s Superlatives.
