British Open champion Rory McIlroy was so impressed with Augustan Jeff Knox’s putting in the third round of April’s Masters Tournament that he sent him a letter saying he’d like to play “a couple of practice rounds” with him at Augusta National Golf Club before the 2015 event, Knox said Tuesday.
Bill Haas, who is playing in his fifth Masters, shot 4-under-par 68 on Thursday to take a one-shot lead over defending champion and World No. 2 Adam Scott, 2012 winner Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen, who lost a playoff to Watson that year.
Patrick Reed believes he's a "top-five" player in the world. The only reason he's 23rd in the world ranking, he says, is because he's so young (23) and hasn't played in enough PGA Tour events (43) to get his ranking any higher.
