Farber: Remarkable that Tiger played respectable golf
Award-winning journalist Michael Farber joined the show to talk about Tiger Woods, the Masters and the Montreal Canadiens.
Corey Conners continued his strong play at The Masters in 2022, finishing 3-under in a tie for sixth place and giving him his third straight top 10. Meanwhile, Canadian Mackenzie Hughes shot a 6-over-par 78 in the final round to finish the tournament at plus-15.
Scottie Scheffler looked oblivious to the harsh conditions Saturday, at one point stretching his lead to six shots. He held on during a wild and windy ride along the back nine at Augusta National, escaping with bogey from the trees on the 18th for a 1-under 71 and a three-shot lead over Cameron Smith.
The magic the five-time Masters champion summoned so easily for so long was nowhere to be found during another labored four-plus hour journey underneath the Georgia pines on Saturday. Tiger Woods' 6-over 78 marked his worst in 93 career rounds at the tournament he has come to define and left him at 7-over.
Tiger Woods had an up and down day but managed to post a 2-over 74 on Friday to stay in the mix for the weekend at the Masters. Woods, who shot 71 in his opening round on his comeback from injuries suffered in a car crash, faltered early in the second round but managed to rebound on the back nine to finish two rounds at 1-over 145.
Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson rolled into the interview room for a great big saccharine nostalgia tour -- a preview of what awaits Tiger Woods once he accepts that his days of competing for titles are finished. That didn't feel imminent watching him Thursday. He's fighting to keep from joining the museum pieces who hit ceremonial shots. It's always hard to know when to leave.
Steve and Chris are joined by Corey Conners coach Derek Ingram to talk about the lead up to the opening round, Corey's chances at the Masters, how the track will play and Tiger's impact on the tournament.
