Two good scores, two bad shirts
Question of the Day
That wasn’t terribly confusing, though their shirts were.
Viewers around the country had to be doing double takes as the cameras switched between the two players as they battled for the lead in the late afternoon on the back nine. That’s because both were wearing the same garish shirt, color and all.
The shirts were partly striped and an acid shade of green. From a distance, it was hard to tell which player was which.
Johnson was asked if he would like to wear something on Sunday that moderator Tom Nelson _ an Augusta member _ was wearing in the interview room. That, too, comes in green and is put over the shoulders of the Masters champion.
“I would love to,” Johnson said, laughing.
MICKELSON MOMENT: There’s a reason fans love Phil Mickelson. He usually goes the extra step to please them.
Mickelson was at it again Thursday after finishing his opening round of 71. After signing his scorecard in the clubhouse he came out to see about 30 fans lined up in a roped off area hoping to get autographs from Lefty.
“You can’t sign outside the clubhouse but for him I’ll make an exception,” Mickelson said.
Those waiting applauded the move, then someone yelled out that Mickelson should sign for the woman, too, for giving him the Sharpie.
He didn’t, and said it should serve as a lesson.
