Masters 2020: GolfPunk takeaway

Not since the heydays of one Tiger Woods have we seen such a dominant performance. Johnson was out of the traps fast with his opening seven-under-par 65 and despite a slightly lacklustre showing on Friday he stormed it from there.

Beware the Bryson Bounce back

It all started so well for Bryson. A huge three wood down the 10th hole and a short iron set up a short birdie putt. However, the slippery five footer failed to find the cup and suddenly it was all change. DeChambeau would only hit half of the remaining fairways but somehow he would find a way to shoot a two-under round of 70.

Nicklaus and Player stoke up the ball debate

An 80-year-old Jack Nicklaus and the ever-youthful looking Gary Player, 85 hit the ceremonial opening tee shots to open the Masters Tournament at a dank and gloomy early morning at Augusta. “I believe they probably would have brought it back this year if it wasn’t for Covid, or at least they would have thought about it or got serious about bringing it back,” Nicklaus said
