AUGUSTA, Ga. — Let’s just begin by saying that in a perfect world, the golfers from Northern Ireland would do all the interviews. They’d set Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy up behind the microphones, and the planet would be a happier place.
Ten to watch
Jason Day No scoop here. The hottest player in the world is a great driver, long, and is putting with confidence. That’s the whole package.
Phil Mickelson It’s Augusta, and even when he’s playing lousy golf, Phil is a top-10 machine here. T-2 last year. Never count him out.
Bubba Watson Another lefty, two-time champ usually manages to shoot his way into the mix, and then look out. He can close the deal.
