Masters: Top 10 story lines to watch at Augusta National

Driven to distraction Willett with wife Nicole and son ZachPETER BYRNE

With violent storms forecast, McIlroy got up early Wednesday to squeeze in another nine holes.

The Augusta National patrons roared with laughter. By the time Thompson walked off the 12th green, Witters was waiting to deliver the news of the four-shot adjustment.

Ninety-four invited golfers will tee it up on Thursday for a shot at golf immortality.

"The break allowed me to work on a few things in my game that whenever you're playing week-in, week-out you may neglect a little bit", he said.

Dustin Johnson smiles on the seventh green during a practice round for the Masters golf tournament Tuesday, April 4, 2017, in Augusta, Ga. Every shot Tiger Woods plays the camera is on him. The 22-year-old, who at the time of notification was leading by 2-strokes, looked stunned and asked "Is this a joke?"

He hasn't come particularly close ever since.

"I just can not believe the situation", Ryu said.

While Thompson made a bogey on the first playoff hole, Ryu made a birdie to win the tournament.

"It is unfortunate with what happened, I did not mean that at all, I had no idea that I did it", Thompson said to the Golf Channel.

Kim Kardashian planning on having third baby
The reality star said that she will undergo uterus fix surgery to remove the scar tissue found inside the walls of her uterus. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attend the Kanye West Yeezy Season 4 fashion show on September 7, 2016 in New York City.

He was the favorite in 2015 until Jordan Spieth blew everyone away. "He made a mess of it one year".

Q. 13 when you were told walking to that tee, how were you able to sum up - whatever it takes to make birdie there. His peers talk in terms of "when" instead of "if". And I hope everyone knows that. "I like the elevation changes, the sidehill lies, the pull to Rae's Creek, the way it affects putts", Spieth said. "It is one of many tournaments I've lost given a certain performance on a hole or a stretch of holes". What an unbelievable story it would be if the world's No. 3 player has the tournament of his life following this wonderful news about his mom's health.

That, too, might be an advantage. "And then he won the U.S. Open". For one, this wouldn't have happened if Thompson wasn't among the tournament's contenders and, therefore, was on TV.

McIlroy has played only 10 competitive rounds since he returned from the rib injury.

Suzann Pettersen reacts as she sinks a birdie putt on the 6th hole during the final round of the ANA Inspiration LPGA golf tournament at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA.

In the Match Play, he only played twice when Gary Woodland had to withdraw. In the chase for the career Grand Slam, of which the Northern Irishman only needs the Masters to join the five men who have accomplished the feat, McIlroy admitted to playing 99 holes at Augusta National in the past two weeks.

"It's never over", McIlroy said.

"It's kind of a weird feeling", Ryu said, "but at the same time, I am really proud of myself and I just really appreciate everything right now".
