Amen corner

By Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published April 8, 2001

WHO CRUISED: Phil Mickelson, who trails Tiger Woods by a shot, got through with par-par-birdie; Mark Calcavecchia went birdie-par-birdie; Chris DiMarco made three straight pars; Ernie Els went par-par-eagle; David Duval had three straight pars; and Angel Cabrera had par-birdie-birdie.

WHO STUMBLED: Chris Perry sandwiched pars around a triple bogey at No. 12; Bob May went bogey-bogey-birdie; Steve Jones went bogey-bogey-birdie.

THE ROLLER-COASTER RIDE: After draining a long birdie putt at the 11th, Tiger Woods stood on the 12th tee, undecided. As the wind died down, his 8-iron tee shot flew over the green, and he made bogey. Then he unleashed a big drive, hit an 8-iron from 185 yards that carried onto the green, where he narrowly missed the eagle putt.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I like this place. It's very frustrating, but I like it. I always say, it's my favorite place to get to, my favorite tournament to play and by Sunday, my favorite place to get the hell out of there." -- Mark Calcavecchia, runner-up at the 1988 Masters who is tied for third, two shots behind Tiger Woods.
