Masters Saturday: Review

By now, you have probably seen the leaderboard for the 2008 Masters. Trevor Immelman distanced himself from the field, walking into the clubhouse after a stellar birdie on the 18th at 11 under par for 54 holes.

South African Immelman will enter Sunday with a two stroke lead over Brandt Snedeker, who started the day with the lead.

With prediction for difficult weather conditions on Sunday, Immelman and Snedeker will face a tough battle against several potential low scorers:
Steve Flesch - 8 under
Paul Casey (right)-7 under
Tiger Woods - 5 under

Tiger Woods began to finally heat up with a round of 3 under par, which leaves Tiger on the outside looking in at the leaders with only 18 holes left. Tiger faces a 6 stroke deficit, which, interestingly enough, would mark Tiger's first win in a major when not leading after 54 holes if he were to capture another green jacket.

My predictions:

Immelman - tires out after front nine; strain of leading the Masters and the noise of Tiger's crowd ahead limit his scoring.

Flesch - continues his Saturday woes; early bogies prevent from being a Sunday threat.

Casey - emerges to confront Immelman and whoever else leads with strong play through wind.

Woods - early comeback puts pressure on opponents; possible Sunday comeback to earn another major victory.
