2012 MASTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT
April 7, 2012  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 3:30 p.m. ET

 
This is why sports on TV is so much fun to watch: It's often completely different in practice than in theory. In theory, this was Tiger Woods' comeback vehicle, until he drove that vehicle into a ditch (or a sand trap) during yesterday's messy-looking Round 2. He starts today at eight strokes off the lead, with Rory McIlroy only one stroke behind the leaders, and Phil Mickelson three. But look who's the co-leader, with Jason Dufner, at five under par: Good old Fred Couples. And when I say "good old," I mean it. He's good, because yesterday he produced the lowest Round 2 at this year's Masters, a five-under-par 67. And he's old, because he's 52. The oldest player to win a major is Jack Nicklaus, who won his sixth Masters 26 years ago at age 46. For a perspective on this year’s tournament, see TVWW contributor Gerald Jordan’s new Crossing Jordan column HERE.
