AUGUSTA, Georgia — He plays a sexy game of golf, owns two green jackets and — in what constitutes a show of major respect in these parts —Bubba Watson made rabid Georgia Bulldog fans take a break from spring football to watch some golf this weekend.
Asked which of those last two was the bigger accomplishment, Watson didn't hesitate.
"Well, obviously," he smiled, "you always say, 'Go Dawgs!'"

AUGUSTA, Georgia — Even without golf's biggest star, this suddenly is shaping up as a Masters for the ages.
Jordan Spieth, playing a brand of big-time golf that belies his 20 years, kept his cool amid the chaos of Saturday at Augusta National. He was too busy trying to handle a lightning-fast golf course to even look at a leaderboard until he couldn't avoid them over the closing holes of a wild round.
His name at the top with Bubba Watson was compelling enough.

AUGUSTA, Georgia — Adam Scott lost his touch on the treacherous greens at Augusta National.
Scott came up short with his long putter on Saturday, three-putting twice in the first four holes and tumbled down the leaderboard at the Masters.

AUGUSTA, Georgia (AP) — On the course, it's all about going low. Outside the ropes, it's more about stacking high.
Masters cups are the most sought-after souvenirs at Augusta National. Fans buy drinks — beers are a modest $3 — empty the logo-etched cups and start stacking them high. Really high. Others even dig through trash cans to get extras.
