2012 Masters Leaderboard: Fred Couples A Surprise Leader Saturday Morning

Lee Westwood carried Thursday, but the 2012 Masters Leaderboard has a more familiar and less expected name on top—Fred Couples is tied with Jason Dufner for the lead at five under, following a second-round 67. Westwood shot a 73, pushing him into a group one back of the leaders that includes Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy.

As for Tiger Woods—things have been better. He's three over after shooting a 75, putting him 40 back of the leaders with the likes of Charl Schwartzel. For a constantly updated live leaderboard, click through to's auto-refreshing beauty and just stare at it until it blinks. Sometimes I find myself staring at it through multiple blinks, until I don't even remember what I was doing there, but don't let that stop you.

For more SB Nation coverage of the 2012 Masters Tournament, check out our very own golf blog, the adorably titled "Waggle Room." I realize it's a pun, but I also like to imagine it as a physical room in which people hang out, kind of like a sitcom set.


2012 Masters: TV Coverage, Live Streaming Online Will Require Multiple Screens

Your 2012 Masters tournament online streaming schedule needs to be guided by something, so why not pairings and tee times? Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson are going at 12:45 PM CDT, if you need some sturdy, recognizable names; Rory McIlroy goes at 1:25, surprise Good Friday leader Fred Couples is off at 1:45, and some guy with a goofy name, Tiger Woods, is on at 9:45. On TV, CBS will have coverage from 2:30 PM to 6:00. Live online streaming with deserves its own paragraph.

Between 10:45 and 5:00 they'll be covering the Amen Corner holes live; from 11:30-6:00 they'll be streaming featured pairings, as well as live coverage of holes 15 and 16, and some live cut-away highlights. You might need multiple computers to watch all of this at once. Which—I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, to be honest.

For even more guidance, keep another computer—perhaps a tablet—tuned to the live Masters leaderboard, and another another computer chatting with the bloggers at Waggle Room. That should cover it, for now.


2012 Masters Leaderboard: Lee Westwood Tops All Golfers Through One Round

Through round one Lee Westwood, the No. 3 golfer in the world, is the leader of the 2012 Masters tournament at Augusta National, starting things 5-under par with a first-round 67 on Thursday. Peter Hanson of Sweden tied for second with Louis Oosthuizen at 4-under, with Americans Ben Crane, Jason Dufner, and Bubba Watson shooting first-round 69s to top the more patriotic side of the leader board.

Some big names were visible nearby—Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh each shot 70s, with Rory McIlroy at 71 and Tiger Woods back at 72 in a frustrating but definitely recoverable even-par first round. The second round is already underway Friday morning, with Westwood maintaining a narrow lead at even par through his first few holes. Singh birdied the third hole to move one step closer to the top early on.
