“Featured Groups” not so Featured

Can we take a second and talk about how pathetic the Featured Groups coverage on Masters.com have been?

Waking up Thursday morning I was PUMPED, as all golf fans are during Masters week, to watch the best of the best try and battle the weather conditions. With a quick glance at the tee times I noticed Spieth, Fowler, and Phil all teeing off in the morning, and assumed I would see ATLEAST one of those groups on Masters.com.


Instead we got to watch Zach Johnson shoot 77 and Adam Hadwin three putt his way around Augusta. Oddly enough, Thursdays groups were star studded compared to the trash groups “featured” for Friday morning. Friday morning “Featured Groups”

  • 9:06 a.m.: Danny Willett, Matt Kuchar, Curtis Luck
  • 9:28 a.m.: Angel Cabrera, Henrik Stenson, Tyrrell Hatton

Update: Willet got an 8 on the first hole. With one over the hill Cabrera, an amateur Luck, and a struggling Stenson, these groups could not be less entertaining.

Luckily, the Friday afternoon featured groups, are just that, featured!

  • 1:41 p.m.: Jordan Spieth, Martin Kaymer, Matthew Fitzpatrick
  • 2:03 p.m.: Brandt Snedeker, Justin Rose, Jason Day

On the bright side I can get some work done in the mean time and once 1:41 rolls around I can fire up the coverage and just sit back and enjoy.
