The 2012 Masters golf tournament is set to begin its second day at 7:50 a.m. EST on Friday at Augusta National.
The best options to watch the Masters via a live stream are at Masters.com, CBSSports.com, and ESPN3.com. CBS Sports and Masters.com both have live coverage of a majority of the holes beginning at 10:45 a.m., while ESPN officially picks up its coverage at 3 p.m. Yesterday ESPN showed live look-ins every time Tiger Woods hit a golf ball, but didn't really delve in until 3 p.m.
Tiger Woods came into the first day as the favorite to win the prestigious golf tournament, but had an inconsistent first round that landed him at tied for 28th place.
He managed a few nice shots during the opening round -- he birdied the 3rd, 8th, and 10th -- but late bogeys doomed him to an even round. Woods bogeyed the 17thand 18th holes -- both par-4s -- that dropped him in the leaderboard, but the first round wasn't a complete disaster for him.
Henrik Stenson looked poised to open up a big lead after the first round, but stumbled badly on No. 18 with a quadruple-bogey 8. That dropped him from the clear leader spot at 6-under par to a 1-under 71.
After the first round, it was Lee Westwood at the top of the leaderboard with a 5-under 67 round. Westwood is one of the steadiest golfers in the game and could be a major contender the rest of the way out.
Peter Hanson and Louis Oosthuize are right on his tail after finishing the day at 4-under.
