    Default Tiger & his practice rds.

    Just wondering...Can any golfer in the field play practice rounds at Augusta this early or just Tiger? How come other PGA players don't go early?

    I believe those in the field can also practice "this early."

    Note, TW has more time for this than most since he is not playing tour events.

    Ogilvy tweeted last week that he had played a practice round. Brandt Snedeker played about 20+ practice rounds as an amateur when he had qualified for the Masters by winning the US Pub Links.

    So yea, other guys can do it too .

    Acutally, I looked it up out of curiousity and it was more like 40-50.

    It's my understanding that once you are in the field, you can play as often leading up to the tourny as you like. IIRC, past champions are considered honorary members and can play anytime the course is open.

    The club also took the privilege away from Bernhard Langer after he held up play for members. If you play it as practice, you better let the members play through.
