Choi (-8), trailed by the leaders, Lee Westwood (-12) and Phil Mickelson (-11).

My Take: The kid, the staff, and the search for redemption

It's been a while since a 20-year-old, seven-hole hitting right fielder got as much attention as Braves rookie Jason Heyward has gotten since spring training started up and on through his first-career at-bat which was good for three RBIs and an abrupt homer.

Planning a trip to the Masters? Rules to live by

Citizens of Statesboro, I apologize for the delay on this column. Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia's molasses slow play prevented me from writing it sooner. If you've won the Golden Ticket in the form of a Masters badge for Sunday's play, this could help.

That would be ridiculous. I was simply advocating supporting Statesboro's local frame dealers).
