Golf: TOMS ENJOYS RUBBISH FINISH.
He was finishing off when most of the crowds had gone home and the Augusta National staff were cleaning up the course. "They were out there cleaning up the trash, picking up stuff and mowing the grass," said the 2001 USPGA champion. "We were having to tell people to stand still as I was putting out.
"But it was so calm and quiet it was great and I managed to come home well and give myself a chance after the weekend.
"I like where I am - and I hope to be the last to finish on Sunday as well."
Brett Quigley was still happy with his worst opening round of the year after returning to Augusta the day after the birth of his first child.
Quigley returned to Florida on Tuesday to witness the arrival of Lillian Sage Augusta and got back at 9pm on Wednesday.
He then carried her photo round during his first-round 76 on his Masters debut played with his white hospital bracelet on his right wrist.
"I hate to say it didn't matter but it was nice and peaceful out there," he said. "It was probably the only way I could enjoy my first round at the Masters.
"I was out there fighting back the tears thinking about my wife Amy and Lillian. The last two days have probably been the biggest two days of my life."
