Augusta, Ga.

It's a beautiful morning at The Masters, and the forecasts are for highs in the 70s and 80s with no precipitation all week.

The tourney has begun, and Stewart Cink, Jonas Blixt and Martin Kaymer lead at one-under.

Wrote three pieces for today's paper. Please check them out in print or at Startribune.com.

For me, the tee times to watch are at 9:41 and 9:52 a.m., Minnesota time.

at 9:41, it's defending champion Adam Scott, Jason Dufner and amateur Matthew Fitzpatrick. Scott and Dufner have won the last two majors.

At 9:52, it's Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy. All three have the game to win this week. McIlroy has a chance to become the best player in the game, Spieth might be the best young player in the game, and Reed thinks he's the best player in the game.

It is strange not having Tiger Woods to focus on, but I think a host of good young golfers will show off this week.

I'll be on @1500ESPN at 12:15ish from Augusta.
