Masters hangover? Not for Jhonattan Vegas. The rookie missed the cut in his first trip to Augusta National -- he’s actually missed his last three cuts -- but that doesn’t seem to be affecting him so far at TPC San Antonio, where he’s 2 under through his first 12 holes and near the top of the leaderboard.
In all, there are five players in this week’s field who finished in the top 10 at the Masters -- defending champion Adam Scott, Geoff Ogilvy, Angel Cabrera, Bo Van Pelt and Ryan Palmer.
Scott, Ogilvy and Cabrera will play together through the first two rounds later this afternoon.
Speaking of Cabrera, he led the Masters in total driving. If he has another week like that at TPC San Antonio he should be in contention given the narrow fairways there.
