AFTER last year's third place, Peter Hanson's Masters campaign has been bitterly disappointing but I can see him battling on for a respectable finish.
His consistent record owes much to an ability to keep moving forward when all seems lost, as illustrated last week with a final round 66 in Texas.
Today's opponent Carl Pettersson clearly does not like this place, registering one single round of level par in 12 attempts.

SUNDAY at a Major is always a time of regret for some top stars languishing down the field, reflecting on opportunities lost. So it may be for Dustin Johnson, who had a chance to get to double figures under par on Friday afternoon.
The fact he's fallen away confirms my suspicion that Dustin doesn't have the skills yet to cope with a drying out Augusta so I can see a further struggle today against an opponent who can always be relied upon to fight hard for every shot.

SPEAKING of stars whose heads can go down the final day nap must involve taking on Sergio. He hasn't registered a top-20 at Augusta for nine years, tending to fall away as conditions get harder over the weekend. In stark contrast, two top-20s from three tries is a fine start to BVP's Masters career, and scores of 70 and 64 in those final rounds is a further tip.

The pressure on tonight's final groups will be immense and, on the basis of past experiences, that makes Cabrera a must-bet as the clear outsider of two. Whereas Angel has won two Major titles, Snedeker folded in the final group here five years ago and didn't cope well in contention at last year's Open.
