Masters 2011: Golfers practice through unusual circumstances

Masters 2011: Golfers practice through unusual circumstances
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

There was a rather unusual patron attending a practice round at Augusta National Wednesday morning for Masters Tournament champions Phil Mickelson and Fred Couples.

Mickelson and Couples, playing with Masters rookie Kevin Streelman, paused in their walk up the eighth as a small deer bounded across the fairway from his apparent hiding spot amid the pinestraw and azalea bushes between the first and eighth fairways.

The deer crossed in front of the golfers and headed toward the second fairway.

Augusta.com reports Mickelson, who pulled his tee shot into the pinestraw down the left side of the fairway just before the deer encounter, played his errant shot anyway. One patron remained dangerously close to Mickelson's line of sight as he stood over his ball.
