Early Sunday at the Masters

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Look for a Sunday Shootout in the final round of the Masters.

Early scores indicate there are birdies aplenty available at Augusta National today. Bo Van Pelt has rocketed into a tie for 30th by going 5-under par through 15. Thomas Bjorn and Luke Donald 3-under through 14, Keegan Bradley 3-under through 10.

Nos. 2 and 3 have been generous. Twenty-four of 40 golfers have made birdie at the par-5 second, and 10 have made 3 on the par-4 third. The par-4 seventh also has been target practice, with an eagle and 10 birdies yielded to this point.

No. 1 is playing tough, as it has all tournament. So far there are 25 pars, 12 bogeys and just three birds. The par-3 fourth is also dragging on scores, with24 pars, 11 bogeys and just one bird. So it will be interesting to see how those on the leader board make it through the four-hole opening stretch.

The last group of Peter Hanson and Phil Mickelson tees off at 2:40.
