Four Tech Alumni Storm Amen Corner

Scott Halleran

As sport's most mystic tradition begins this week, Georgia Tech is well represented.

The Masters teed off this morning, and if you're anything like me work will be quite the challenge for the next two days.  Even if you're not, though, you still have a rooting interest!  Matt Kuchar, Roberto Castro, Stewart Cink, and Larry Mize all made the tournament; Castro for the first time.  Those you who are AOT's age (or maybe a bit younger) will remember Mize's gutsy chip-in from 140 feet out to take his only green jacket in '87; a shot that put him over The Shark in the second play-off hole.

This year, Tech alumni have a chance to do it again.  At the time of this writing, Mize is tied for sixth at one under.  Cink opened the day in the lead, but fell to even after a recording a double bogey on amen corner (hole 13's infamous opening shots).  Kuchar has not yet teed off, he's in the later groups thanks to his top performance on the tour this year.  He took second in the Houston open last week after falling in a playoff.  He is also ranked No. 7 in the world at the moment, and Vegas has set the odds on him to win at 12-1 (second among all contestants).  Castro, who earned his way into the tournament by qualifying for the Champions Tour, is not on the board and currently sits tied for 42nd at +1.

Georgia Tech's four players in the tournament is tied for the most entrants from any institution.  There's another particular "university" in this state that also has four; I'll let you figure out who.
