Golf Central Live From the Masters Notable Quotes
Friday, April 8 (8 a.m.-3 p.m. ET, early show)
Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Ga.

On the windy conditions on Friday at Augusta National Golf Club
David Duval – “This course is a beast right now. Absolute beast. The wind is really howling. It is hard.”

Duval – “This is something that we have never seen before, certainly not for three days. It makes it a battle from as soon as you step on the first tee until you are done and it wears the players out.”

On Jordan Spieth, first round leader and currently leading in the second round (included a double bogey on the fifth hole)
Rich Lerner – “A sigh of relief from the rest of the field that he is human.”

Arron Oberholser – “He is doing things inside himself and he is in a place inside his own brain that very few players in the history of this game can get themselves to or can take themselves to and then stay there. People call it the zone, call it whatever you will. He has the ability to call upon that when’s its needed and he’s called upon that this week.”

Brandel Chamblee – “I don’t think it is any coincidence that he shares the locker with Arnold Palmer.”

Duval – “In these big arenas, the world of golf is watching every move. That is when he seems to shine…it came to him at Augusta. It wasn’t lost in the luggage. It all arrived this week.”

On Ernie Els, recovering after a double-bogey 6 on the first hole to play 1-under on holes 2-18 during Friday’s second round (1-over par 73 on Friday, finishing at 9-over par)
Tripp Isenhour – “Remarkable, absolutely remarkable after what happened on the first hole yesterday and today. Just a gem of a human being and it just shows his character. We’ve all been there, it is really tough.”
