Tweets of the Day: Thursday at the 2011 Masters

Rory-McIlroy_298x240 Christina Kim, LPGA golfer: Apparently Phil brought out the wrong one of the two drivers today. Whoops. More from Christina: Wow. Really liking the transformation in @TigerWoods' swing all of a sudden. Looks very.... Tigeresque in my opinion Rory McIlory, Pro golfer: Thanks to @winmcmurry for the tweets I've had today comparing me to a Victorian women! Won't be getting an interview anytime soon!! ;) More from Rory, one of Time Magazine’s 140 best on Twitter: Thanks for all the messages today! Such a great start to the tournament but still a very long way to go! Steve Elling, CBSSports.com:  Wow, Phil's purple shirt certainly matches nicely with that forest of azealeas he just hit his sideways drive into on No. 13. Alan Shipnuck, Sports Illustrated: It's dehumanizing to have to hide in a bathroom stall in Amen Corner to check email/voice mail/Twitter/Facebook. Or so I've heard. Dan Jenkins, Golf Digest: One of the secrets to McIlroy's success may be his short haircut. He no longer looks like Barbara Streisand Paul Mahoney, European golf writer: Fowler dressed head to toe in Augusta green. Looks like a petrol attendant. +1 thru 10. Running out of gas? Lawrence Donegan, The Guardian (UK):  Slow play = disrepect to others in the group. McIlroy/Fowler rolling their eyes and smiling at the antics of Day. Gary Van Sickle, Sports Illustrated: Pretty sure Luke Donald isn't going to WD from Masters because of Par 3 jinx. Dumber than SI jinx. Less dumb than hit-by-truck jinx. Norm MacDonald: Comedian Masters has begun.Phil Mickelson paired with Geoff Ogilvy and Peter Uihlein. John Daly paired with Jack Daniels and Jim Beam. Jhonny Vegas, Pro golfer:  Day 1 of the Masters. Excited and ready to play. Dia 1 del Masters. Muy emocionado y listo para jugar. Here we go. Aqui Vamos.
