Yesterday was a gray and drizzly lake at Callaway Gardens. The women had decent conditions first thing, and this was reflected in the scores. As The day went on conditions deteriorated.
Jon Travers was sporting an NFL style neck brace to stop his head from snapping back too far. While this device looks great, Robin Lake got the best of him.
Another big surprise out in the prelims was Nick Parsons. He looked great starting out but took a much bigger turn out of 4 than what was neccesary. A little lean lock and he popped the handle just in time to save his own life.
Ofcourse the big story of the day in our camp was Chris Rossi. After qualifying in the last chance event last weekend by running 3@41, Rossi set the score to beat with 3@39. Aaron Larkin came close with a six-no-continue score, but no one else saw the end of the course at 38.
You cant count out the top three seeds though. Parrish, Jamie and Will are all skiin extremely well right now. In an event like the Masters, a lot of strategy comes into play. Cold and rainy with a cut half way down 38, the top guys knew what they needed in order to ski on Sunday. Don't expect the 5 guys in the finals to post scores on the 38 loop.
More updates to come as we get underway this morning at the 50th Masters Water Ski Tournament!!
