You could forgive Masters spectators for not having their minds on Colorado State alum Martin Laird when he takes to the tee box at 8:35 MT on Saturday morning. Laird, and his partner Scott Verplank, happen to be the pairing teeing off one group ahead of Tiger Woods, who himself happens to be paired with 2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel. Laird may just make a surprising run at the green jacket on Saturday, but if he does, it will be away from the watchful eye of CBS.
Laird finished the second round at +4, which was just one shot above the cutline, and he'll have to make his move early on Saturday. Verplank, who has one top 10 finish in Augusta on his resume, also will start the third round four over.
Here's the full time and pairing for Laird and Verplank:
8:35 a.m. MT: Martin Laird, Scott Verplank
