Hey golf fans, it’s that time of year again. Herman Williams here bringing you my annual sneak peek at the
2013 Masters practice rounds so sit back enjoy I’ll be here all day
filming we’re right here at the front gate walking in right now Obviously here at the range first thing in the morning; it’s about 7:15 they open the gates at 7am thats Webb Simpson right there walking
from the practice tee i guess he’s gonna head over to the golf course Rickie Fowler here Mark O’Meara just
been on the range for a couple minutes right now watch a few these early guys warm up.
this is O’Meara hitting some wedges. just watch a look at this. This is about 75 yards and that’s the worst shot he’s hit. They’re like
six or eight feet and he’s only hit like four shots this morning. Sooo guess where we are. First tee. Last
year’s champ Bubba Watson right there ready to go I didn’t see him warm up at the range. I
think he just snuck in here real quick and got up to the first tee. He’s gonna play with Ricky I don’t know whether he really warmed up or not i think he’s just gonna hop out there and crank that pink driver first thing and get the show on the road I’m gonna slow mo all the videos of the golf
swings so the audio might kick out when we go to slow motion but I think it gives you some cool detail
on this morning’s swings so that’s a nice shot. of course it’s a big hit started at the bunker on the right and just faded it a little bit out in the middle of the
fairway It’s … right at 8 a.m. right now
it’s so maybe sixty degrees started out in the fifties first thing so maybe sun’s out. it’s going to be a great day this is Ricky Fowler pound-for-pound he’s one of the longer hitters
out there A good ball for him too. Just up to right, right-center so there you go the 2013 Masters practice rounds have begun. first two guys on the golf course are
over the 10th tee this is hunter mahan we’re kinda bouncing around here real quick.
They’re not really a lotta guys here early this morning. nobody at the range so I just came
over to the golf course looks like hunter is gonna go off of hole number ten and maybe just as a single. I don’t see anybody else ready to go so yeah he’s got it. of here with the
fairway wood Hole 10 is a really hard dog leg to the
left gotta start this golf ball far left. you can see the tree limbs sticking out right over there on the left Of course everybody remembers when Rory McIlroy found the trees there but started way down the left side keep it hooking don’t know if he hooked that enough but it’s still a good shot up all right we’re back over at the first
tee we’ve got Angel Cabrera here former Masters Champion Let’s see who he is going to play with this morning and none of this stuff is scripted. they don’t have actual tee times the guys at first tee really don’t even
know who’s gonna come or when they’re gonna tee off. just kinda spur of the
moment excited to have Jose Maria Olazabal with
them source watched a prayer hitters tee shot obviously aiming left and planning for a cut okay that’s smashed. that’s actually over the bunker it’s not that warm at this point ok that’s a 320 yard carry over that bunker it looks like there’s no room to do it from
the Tee Jose Maria joked about needing to use the ladies tees to catch up with that He is a former Masters champion also He’s swinging pretty well right here this is a mouthful this is Gonzalo Fernandez Castano I can’t keep from Spain also up big international contingency here at Augusta every year. see what he does here that’s a beautiful flight down the left side group cut a little more than he wanted to but still ok all rights we’ve got a few groups on a
golf course. That guy doesn’t need an introduction got Tom Watson right here Tom is sixty-three years young still
hits it probably as good as he ever did obviously a polite guy hamming it up with the crowd. this is Russell Henley gonna play with Tom. actually a Macon Georgia
native I guess he went to University of Georgia graduated there
won his first PGA Tour appearance or as a PGA Tour member at the Sony Open this is his first Masters. He hammered that
out there pretty nicely group of up this is Nathan Smith he is
actually a he’s a four-time mid-amateur champion and of course that qualifies
for the master so is playing in his fourth masters with he certainly
dominates amateur golf in his age group nice ball right straight down the center
are quite as long as some nice super long young bucks that hang out on the
tour i’d still a plenty good shot out there and now
tom is gonna hit his tee shot and notice the length of his backswing. it hasn’t shortened up over the years at all still got some nice for a little bit beyond parallel top you can see that leave us to lash
out sprayed spread fairway of credit right there beside Nathan
Smith ask not quite as long as Russell Henley come
up to the hill girl but for other up care next group fears looks like
we’ve got to Kevin Streelman up and that scott Piercy scary there’s a
guy in the green shirt with plaid pants got so his first Masters is a RBC Canadian Open
champion a in the rear we’ve got Martin Kaymer from Germany big guy long-haired so now we’ve got those three good wait for the fair way to clear out here
okay I bernard langer the fourth player so that’s pretty strong group bernard’s
Masters champ tearing it up out on the senior tour here for a few years up good Looks like Bernhard is gonna lead the group ok test his fitness i think is 56 or close to that age looks like he’s 35 still swinging really well gonna left-center their up trying to get up on a flat Park that’s
probably the smallest 4:45 so the tee shots average anywhere from
hitting can face the hill which would leave 180 19
him to hold the cast get up on a flat will be 160 course got Angel Cabrera
probably a fair Work throw to the green after flying Bunker
says Martin Kaymer sorta below bullet to the left there my to have
better as far as he hits a diabetic at a car that and tackle but it’s still up field a bit
skeptical trip plenty safe but a betty has to worry
about market through the fairway over their
fees start our side too much says Kevin Streelman up it’s been a regular here for a few years
in a row now athleticism that set up look how straight his spine is. he gets it right to parallel topping see how all these guys
aim a little left. the right handed guys aim down the left side if you look where their feet points to
write down the left rely on group double-crossed him so they’re
usually a min left right hit a little bit or cut back to the center every now and then you pay the penalty
for quite get a ride finest scott Piercy much that this is
first Masters think this year he shot think they said I was looking in the
guidebook to give it a shot 61 at the Phoenix Open here 2013 so obviously he’s got some game but shorter backswing couple these other
guys up but california that’s actually the best
driving group squatters on a hill sure car would get up there
but he didn’t quite catch solid caricom moving quick here this is John Senden from Australia I like up of colour trucks of you know so many talk as we’ve
got out here on the tour now speaking of which Nicolas Colsaerts hear
from Belgium Cesar to tall athletic European guys here they can move it no
to set up on the right side the toybox a min a little bit left the
body complain that little bit of a cut just boomed big high ball half learn alright though it’s kinda
cutting allotted yeah it’s over by the people when go get some answers on the Tee now of on the short sleeve so that’s a TJ Vogel of being he played for the University of Florida
he’s a US Public Links Championship and then in the sweater Steven Fox 2012 US
Amateur champ place for the university to see slide
vocals gonna go first here talk about fitness like these guys not
an ounce of fat on them think these guys are both 22 yellows couple it up the hill right they’re nice
and straight pretty safe the ball good spice it up but he doesn’t worry do it
get there from the crowds for the first time in this event just one pretty someone down there and have a
good time good freedom and Stephen Spanish there good guys don’t look like they have backbones they can turn so far I saw the ball up the middle so they’re
often run-up Akosua got in this group it’s easy
figure these things out with the kiddies this is Thomas Bjorn or from Denmark he’s kinda been resurgence in his career
here last few years from working hard on his game trying to get things back
together right foot switch their EC but he still got this ball up the hill
good cactus what they’re not so happy with
that maybe this is david lamb from England dupes i think is gotta cutting too much good and also from 10 Denmark this is a store
Bjorn Olson see setting up well down the left side can’t tell through the viewfinder but I
think that would like of players well I think really all through this get another hit
quite likely won’t easily a little bit did FX right Croucher Costa Rica as a pro
like a redo I’ll but anyway go a long way autographed
play here we’ve got our from japan this is
here UK Fujita four-time winner on the Japanese tour Japan tour 43 years old stocky muscular build along at the toxic assets are you a
slow-motion you can tell pause store just sits there to look at a
bar fight Yap and Fujita at age 43 we jump from there
to review a chicago won a younger players he’s only 21 a believer now playing in his fifth
Masters his/her 12 wins International House
collagen in the guidebook to Cassie for his career look like so for another
film in a few these events he’s actually hitting a 3-wood appears to
have grown a little bit I think he was just 5 730 something pounds couple years
ago but still not huge is 59 I think this a 150 eighties of the wrong with religiously
Tanaka through the Fair where the Parkers that’s right up just cannon from the
bunker on the right side good are howard got to ask as pro
recognize what everybody David Toms it’s got to be markers out they’ve got
the markers up from thirty not many the guys are using it but yes on joke that look go ahead tee off a little
bit more upfront like this old buddy 02 will be long enough later on in the week
in and David’s playing with Lucas Glover here
the 2009 US Open champion and know that exception I think that
gives at least 25 your exemption to the Masters so he’s probably playing on this
US Open exception will discover long arse you see that sort down cutting move
his downswing obviously low leverage in swing on
traffic and motor it out there are removed from here we’re gonna go
over to work just walk around Frank Oct here for on our services are the
18th green this is actually Mark O’Mara and it looks like under my hand caught
up with them this morning to them just talkin strategies that supports you know
they’ve actually you know there those guys were playing a
singles I spent over two and a half hours on the back nine so tell us how
much their study in thing parts actually get teasing the
great if you look closely out there parties were the a whole occasion
scrappy apart this is Justin Rose we’ve moved
back over to the first tee we have a rare face on view shot. it’s kinda hard to get those with the crowds our now moving over the system putting
green watchin VJ dual putting here got a couple marquee players appear Steve Stricker
got matt Kutcher in the background stays the a few putts here I think what we’ll
do after do the putting green stuff here will march on the golf course little bit get
some more video gonna try to head down to number three week using a good camera
angles there actual play together in these groups but
I’ll golf course and find some of these guys. Ok as promised here we are number three tee and that’s Charl Schwartzel and Richard Sterne walking up so
we’ve actually got your 2011 champion for watch charl tee off here. I
butchered his name a couple years ago didn’t even know his name when in the tournament I don’t think
there’s a better swing out here smoothies it can be pulsed laser dead
straight there’s just no wasted movement anything
he’s doing fall going now ago Richard another really good swinger manage two guys are just technicians in
the way this morning see how steady their bodies are just no
up-and-down movement just really simple swings they’re both hitting driver on this hole is 350
there’s not a ton a room up there but to being fitted into play up there good by the camp good alright so behind them coming up here on
earth roof got Rory McIlroy be affect behind him go Lee Westwood they’ve paired up together
here source turning into a really nice afternoon now
the temperatures in the seventies Rory here with a fairway wood years we
mention the souls not all along sconce or start a little stinker ish
looking shot they’re kinda down the right pretty straight field likely drawn up now lease gonna go with driver slightly over all f’s the toybox still ever try to fit a straight baller little
mariel shot is drawing there a little down the left side very nice I guess Rory is going to reload here with driver will figure out which one he would rather play get two chances to watch this smooth
swing watch cut down our squad and that pic separation between sips shores as we
get so much power you know these guys look a lot bigger on
television but when you see in person they’re all really lame really don’t want this pic worries just
pretty standard size guide dark are removed up now from my number
three we’ve gone up to 18 it gets so crowded out
here have a hard time finding anywhere I can get good vantage points
do any film saw on the back of 18 tee box right here are so ago Vijay and Stricker they were paired up
together VJ gonna tee off first here it’s a huge hit that’s a laser work I wrong overall I it’s as beautiful as I’ve seen him of
the two you’ve probably on any holiday just looks like a sidewalk working down
there being just get a feeling see the Bunkers are way down in the background other their within reach but they’re a
long way down there but it just looks so narrow that shoot it’s probably 250 yards to put 10 feet
wide to get down through the chute fairway on a lot stricter here but shorter backswing and other guys not
quite as much wrist hinge he leaned on that one kind of little extra umph from the bottom
that’s why I’m guessing it’s so far right up there was featured a your bus left about are thought to try
something different for this year haven’t done this before this number
sixty I see task and the crowds are alongside hola 16 grains Bo Van Pelt group Cup role in some parts but what I want to
bring it was so shots gasket the ball every group skip shots across fired first amatures photo fucks crouched countdown for this way accompli
the Cal first so let’s listen in on the small all a guide gonna try to get his first floor the
grain would all skipped it almost to front of green program three feet short that’s pretty
cool here the crowd roaring all day long yeah here or the background right there
that was from 16 to suffer or even fairly approach shot on number seven and
courses Lee Westwood same hole just plan their
way into seven sick a complete their fronts practice
rounds are gonna move from here folks back up
to the top of the hill it’s rumored Tiger Woods has been on the range can actually I’m in the wrong place I
was ready for him at number one tee and he’s got a bypass us here and run to number 10 he told us he was going to one but chose not to we’ve been waiting for this all day it’s actually 3:30 in the afternoon nobody thought Tiger would play this late.
Dustin Johnson teeing off on number 10 first Now we’ve got Tiger Woods. what everybody has been waiting for. the crowds have tripled out here now for Tiger you’re gonna start running solid swing fairway wood so what I go we’ve got
Dustin Johnson and then thats Tian LingGuan that’s with them amateur player from China a player from China and I don’t know
what you were doing when you were fourteen years old but Tian is playing in the Masters
at the age fourteen i won asia-pacific Amateur Championship and his youngest ever to play in the
seventy-seven years at the Masters Dustin shots and and then here’s channeling Guan in 14 and half years old
actually outgrow these guys here driver they were in fairway woods off the tee because smooth at swingers that’s a
practice on their which identical to his regular swing
think it was a 18 under par the Junior World Golf
Championships so is he fills out gets older bigger it say about a better look
L watch out perfect this one works
obviously it is ten years old is he fills out gets a
little stronger have links to compete with these guys he’s barely get to
gaming certain issue this course all remember again good happens for the best approach shot
to the day yeah closer than those two guys hit it so I mean I think you know i think is
secrecy knows how to score here we’ve got tiger on number 11 gets
the crowds are tremendous out here just running around
the golf course trying to follow this group they’re bigger than any crowds all
based on risk I have enough fine reckon get camera angle sets iron shot approach to # 11 for Tiger up have moved up they have got to get four
holes in advance those guys find a spot so we’re now on 15 tee standing right behind the back of the tee box under the TV tower think we’ve got DA points here nice morning zip that right down the middle
fifteen is a par-5 it is a semi blind tee shot you can’t see what you hit to he made a joke “there’s the tree he was aiming at” okay so this is actually Jason Day in yellow it’s Nick Watney up long free swing Jason is kinda known as pretty long
hitter as well but I guess all these guys are what am i
sayin there they are all younger more athletic bigger taller faster ok okay come on we’ve all been waiting for
a final I got a good location gonna clear angle good camera angle for
this. We’ve got Tiger Woods and his group come into the 15th tee it’s getting dark it’s later
in the day many others to play at daylight but its its late for this time today. to be
playing golf we’ve got down the line view Tiger Woods 15th hole par 5 for I’ll just
shut up and let you watch this one striped over-the-hill see the little twirl there he likes that. grabbed the tee and we’re outta here go now Tian Ling guan I think I read where obvious it is aged just 14 and a half I
mean great player but I think he’s he drives the ball around 250 – 260 so his probably giving up fifty yards to most these guys are x’s a little bit
flattish sorta backswing but keeps on the same plane coming through as a
beautiful ball for us right down the center very straight at looks extremely long
but his plan to go as adjusted for miles you measure be a 14-play with Dustin
Johnson Tiger Woods are should be prolonged Irwan to the day
here a couple years ago every show to watch
dusted would like it when about 320 in the air so material yup as project outcast alright a little draw past Tiger alright was get close to the end of our
day I thought it leave it was for the interesting parting shot that’s eleven fairway mowers st going down the fairway so that’s it for the 2013 Masters
practice rounds hope you enjoyed it look for links down below to some of the individual pros golf swings

  1. its not his video, he is just pretending hes there because hes talking in there swings and ive seen this video before, but good commentary

  2. Cam, I assure you this is my video. These are practice rounds, not tournament rounds so film & commentary are ok on these days. If you've seen it somewhere else, it is only because YouTube videos can be linked and embedded on other sites. Thanks for watching. – Herman

  3. nice video man. What you need to do though is edit the slow mo then just render that video and then commentate over it. Just a thought if you want to talk during the slow mo

  4. Herman, it would be great if you showed a swing at regular speed with sound and then the slow motion with out sound. Just a suggestion

  5. This was a sweet video..the range at the beginning was pretty interesting haha, getting to see pros warm up. Anyways, If you guys are ever in need of a community to talk about stuff like this, catch up on golf news/reviews, etc., visit "bunkersparadise (dot com)"

  6. That was awesome Herm thank you! I'll be at the 2014 practice rounds (Wednesday) if I see you i'll stop and say hello!

    Thanks again – can't wait for it to come

  7. Chris, It would be nice to be able to do both, but the original swing footage is filmed in slow motion except for parts you see at normal speed.

  8. When I read golf swing secrets “kaha shocking guide” (Google), I uncovered how detailed it explains the proper way of performing a golf swing. The book is based off of the swing model of all tour pros put together. I have read 1/2 of this book and the ideas are great. I`ve scored Three straight low 80s rounds right after reading this book.
