Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks
The Masters began today and the field is wide open. So who will win? This British golf fan bet the house on Rory McIlroy because the Danish pastry he purchased looks like the Irish golfer. See the photo above and judge for yourself. In the meantime, McIlroy's fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki, is in the news after dyeing her hair pink for yesterday's Par 3 tournament at Augusta National.
Jose Abreu went deep twice on Tuesday but his most impressive effort was one that went foul. The White Sox slugger tore the cover off the ball, literally, which is something I've only seen Robert Redford pull off in The Natural.

It's shocking that a Twitter account called "Ass Pics and Vines" would get something wrong, but the nude photo it posted was not Lakers guard Nick Young and Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, as it orginally claimed.

My friends at LoudMouth Golf, the company responsible for John Daly's amazing pants, have given me three pairs of "Augusta Magic" shorts from their brand new Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. As you know, Loudmouth is "the most fun you can have with your pants on!" As for the giveaway, I will send a pair of shorts to the 15th, 30th and 45th person who emails me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the Australian model featured in yesterday's P.M. Clicks. Please make the subject line "Loudmouth," and, of course, enjoy the Masters.
Update (10:41 a.m.): I will only accept one email per person. But great effort to the those who have sent me 20 emails hoping to win.
Update (11:10 a.m.): Contest is closed. More giveaways to come. Thanks for playing!
