Heard on the Range

Jay Haas Jr., caddying for his dad during last Saturday's third
round of the Masters, got a bloody nose on the front nine that
wouldn't stop bleeding. By the end of the round the 23-year-old's
jumpsuit was covered in blood.... Ian Poulter, the fashionable
28-year-old Englishman, wanted to set the record straight about a
rumor that Masters officials prevented him from dying his hair
green for the tournament. "That's not factual," said Poulter, who
wore pink for his Thursday round. "I have too much respect for my
hair and the club." ... Poulter's countryman, 26-year-old Paul
Casey, stayed loose before rounds by cranking the Bee Gees and
The Cult as he rolled down Magnolia Lane. At one point he and his
wife pounded on the dash so hard that they broke the CD
player.... When John Daly's drive at the 7th hole on Thursday hit
Donald Blincoe on the head and bounced back onto the fairway,
Blincoe, who's from the self-proclaimed bourbon capital of the
world (Bardstown, Ky.), got this advice from a grateful Daly: "Go
get yourself a whiskey or something." ... South Carolina football
coach Lou Holtz was spotted in the clubhouse in his green jacket.
Asked about his Augusta membership, Holtz joked, "We try to keep
it a secret." ... Kevin Hall, a senior at Ohio State, last week
became the first deaf player to win a major college tournament,
taking the Marshall Invitational in Huntingdon, W.Va.
