Harrington's muddy woes

Mud, mud, and more mud. Squelch, squish, slop. That's what it was like on the spectator walkways yesterday.

One effect was to cause players to back off putts, as happened Padraig Harrington twice on the fourth green.

People were trying to tip-toe quietly to watch him, but every step caused a squidgy, squelchy noise.

Another little hazard to deal with -- as if battling former Masters champion Zach Johnson (pictured above) wasn't causing enough problems.
