Two good scores, two bad shirts

Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia played just one group apart Thursday and were only one shot apart on the leaderboard at the Masters.

That wasn't terribly confusing, though their shirts were.

Viewers around the country had to be doing double takes as the cameras switched between the two players as they battled for the lead in the late afternoon on the back nine. That's because both were wearing the same garish shirt, color and all.

"Well, we are not wearing the same outfit because we want to," Johnson said. "This is Adidas; they script our clothing this week. We are wearing the same outfit because they told us to."

The shirts were partly striped and an acid shade of green. From a distance, it was hard to tell which player was which.

Whatever they looked like, the shirts seemed to work. Garcia shot a 66 to tie for the lead, while Johnson was a shot back at 67.

Johnson was asked if he would like to wear something on Sunday that moderator Tom Nelson - an Augusta member - was wearing in the interview room. That, too, comes in green and is put over the shoulders of the Masters champion.

"I would love to," Johnson said, laughing.
