**Golf Central Live From the Masters continues Wednesday at 9 a.m. ET on Golf Channel.**

On anticipated weather conditions on Thursday-Friday at the Masters
David Duval – “If somebody goes out and manages to conquer this golf course over the first couple of days if this forecast and those winds hold up, you could see a lot of people chasing for second place.”
Frank Nobilo – “Because of the weather forecast, it might be an advantage to go off early [on Thursday].”

On Dustin Johnson
Duval – “When you have such prodigious length, you can back down and still play from spots that let you be aggressive… The way he’s playing, the confidence he has, he’s in a position and has that opportunity to have an intimidation factor like a Tiger Woods as Butch [Harmon] says.”

Rory McIlroy speaking with Golf Channel reporter Todd Lewis
Rory McIlroy – “It’s as good as I’ve felt coming into the Masters in terms of where my game is, where I am mentally. I feel like there’s not as much hype around it. It’s been a nice build up.”

McIlroy – “I definitely feel more comfortable with my putting at least going into this Masters versus last year. I feel like I have a real direction with where I want to go with my putting.”

McIlroy – “I’ve had three top-10s the last three years but I haven’t really been in contention. So internally that’s not good enough for me… If I go out and play the way that I know I can, hopefully I’ll slip into one of those greens jackets sooner rather than later.”
