Week of the young guns
Last week was the week of the young guns, you could righly say.

The 2007 Masters hasn’t kept to the script.
Tiger Woods is struggling, some five or six shots of the pace after following his bogey, bogey finish on Thursday with a second-round bogey start on Friday.
And he’s probably the best off of all the big guns.
Vijay Singh shared 15th place with Woods after the first round, but besides Adam Scott who was tied for 19th place, none of other top 10 stars featured in the top 20, including Phil Mickelson, the defending champion and winner of two of the last three Masters.
Ernie Els had an especially disastrous opening round, his 78 putting him 20-odd places from the bottom of the field and just two shots better than 70-year-old Gary Player, who is playing in his 50th Masters.
So what does all this mean?
Is Justin Rose, who opened with a brilliant 69, or one of a number of talented Europeans like Henrik Stenson going to break the 7-year European majors drought?
Or are one of the USA’s ambitious Young Turks like Brett Wetterich, who matched Rose, or Charles Howell going to snatch the Green Jacket away from the usual suspects.
Or, on the other hand, is there going to be a a massive weekend broadside from the currently spiked big guns that will see the likes of Woods and Mickelson come roaring back?
You tell us. And quickly before the question is answered on Sunday
