Masters Golf Tournament 2011: Preview Of Former Yellow Jacket Stewart Cink

Former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Stewart Cink will hit the links on Thursday at the 2011 Masters. The 1995 Tech graduate joined the PGA Tour in 1997 and will be looking to break a streak of missing the cut at the Masters the past two years. 

Cink's best result at the Masters was in 2008 when he tied for third with Brandt Snedeker. Trevor Immelman beat out Tiger Woods for the title. The Huntsville, Alabama native shot -4 and won $435,000. He has one other top 10 finish at Augusta in 2006, but has failed to make the cut for two consecutive years. 

While Cink has compiled 13 professional wins and 6 on the PGA Tour, his career highlight definitely came on in 2009 at The Open Championship at Turnberry. He overcame a 3-shot deficit heading into Sunday and ended Tom Watson's run in a playoff to win the Claret Jug. 

Cink has been a regular on the United States national team. He has played for four Presidents Cups, one WGC-World Cup, and been on the Ryder Cup team five consecutive times. 

Bodog.com has Cink, the 59th ranked player in the world, as a long shot to win at 100/1 odds.
