It is very exciting that we have a native of Central New York competing in golf's most prestigious major, The Masters. Derek Bard is a graduate of New Hartford High School and currently attends The University of Virginia. If you want to follow every shot of Derek's tournament run you can do it virtually.

One of the coolest features on The Masters website is the tracking application. You can pick any of your favorite golfers and follow their progress shot by shot. All you have to do from the home page at the top of the site is click 'Track.' Then simply search Derek's name and you can click the star to make sure you favorite him. After two holes on Thursday, Bard was -1. Good luck and keep it up Derek. We're all rooting for you.
