Well, ladies and gentlemen, the 73rd Masters is well and truly under way and, after a first day during which more birdies were sunk than at the Annual Nebraska Pheasant Hunt, one question is on the lips of everyone ahead of day two - the course can't remain this welcoming all weekend... can it?
The big winners of the opening day then, aside from the course-side sun-tan lotion venders, were American trio Chad Campbell, Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan. Those three are separated by a single shot at the top of the leaderboard and showed more than enough to suggest they each have the talent to stay the course this weekend.
But there was cause for optimism among the game's more celebrated names too. Tiger Woods fired a steady 70 in his first major since an eight-month lay-off following knee surgery, Padraig Harrington kicked off his attempt to keep his "Paddy Slam" dreams alive with a 69, and European hopefuls Ross Fisher, Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Bernhard Langer are all firmly in the mix after round one.
Which all leads me to my first question of the day... who were your big winners and losers of the first round and where's your money going into day two? As always, I'd be honoured and delighted if you would send me your inner-most thoughts - preferably, but not necessarily exclusively, about golf more than anything else - via text on 81111 or on here, the weird and wonderful world of 606.
You know you want to...
