FEELING GREEN: Golf Channel’s Steve Sands noted Rice was at Augusta National yesterday and played a practice round with Phil Mickelson and his manager. Following the round, Rice “was on the practice facility wearing the green jacket … we believe for the very first time in public” (“Golf Central Pregame,” Golf Channel, 4/7). Mickelson indicated Rice asked "questions about the course while he was more interested in asking her about countries and business.” Golf Channel's Holly Sonders said Mickelson “had high praise for her golf game, saying that she is a ‘phenomenal putter’” (“Morning Drive,” Golf Channel, 4/8).
