Lookin' great in Green

10) Bubbbbbbbbbba! What a champion. Could anyone look better in green today than Bubba Watson? For someone who had never finished better than T-20 at Augusta in his three previous starts people might have been wondering how it happened? Watson is an artist and Augusta National is the best place for someone like him to go to work. You have to have imagination and you must have guts, it’s no secret why another artist, Phil Mickelson also came close to his 4th green jacket. It was great to see Watson win as he has a brand new baby boy to go home and celebrate with. Can’t wait for what the Golf Boys will do with this one!

11) It was almost a repeat for the South African nation. When you think of the PGA Tour and you look at how many South African’s hold their PGA Tour cards right now, six should come to mind (Oost, Charl, Ernie, Clark, Goose & Mulroy). For this place to have won two majors in the last two years and to have almost captured a third and second green jacket in a row it’s amazing. Louis comes from a farm, I mean straight up farm, when he won the Open Championship last year he treated himself to a tractor (see below).  These guys are good, look out for them to contend in every major this year. Louis and Charl’s swings are something spectacular.

She thinks my tractors sexy!

12) How about being low Am at Augusta National? Patrick Cantalay doesn’t mind but it certainly didn’t come easy. Pretty nice scorecard the #1 amateur in the world had yesteday check this thing out! 100% awesome.

Six par, two eagles, and a nine!

13) Back on the Louis train here… never in my life have I seen a shot like Oost hit on #2 at Augusta. Simply ridiculous. It might have been the purest looking swing I’ve ever seen and for him to dunk it from way out there to a tucked right pin behind a bunker just wow, how about an Albatross at the Masters to get your round going! Last person do to that was Gene Sarazen in 1935! Little piece of  history for Louis and I still can’t believe he threw the ball away. To the random fan who caught that, please mail it back to him! 

14) Number 16 was a popular hole yesterday, for hole in ones. Bo Van Pelt dunked a beauty followed not long after by Adam Scott. There’s only been three years including this one in the history of the Masters of double hole in ones. So sweet and both managed to post very great Sunday rounds.

Next year Freddy... Remember 1992?

15) I’m not sure what was more upsetting for me this weekend… Freddy not winning or having to PVR the last hour of the final round due to Easter Dinner. The Silver Fox continues to impress and would it ever be legendary if he could pull through for us one of these years.  Couples continues to tease us with his stellar play at Augusta year in and year out, one of these times I swear he’s going to do it and it’s going to be more legendary than Nicklaus’ 1986 Masters win. If it happens I’m flying straight to Alabama and celebrating.

At least he can make contact kicking it

16)It’s taken me a long time to write about that guy in the Sunday red shirt. Oh yeah,what’s his name again? Oh right Tiger Woods. What a horrendous display of ball striking this week and what really got me riled up even more was the amount of attention Woods pulled in at Augusta by “Live From” and everything else. Listen, the guy couldn’t find a fairway  200 yards wide and his iron play was atrocious. I can’t believe I hopped on the bandwagon so quick and picked him for this week. He continues to fascinate me and I’m not sure when we will ever see a consistent Tiger Woods again. How do you lead fairways and GIR’S in your past two starts and then do this at Augusta?  If you’re confused, join the club.

17) If anyone is ever going to pick Sergio Garcia ever again in a major don’t even think about it.  What professional golfer quotes “I’m not good enough to win a major” to the press. All I can say right now is, wow, if you don’t believe you can win a major what are you doing out on the PGA Tour? You’re better than this Sergio.

Highly entertaining stuff

 

18) The Masters is over… only 365 days until next year. Start the countdown. Hopefully Phil Mickelson doesn’t take a triple again next year in the final round. The two right-handed shots were entertaining. It might have been the all-beige outfit curse?
