It looks like after melting down in the final round of The Masters, Rory 22 year old Rory McIlroy apparently tweeted the above picture. If you can’t tell or are just simple, he’s housing a bottle of Jagermeister. The picture has since been removed. C’mon Rory. Act your age bro.

Thank God it’s Friday. It’s been along week for this guy. Today I’m getting my windshield replaced on my car. It’s only like 6 months over due, but hey better late than never. I’m so sick of this god-damned weather. Everyday the chances of rain changes. Monday 20%, Wednesday 40%, Friday 50%. Am I asking too much? Is some sunshine out of the question? If it rains tomorrow, I’m going to ROAST.

Trying to play a course called Stonewater this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for me. The theme of the year has been wet and I’m hoping to buck the trend. I think I’ve played like 4-6 rounds so far this year and only one of said rounds has been dry. I love Ohio and all, but this needs to change. Southern Ohio is all blooming and warm, but we’re still gray and gloomy in Northeast Ohio. Sweet.

The golf tournament of all golf tournaments, The Masters. It’s finally here!

Day 1 made me incredibly depressed. Alvaro Quiros, who is my age and Rory McIlroy, who is twenty fucking one, are in the lead. Sigh. Anyway on to the action…

A Cuban Cohiba? Why yes, I'll take one of those for my victory cigar!

Conichiwa golf fans, time for everyone’s favorite segment, the picks.

This week, we’re adding our latest correspondent, JayV to the running, and while it might seem dickish to give him last place points so late in the game, if anyone can conjure up the minor miracle it’ll take to unseat yours truly, it’s Jay.

And while we’re welcoming Jay, I’d also like to point out the incredible feat achieved by our very own Schneider.  This week, the impossible was proven possible as Mr. Schneider managed to miss a cut in an event without a cut.  Shit like that doesn’t happen everyday, my pretties, and honestly, my belief in the supernatural has been reinforced.  It’s not everyday that you get to witness the hand of God in action, so savor the flavor.

Anyways…here are the current standings.

  1. Savant096 – 257
  2. Lefty – 476
  3. AC – 529
  4. Schneider – 629
  5. Tips – 650
  6. Old man penna – 713
  7. JayV – 713

Now onto the picks… (more…)

I’m not about to disparage a guy who just won a major by seven strokes.  Period.  Louis Oosthuizen was impressive as fuck and there are no qualifiers to that statement.

That said, I’m not about to wax poetic about a guy who built his lead thanks to two favorable weather draws that simply outlasted a field that seemed wholly content to cash their overly large runner up checks and get to tell people they’re good because they finished top 5 in a major.  There’s no way around it, yesterday’s golf coverage was boring, just because there wasn’t anyone catching Oosthuizen.  So, instead of doing some big long recap, we’ll just do some winner/loser type thing, k?

Winners:

Oosthuizen: Of course.  You don’t win a major by 7 strokes unless you’re a badass and the Euro Tour stalwart might just be that badass.  Or he could be a total fluke.  Hell, I thought Zach Johnson was a fluke after he won the Masters, but I’ve been proven quite wrong by that so maybe Shrek is the Euro Tour’s new ZJ.

Henrik Stenson: Made a charge and wasn’t a douchebag about it, unlike a certain someone who’s name rhymes with Maul Macey.

Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler: McIlroy finished tied for 3rd while Fowler was a few shots off his pace finishing tied for 14th with a logjam of extremely talented players.  Of course, these finishes aren’t notable in and of themselves, but when you consider that Rory shot a 2nd round 80 to best Fowler’s opening round 79 well, that’s some gumption and good shootin’ to get back to where they finished.  Good show, young’ns.

Yours truly took the day off of work to relax and watch the second round of The Open. Because I was conned into playing power hour and some sort of drinking Yahtzee game late last night, I slept thru my intended start time this morning. Unfortunately for me, all of the “best” golf was played then and, after a hearty American breakfast (2 eggs over easy, bacon, homefries, and a short stack), I’ve been left with nothing more than slow golf, wind delays and terrible ESPN coverage. Hey, at least it’s better than sitting in the office!

The early group was rewarded with favorable weather -a little rain and little to no wind – by British Open standards . Most took advantage and posted low numbers that will certainly put them in a great position going into the weekend. As I write this, Louis Oosthuizen is your clubhouse leader at -12, which is five strokes ahead of the next group of players. The goofy looking South African went 65, 67 in his first two rounds, respectively, and I’m sure is enjoying himself watching the circus that’s taken place this afternoon. A few other players who also took advantage of the good weather this morning include Mark Calcavecchia, Paul Casey, Tom Lehman, Greame McDowell, and Miguel Angel Jimenez. Casey, specifically, had a stellar round going but tripled the 17th and settled with a 3-under, 69. (more…)
