The Masters

Yessir, the band is back together. Hell, we even picked up a new member. All the hype, drama, and controversy surrounding the 2013 Masters tournament was too much to keep us away. But we’ll get to all that later. All you need to know is that none of us played Augusta this past weekend, which means we’re kicking off our 2014 Masters campaign!

A lot happened this weekend at Augusta, but let me first and foremost congratulate Adam Scott. Scott has been one hell of a Tour player for a long time now and the only reason it’s taken him this long to win his first big one is that dreaded flatstick. So it’s only fitting that he won this tournament with clutch putting. His always impressive ball-striking kept him in the mix, but it was his putting that earned him the prestigious green jacket.

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…



If you watched the Masters, you probably saw two tournaments rolled into one.  There was the biggun, of course, but then there was the shootout being staged by the game’s two best players at a course that fits them both to a T.

And what we got was sheer madness.

I’m not going to wax poetic for too long, as there’s a lot been said already by writers far more capable and qualified than I, but when these two get together now, it’s must see TV.

Tiger is great and is only getting better while Phil is as rock-solid as he’s ever been and has the Ferrarri-like, high-end horsepower that Tiger seems to be lacking post-surgery.  Whatever it is, these two put on an absolute clinic, and before you knock Phil for not coming through and blowing a very realistic shot at 63 to win, just consider how much that is to ask.

While this wasn’t the main event, it was an undercard that stole the show.


Holy hell was that awesome.

Congrats, Angel…you’ve now beaten two of the hardest courses in America.  Helluva win.


Cabrera vs. Perry…a heavyweight battle.

But you know Chad Campbell, Furyk, and Stricker will be around.  And look at the guys lurking at -4…Tiger, Phil, Nick Watney, Sean O’Hair, Hunter Mahan, Anthony Kim and Stephen Ames.

If you miss tomorrow, you’re a fool.


Day 2 of the Masters is now over, and we are coming up on moving day. Unfortunately for some like The Big Easy the tournament ended early, but for others, like Anthony Kim, it was a historic day.  Anthony shot an amazing 11 birdies today to one up Tom Watson for the most birdies in a single round at The Masters, which was 10. We saw some amazing play from Anthony and from Kenny Perry this afternoon.

I especially enjoyed the discourse between Kenny Perry and his caddie Fred Sanders at the 18th. Kenny was pretty torn between his 9 iron and his 8 iron. Thinking that the 9 iron might be too much but that the 8th might hit the false front and role back down. Fred reaffirmed the choice without any hesitation, and Kenny stepped up and struck it to within a few feet of the hole, impressive as hell. (more…)
