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…



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…)

Well, if you picked Tim Clark this week, it’s not too late to change your pick… He just won the Par 3 Tournament. There has never been a player who has won the Par 3 and the big show in the same weekend. Clark finished -5 with an ace mixed in.  Jack Newman and Jose Maria Olazabal finished T2/-3.


stevewilsonmid-amSteve Wilson is probably not a name you’ve heard unless you’ve gone through the field for the Masters this week. Steve is one of the select few amateurs to be invited to Augusta National this year as a reward for his outstanding match play victory at the Mid-Amateur tournament which took place at River Hills Country Club in Milwaukee.  His dominating 5-and-4 victory over his competitor Todd Mitchell earned him 15 practice rounds and a chance for an inconceivable dream of winning one of the most distinguished tournaments in golf.


Like my fellow Tuna contributors, I went back and forth between a few players before choosing Woods this week. A lot of “experts” and enthusiasts think that picking Woods to win is the easy decision simply because he’s “Tiger-freaking Woods”. Although that makes sense and is a pretty good argument, it goes a little deeper than that for my rationalization. (more…)

This is unreal. I can say that I have never struggled this much over a pick before. Normally I’m pretty decisive, but the allure of the Masters is really getting the best of me. (Good thing I’m not playing, huh?) I narrowed my picks down to three players: Tiger Woods, Padraig Harrington, and Geoff Ogilvy.
