    Ok, I have to say in spite of my earlier feminist rant that I did enjoy the final round of the Master's today. I caught pieces of it in between gardening and grilling. Anyway, its always an exciting Sunday when Tiger is advancing and looks like he will win. I don't want to like the guy but he is such an amazing golfer he is always fun to watch and I find I just have to watch him. I was hoping that if an American did not win that one of the Aussies would, but I guess it all worked out ok.

    Now I am ready to hit the driving range. There is just so little time to fit everything in!

    No offense to the winner, but it is slightly more entertaining for the average viewer when well-known players win.

    It was painful to watch Rory self-destruct.


    But overall it was one of the more exciting final rounds in recent memory, given all the people so close/in-share of the lead right down to the end.

    Completely agree. It was an incredibly exciting Master's. To see Charl Schwartzel of South Africa birdie the last 4 holes to win was amazing!

    CTC, I was at a Bday party on Saturday. We had the Masters on on all the TVs. At one point, I got into a discussion about Tiger with about 4 ladies. And oddly enough, my sentiments were exactly the same as all the ladies... If I judged every athlete, singer, and actor based on their personal lives and beliefs, I wouldn't watch any sports, listen to any music, or watch any movies/TV shows. Bottom line, he's a great golfer. I enjoy seeing him play well, stage a comeback, and kick butt. But then again, I enjoy watching any of those guys "turn it on" and play unconscious (as we used to call it).
    I drink, therefore I am!

    I agree it was good to see tiger "back.". But each major that passes by I worry tiger may not get 19. His kind of dominant game (power) that got him 14 certainly isn't getting better with age. Of course if he putted better he would have won.

    I'll be pulling for him, but I think he could stand to be more polite to the CBS announcer after round. Short smart responses don't win fans.

    Sometimes these PGA greats can be snarky. I had the unfortunate opportunity to attend the Ryder Cup in Oakland Hills, Michigan, back in 2004 and I have to say all of the US Team except for Phil Michelson was rude and distant to the gallery. The European guys were great and went out of their way to entertain us during the practice rounds. I will always remember Jimenez of Spain with his cigar and ponytail getting us cheering and laughing, and Sergio Garcia juggling golf balls off of his club to amuse us. Phil was the only US player who even acknowledged us and smiled and waved, touching his cap as he does.

    Of course we rooted for the USA but I will always have a place in my heart for those European players who not only won the Ryder Cup by a large margin (it was a rout), but seemed to have their priorities in the right place.

    I got to play at Augusta about 7 years ago. It is one of the most beautiful, luxurious, and hard courses I've ever played. I've played TPC Louisiana, Doral Blue Monster, and RTGT Magnolia Grove. Augusta was hands down the hardest course but also an amazing time.

    And to answer your question, yes, I'd play it again in a heartbeat even though it's well above my head. It's about the experience, not the result.
