The Masters Is Here!

Who DOESN’T love The Masters? So much history can be found on just about every hole at Augusta, and new legends are sure to be added to the lore this year as well. There are plenty of stories to follow:

  • Tiger Woods continues his return after a classic come from behind victory at Bay Hill last week. It’s been four years since he last wore the green jacket. If Tiger can win this weekend, he’ll silence his critics and put an end to all the talk about his knee.
  • Phil Mickelson has been slowly rebuilding his game since his collapse at Winged Foot in ’06. He’s back to #2 in the world rankings and nipping at Tiger’s heels. And isn’t a Sunday showdown between Phil and Tiger what we’d all want to see?
  • Keep your eye on Greg Norman. He’s had some famous meltdowns at The Masters, but with this appearance possibly being his last, he just might pull something out of his hat.
  • Rory McIlroy has been getting a lot of buzz. How will the 19-year-old handles the pressure at Amen Corner? I won’t say his performance here can make or break this rising star, but it will be very interesting to see where he finishes.

Did I miss anything? Let me know what you’ll be watching for below!

    Look out for Paddy. He won his second British Open in a row and the P.G.A. Championship in 2008. Paddy was the keenest golfer in the world in absence of Tiger Woods. Rory McIlroy is keeping the press busy while Paddy is able to focus on his game and enjoy the quiet of Augusta National. Padraig seems to be comfortable lurking in the bushes, ready to pounce in the final round. Things seem to be setting up for Paddy, we’ll see what happens.

    Hi Scratch,
    I’ll be watching: for your Cleveland Hi-bore & Monster drivers to go for 100-skins, Cleveland stand-bag to go for $50-skins, Cleveland 54-deg & gap wedges for 40-skins, Bridgestones’ B330-RX balls for 15-skins/doz, Aqua-man to swim to the green at Redbud, Sabo to kick a fan in the shin, the Serg to win the par-3 (& we know what that means for the regular tourney), the big figian, Ernie, Strickster, the grinder, the shark, and many others all battling for 2nd place – behind Tiigs for his 6th ugly green blazer.

    *** Note From Scratch***

    Ray, you sound like a die-hard Cleveland fan! Now’s a great time to grab that Cleveland E9 Stand Bag…it’s just $50.99 with your 15% Off Coupon this week! Oh, and those green jackets might not be very stylish, but I’d make room for one in my closest if I could just get my hands on one!
