Masters Golf

Mon Apr 13, 2009 6:50 am

So enjoyable to watch on the television, the beautiful course, the suspense, and finally the sudden death play off. Just one thing though spoilt it, the obligatory big mouth who has to shout "get in the hole"
Why in a sport which prides itself on its high standards of etiquette, and well mannered spectators is this tolerated ?

I noticed at one point during the playoff the commentator was getting a bit sick of him too - "I wish someone would throttle that guy" he remarked.

He was also going on at one point how impressive it is that 30,000 fans were held back by just a piece of string, and how as soon as they are told to be quiet there is absolute silence.

... until tiger hits a drive on a par 5 then some ass screams "its in the hole".....  Yeah sure

It's those spectators that pay the bills. Besides you think most of the people that Tiger brings to the table as far as fans at a tourney are seasoned golfers? It's like the Triple crown. Go to Belmont when there is a chance at the triple crown and compare it to when there isn't.

I was pulling for Cabrera and he pulled a par out of his ass after he hit the tree when he was in the woods. Great finish to the greatest golf tourney.

It was a great finish down the stretch to 18, but the sudden death play was pretty poor. It seems like all the golfers were trying 'not to lose' and no one was playing to win. Kenny Perry, who had played so great all week, seemed to forget how to hit an iron on 17 and 18 and then into the playoff. He really did give it away.

I was really hoping for Perry or Mickelson to win it. The massive comeback by Mickelson would have been a great story if he had not blown it on 12. Kenny Perry would have been a great story based on his age and how well he has been playing of late. Oh well.

All in all, it was a great tournament.

Actually he did it much the way Len Mattice did and hit it in the same spot!

I thought for sure Phil was going to be there after that start. Tiger too once he got close but a couple of bad reads on putts cost them.

Yep glad Argentina finally got the DeVicenzo monkey off their back. Been a long time.

To start with, tickets for the Masters are rarer than rocking horse poo, thus if they threw out every loud mouthed neandethal, they could fill their place 1000 times over. Secondly the income from TV and sponsorship will far outweigh ticket income.

I could really do without the soft piano playing before and after a commercial break. I had to shut it off a few times, it was driving my nuts. It was like they were lulling me into some trance getting me ready to drink the kool aid.  Wink

I think the most impressive thing is that Cabrera was born from a very modest family, to not say below the poverty line. In a sport that generally speaking, whether in the USA, Argentina or wherever, you do not see many ''underpriviledged'' individuals rise to riches and fame, adds a great cushion to the whole thing.
