Masters Sunday

Masters Sunday is perhaps the most exciting day of the year. In fact, it ranks just below Easter as my favorite day.  This Masters Sunday should be no different.

The anticipation and drama that we so often see on the back 9 at Augusta National on Sunday may not be there this year if young Rory McIlroy continues to play golf the way he has the prior 3 days. Some folks say that the Masters begins on the back 9 on Sunday, but this year it could be finished before the last group even gets to No. 10.

I was mistaken about Phil; I thought he’d be in it this year but he simply couldn’t follow up last weeks performance. Doesn’t help that I’m hitting my driver better than he’s hitting his right now. Tiger both suprised and disappointed me yesterday. I fully expected a 68 out of him to stay just on the fringe of McIlroy’s lead. I’m afraid he’s out of it too.

The only drama I see potentially playing out today is if Cabrera, Choi or Scott just get white hot with the flat stick and Rory shoots even or worse on the front 9. Scoring is going to be impossible today unless you get a few lucky rolls on the green, so I honestly feel that all Rory has to do is hold ground. Cabrera has been around though, as have Choi and Scott to a lesser extent, but they know the grounds well also. 4 and 5 strokes are not too much for these guys to get back on Masters Sunday.

Tiger nor Phil are in it to win it this year, but there’s plenty to watch for (and listen to for all you Jim Nantz fans.) Go to church then sit back and enjoy Masters Sunday.

    Don’t look now but Tiger is making a charge. Should make for a great Sunday in Augusta.

      Pretty well actually. Couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thoughts to come when time permits.

        It was awesome , and I agreed with you Saturday evening, thinking all McIlroy had to do was shoot even par , boy was I wrong ; I forgot he was 21 , for one thing. But make no mistake, he will win a green jacket, maybe several.

    It was some kind of finish. Scott and Day played well enough to win but you just can’t beat four birdies down the stretch. Crazy stuff. Schwartzel was incredible. Sure thought Scott was going to win one for the Australians. I was watching it with my son and we both commented on the fact that there is nothing like the back 9 at Augusta. We’re both huge football fans, but I’m like you, it is my favorite sports event of the year. The only thing that could possibly eclipse it would be the Dawgs playing for the BCS. The Super Bowl is okay and March Madness is fun but year in and year out give me the Masters.
