Default The Masters

Well time for the ultimate Southern Sporting event of the year, even if you are not a golf fan most folks will tune this in sometime during the weekend

Got to pull for Dustin Johnson but looks like Mcilroy is off to a great start and Left can not be overlooked

Lefty stayed in it with a horrible driving day and average putting. If he can get his drives half way sorted out and start putting like Phil he will be right there. I'd like to see Sergio and Ricky Fowler do well. I'd like to see Tiger post a 76 today.

I can understand playing golf, however, I can never comprehend watching golf.

Its kind of like Nascar in that it is boring as hell unless you know the personalities and a little bit of inside information. I like it, but I do understand your point.

I don't golf, but if it's close, I watch the final round.

Stunning landscape...

Didn't I tell y'all that Tiger was over-rated.

Speaking of "Lefty"
Do you know the difference between Phil and his wife?






























On his wife the smile is real and the boobs are fake

I watch some of it. But the Masters production is getting ridiculous, with all the fake bird calls, and now messing with the crowd noise by using the mute button to shut it off and on like a light switch.

I got to walk all around that course (Practice rounds and par-3) for 3 straight years during the 80's. Pretty awesome place. I pulled up a little divot of grass one year and put it in that green colored sandwich baggie. Took it home and kept it alive in a terre cotta pot. Grew good for a while but died off. We walked around with Jack, Arnie, Gary, and Greg Norman. That was pretty sweet watching them play. Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen always led the practice rounds. Heck of a lot of golf history between those 6 golfers

I have to agree, I found myself rooting against him. No real reason, I guess he looks a little like a douche I work with.

Picture of me and my Best Buddy, my son at Augusta National last year

I surprised him with tickets to the practice round, even called his boss and arranged for him to be off without him knowing it

Means a lot when a grown 23 yr old man that used to be your little boy grabs you and gives you and Hug

That is actually TW teeing off behind us on the t box

I think it's inappropriate to joke like this about a woman who's fighting breast cancer.
