Default The Masters

If there are any golf fans here, the Masters is canceled, for now.

No, no one watches golf. I'm sure it never would have been noticed if you had not brought it up.

Hopefully this will allow Tigers back a chance to recover.

Don't bring up golf or the government will remember the golf courses are still open. Maybe we can get the golf courses to put 4 holes per green and give each of us a cart can we can maintain our social distance.

I'd like to see that happen as well, but...hate to say it, I don't think it is going to happen. Had his personal life not self-destructed, I think it would have happened, even with all his health issues.

Why would you like to see Tiger beat Jacks record?

Jack was hell on wheels, no doubt about it, but records are made to be broken.

He won't break the record because of his health.

His personal life had nothing to do with his record. His back was and is his problem.

Golf is BORRIIIIINNNGGG! Plus a waste of what should be public green space. Also a major waste of water and use of many dangerous chemicals.

Golf is boring to those who have never played I agree. For those that do play most enjoy being outside in a beautiful setting with fun interesting people playing a game that is difficult but sometimes rewarding all while getting some exercise. BTW most golf courses are self sustaining as far as water resources and many use recycled water that would otherwise be dumped into rivers and oceans. FWIW a ticket to the Masters is the most difficult ticket to get in all of sports so at least a few of us don't find it boring.

sorry you feel that way. Millions would disagree with you.
Dangerous chemicals...40,000 people are killed on highways every year, so what is your point?

And it's certainly your option NOT to watch.

1986 Masters, Jack at 46 years old plays arguably the best final round back 9 ever.
It was who's who of golf on the leader board and they all choked.
If you don't play you don't know how amazing his tee shot was at 16, you won't understand what a treacherous
pin placement that was and the cojones it took to fire at the pin .

Scheduled for November this year. I’ll be there the entire week. A tradition unlike any other...
