Patrick's Perspective 4.15.14: The Masters
What a great tournament. Even though most big names did not make the cut for the weekend, The Masters still was a intense filled action packed event.
Props to the kid Jordan Spieth. He was your leader on the front 9 on Sunday. Eventually though the young gun succumbed to the pressure of The Masters. He was 3 under on that front 9 with a hole out on a par 3 from the bunker which created a roar like someone named Tiger. I want everyone to remember this kid just turned 20 years old. TWENTY. Think about that. He put up a great effort and I think he will have a excellent career moving forward.
Bubba Watson was nails. After faltering early on the front 9 with a bogey, the 2012 Masters Champion dug in and looked like a seasoned vet after that to become now the 2014 Champion. He was smashing his driver 350+ feet on the regular. Hitting fairways, greens in regulation, and sinking birdie putts. He was calm, cool, and collected. And, for that earning his second green jacket. The best moment was after making his last putt on the 18th green his infant son Caleb was on the fringe walking toward his Dad. That my friends is what golf is all about. That moment Bubba picked up his son with tears of joy in his eyes was priceless. That picture is with out a doubt worth 1000 words!
Until next year friends The Masters tournament will be upon us. I'm looking forward to the rest if the majors and the Summer even though it snowed today.
And remember when on the course to hitter long and straight!
