Golf talk

Another no name wins a major. I agree with mize about hating to see no names win these tourneys. These motherfuckers come out of nowhere, win the big one, and then never do anything else special. Some people think it's cool that someone who hadn't won before can win a major like this, but not me. I think that they should only invite people who have won on the PGA tour to play in the Masters. The British Open should only invite PGA or European winners. The US Open, they have their "anyone can play if they win a qualifier" rule. So whatever, keep that. The PGA Championship, who cares, noone likes that tourney anyway. Point is, the Masters is a special tournament, just let winners play it. Just don't let people named Charl Adriaan James Lindsay Schwartzel play, because they might win and taint your tournament.

You know what was awkward, too? That green jacket ceremony in that "cabin". I don't think they're really in a cabin. But you have the low amateur there, some Japanese kid from where the tsunami hit. You've got the old fuck Masters chairman sitting there. You've got Mickelson there, are shiny and looking like he just stepped out of the shower, his hair slicked back like Pat Riley, and a tan line on his face whet his entire forehead is white as mize. It's just a weird setup.

Keeping with the Masters theme, Sunday's round was probably one of the best rounds I've seen. Just about everyone in the top 20 had a really good round going. I'll get to Rory McIlroy in a minute. But guys were there to win it in Sunday. I've nerve seen so many chip-ins, long putts, hole outs (TWSS), and basically strong shot making in general in the final round of a tournament, let alone the Masters. At one point on the back 9 there were 5 tied at -10 and 5 tied at -9, and a couple at -8. And none of those included the guy who went into the final round at -12, which was 4 shots ahead of the field. Poor fucking bastard, that Rory McIlroy. To be ahead by 4 shots to start the day, still be tied for the lead at the turn, and then lose by ten fucking strokes has to sting the nostrils. Dude shot 80. And his display on the 10th hole wad amazing. I think he hit a house, 3 trees, the windmill, and the clown's head before he got to the green. Greg Norman thought Rory was a wreck yesterday. I guess he can take solace in knowing that even if he shoots even par that he still would of* lost by two. Nah, fuck that. Dude should be embarrassed. And I'm not a fan of his, so I was enjoying his meltdown.

It's tough typing on this screen whilst I'm trying to feed bgas. with my other hand.

More golf. It was good to see Eldrick with a chance to win on the back 9 on Sunday. But as clutch as he was on the front 9, he was the EO on the back 9. Once he tied for the lead the second time with that eagle on 15, I thought he had it. But alas, that was basically his climax. Too bad, though. It would have been suite to see him win it.

Other stuff happened this weekend too. The Red Sux said notsofastmyfriend and tried to turn O:FB into O:FNY. Which, really, I'm cool with either one of those. The goddamn Reds lost 2 of 3 to the goddamn Dbags. Breer's won 2/3 against the Cubs. The Mess are still messy. And Poo-holes is batting kod's weight.

I should book my plane ticket to Texas this week. Maybe I'll test aitch's Tuesday theory. WOOT

"Once he tied for the lead the second time with that eagle on 15, I thought he had it."

Birdie, not eagle - he missed the short eagle putt that would've given him the outright lead at that point.


But good Masters summary, well except for the fact that people do know Schwartzel outside of the US. In fact I'd started him once in the Yahoo golf fantasy league this year.

Beth said...

And I have too much catch-up work and not enough interest to read back over a week's worth of missed LOV comments. Someone let me know if I missed anything really important.

Tuesday theory is not mine homie.

euros

Beth said...

"WGAF about euro tours?"

Euros.

Beth said...

Damn, tem beat me to it.

apparently when HHI was just starting out in the 1960s or whatever they did a MAJOR marketing campaign in Ohio to get people to come buy condos and vacation there.

Hopefully they remembered to include Temhio in that campaign.

Blue said...

Tiger still hits shots that nobody else does


he just misses the 3 footers for eagle like he's mickelson now

tem said...

"Hopefully they remembered to include Temhio in that campaign."

they did, but temhio turned them away because too many damn ohioans were already there.

no point in paying for a place where i am surrounded by the same people i am surrounded by here.

if it wasn't free i wouldn't go every year.

pop quiz, what was the DRE stock price @ 12-31-10?

In Europe he's not a nobody. He is here

ok keef

i'd have to look it up tem

El Padrino said...

on dec 31, 2010 the price of DRE was $12.46

El Padrino said...

golf is like poker

anyone could win

tem said...

he isn't a nobody here. he just won the masters and beth played him once in her golf picks.

Cheater said...

"people do know Schwartzel outside of the US. In fact I'd started him once in the Yahoo golf fantasy league this year"


A) I thought you were in the US

II) he is probably on the C list. If we made GOLF PICKS without a list to choose from (ahik*), you nerve would choose him

Blue said...

who names their kid charl

Cheater said...

I was in a golf pick em that a local course here had. You had to pick 5 golfers and whoever's 5-some earned the most money in the Masters won a free round of golf. There were about 100 entries and 1 person had Schwartzel

El Padrino said...

so someone knew about him, got it

El Padrino said...

apology accepted

Cheater said...

I guess he's more of a household name than I thought.
