The Masters Thread

I would rather have fowler pull the comeback but not opposed to reed either

Same way for me really. Would’ve like Fowler to have won as well. Seems a lot of people dislikes Reed for some mistakes he had made at a younger age. So it was good to see him win. I thought he had pushed that last putt for a second

I'd like to see Fowler win a major. I think if he gets one he could win a few in a short stretch. He seems like a good dude and great with the fans.

Rickie will get one. His problem is he plays his best golf when he is behind. Once he gets that turned around he could go on a tear.

And you are absolutely correct, he's a great dude and a fan favorite.

Jim Nance just said Tiger's win at Augusta today was a greater moment than Jack's in 1986. ... True, or is he caught up in said moment? 

I'm a little old-school and graduated from high school in 1986 and was on the golf team (yikes -- am I really that old!), but I'm sticking with Jack! Still golf moment No. 1 for me.

I once thought the greatest Tiger moment was when he came back and won the masters. Today’s win was much bigger. The shot on 16 was better than the chip in.... Nike posting an ad 15 minutes was a tad extreme but Tiger is back and should his driver continue to not fail him he’ll continue to play well

It was once a foregone conclusion he would get 19. Can he still?

I think Augusta is a unique situation. He's shown he's elite again but I think it's going to be a little more difficult to win the other majors than it is the masters. I was surprised that Mollinari frequently out drove him today. That trip through Amen corner was a combination of talent and experience today. 

Koepka, Xander, and DJ were the only ones who seemed to relish the pressure. I think Koepka is going to be a force to reckon with the next few years.

The shot on 16 was amazing. A combination of skill, experience, and intelligence.

Idk about the actual golf itself, but imo what would make Tiger's accomplishment better are the surrounding circumstances. He was basically at rock bottom two years ago, didn't know if he'd ever even be able to play golf again. And now he's rocking the green jacket once again.

I could see Tiger winning a few more majors. I don’t think he’ll ever regain the form or dominance he once held over the sport. The co,binational of his injuries and age along with the plethora of talent on the tour won’t allow for it. His mental game has returned to be good enough to win a major. If his body holds out I could see him being in contention for a few more over the next couple of years.

He was hitting irons and his 3 wood off the tee on more than a few holes. When I saw that stripped 3 wood it looked like the Tiger of old. He also had some drives up near Finau, who is long off the tee. Unless you have the distance and accuracy of a DJ Johnson or Rory, when they’re on, you won’t be able to overpower a US Open course. I’m not sure where the PGA is being played this year but his mental game is coming back around. He could contend for a few more this season.
