You win majors by limiting the damage when you get into trouble.

    Dude's got the game, as long as he stays sober.
    I had never heard that about him. It would be surprising since his brother was killed by a drunk driver.

    This video coverage was pretty good when it started but now it's getting choppy.

    A slight difference with Phil. Phil is a much better overall player. And besides Phil's supid decision cost him an open and probably a year of mental issues with his game. Brett is probably in the second tier of pro golfers behind the likes of Tiger, Phil, VJ, Erine, etc. When you want to beat a better golfer you can't make mental mistakes, you can't play stupid.

    That's the part I was responding to.
    Phil has three majors, two of which came at Augusta.

    Anyway, maybe this is the way to put it then. I'd agree with that...except for the occasional gigantic flame outs.

    His brother Matt (IIRC) was killed by a drunk driver, and Brett has his brother's initials on his staff bag, and I believe the back of his tour hat.

    I know for a fact Brett drank heavily while on the Nationwide Tour, and his drinking resulted in him missing cuts b/c he'd celebrate a great 1st round, only to be hungover or sometimes still drunk during round 2, and then miss the cut.

    He's gotten better with his drinking, and I would assume his brother's unfortunate death would be a direct cause of that, but it's no secret that Brett is one of the bigger post-round partiers on Tour. He's not in Daly's class, but there was a time in his life when he wasn't far behind.

    Yes, Matt was killed by a drunk driver. Then there was another death in the family right after that, like his sister's mother in law, or maybe his mother in law. Can't remember exactly. He lived right down the street from me when we were kids; his sister is my age, but I only remember him as a little squirt who was a golf phenom.
    Anyway, you can take the boy out of Delhi but you can't take the Delhi out of the boy, I guess- there was a quarter barrel in every garage refrigerator when we were kids.

    Re: Tiger or the field?

    There's a really neat Master's blog that I've been reading.

    Tom Shaw, Vanderbilt's Head Men's Golf Coach, is caddying for Michael Thompson at the 2008 Masters. Thompson played for Shaw at Tulane before transferring to the University of Alabama prior to last season. He earned a spot in this week's event by finishing second at the 2007 U.S. Amateur. Shaw will be contributing exclusive content from Augusta to vucommodores.com all week.
    http://vucommodores.cstv.com/sports/...041008aab.html

    It's a pretty good read and from a different perspective. The Wednesday piece about the par 3 tournament and all the older guys who make the young guys feel welcome is really good stuff too.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    Looks like taking the field was a good bet. Guess there won't be any grand slam for Tiger this year.
