    Anyone who didn't hug Bubby Watson, please raise your hand.

    Man that approach was crazy, Mickelson worthy.

    That shot out of the pine straw has to rival Mickelsons 6 iron in 2010..Congrats Bubba

    I'm a little disappointed. I think I'm becoming a full blown Louis Oosthuizen fan. I love that guy. Not only does he have the most perfect swing in the world, he has the best on course demeanor of anyone as well. It's like he had no idea he was playing for the Masters. When the ball hung over the hole on Saturday, he laughed about it. When he hit a bad bunker shot today he looked at his caddie with a grin as if to say "oops". He acts like he's out on a Sunday afternoon playing with friends, not taking himself too seriously. I really spark to guys like that. He's the exact opposite as Tiger.

    Nice win for Bubba, even though I'm not his biggest fan. I didn't think he had a major in him but he's clearly matured as a player and may just win a few more.

    Oh Phil. What can you say.

    I like both guys, as a fan from afar since I don't follow golf week to week, so I would have been happy with either winning or even Phil coming from behind. Freaking great Masters.

    Im glad Bubba won. I also thought it was cool how his PGA tour friends were out there to greet him when he won. Seeing Mahan, Crane, and Fowler there to greet him when he finished was something you dont see often. (If you want to blow some time check out Bubba on youtube.)

    I really dislike how Jim Nantz puts himself at the focus during the Green Jacket presentation. But I loved Bubba's response to his shot on 10. He said something like "well I am pretty good at hooking the ball." The players are getting so much better in today's golf game. At one time there were only a handful of guys who would have the strength and courage to hit the shot Bubba hit. Now there are so many golfers out there who can hit that type of shot.

    I also liked during his victory speech he thanked the members and the volunteers and the clubhouse attendants. He was obviously nervous, but he kept going back to them in the last minute, like he wanted to make sure he thanked them. In the midst of all those nerves I thought that said something.

    Bubba killed it with this line last night: "In my dreams, I never actually got to this point."

    I dig golfers like Bubba and Phil because they're always in "go for it" mode. They'll make some incredibly dumb decisions, but they'll also take your breath away with some absolutely amazing things as well.

    As far as Tiger goes, I'm done with everything about him. Winning and dominance was a protective bubble that hid the real Tiger Woods -- now that his game has been stripped away from him, we're left looking at the sad and pathetic human being that was inside the entire time.

    I never understood the outrage about Tiger casually kicking his club, or dropping a few curse words on the course. I know golf is supposed to be different, a gentleman's game or whatever, but if you put a mic right next to a super competitive athlete in the heat of the moment what do you expect to hear? I wonder what's said in a baseball dugout, basketball huddle, or football sideline.

    I wouldn't go as far as to call Tiger a pathetic human being. I know his foundation has changed the lives of many kids for the better. He's obviously not without flaws...but he's also living in a fishbowl. We all have em, everyone just doesn't see and analyze each one of ours.

    But yeah, that was a great win for Bubba. After he missed his putt on 18 I thought it was over. Oosty had been playing so consistent tee to green I figured he'd win.

    They are just like the rest of us duffers, the difference being that they make stupid decisions on the golf course and their ability bails them out.

    I am so tired of boorish behavior being excused or rationalized away because a player is so "super" competitive. So if you don't spray the course with f-bombs and kick/throw clubs you don't really want to win badly enough?
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
