    Re: Masters 2024

    Early shoddy shots by Scottie were no problem with his short game bailing him out. 3 putts through 3 holes and a 2 shot lead at -8. And, he just airmailed the 4th green.

    Well, we had so much promise for a great back 9 an hour ago, but now it appears a blowout is on by Scheffler. Bummer.

    Seems like a bit of an odd duck. But an odd duck who can say he outplayed Tiger on a Sunday at Augusta!

    Re: Masters 2024

    It turned into a ball striking tournament and Scottie really is that much better than anyone in the world. He's winning in ways Tiger used to win 20 years ago. By making insanely difficult setups look anything but. If this mallet fixed his putting we could very well be entering the era of the next golf great. He's never going to be beat tee to green.

    Rahm was off this week but he's the closest thing right now. Brooks maybe, but he didn't have it this week. Bryson was fun, but he'll never match Scottie's on ball striking. It was nice to see Morikawa flash this week, he was close.

    Also, Tiger looks phenomenal for a guy who never plays competitive golf. I know this is one of his courses, but the conditions have been absurd. And he's outplaying most tour pros. Maybe he should play more? The walk at Augusta is worse than just about every course on the planet.
    Tiger's last 2 days were epically bad. With his current physical condition, can he play well for 4 straight days? Seems like Sat and Sun will always be a major problem

    Re: Masters 2024

    Scotty may be bland, but man is he good. Just a great ball striker. It almost feels like is is going to go on a Tigeresque tear through the game.

    I can't find myself to root for Bryson. You have the whole LIV thing, but the guy just seems bristly.

    I find it ironic who Rahn took the money from LIV now wants LIV to change. Also was shocked that some of the guys were cold to him.

    The sad thing about the state of golf today is you have four tournaments in which the best in golf are playing, other than that, you don't get all the big names. For all the big names in LIV, there just is no juice to the tournaments. And really with the exception of Koepka, no LIV golfer has been close in the majors.

    I do agree the Masters of yesteryear seemed to have more drama, I don't know if the pins have changed on 13 and 15 but it seems like there were more eagles in prior years. There was always a possibility you could make up strokes on 13-16, but it just doesn't seem that way anymore.

    Didn't Mickelson (of LIV fame) tie for second at the Masters last year?

    He may have, but it wasn't compelling. It wasn't like he was going shot for shot with Rahm (pre-LIV fame.)

    Yeah, that's going to be his Achilles heel. He's not getting any younger and time is undefeated. Tiger may still be able to compete if he could ride a cart but he has said in the past that he wouldn't do that. It will be interesting when he turns 50 if he would join the Champion's Tour. They can ride carts there. But would it be beneath him? Jack played and so did Arnie.

    Tiger's not just fighting Father Time. His accident means he's got all sorts of foreign bodies placed by an orthopedic surgeon inside of him. That comes at a cost. Just one foreign body (hip) cost Bo Jackson his sports careers. Not to mention Tiger's other surgeries before the car accident
