I didn’t start writing my comments immediately after the Masters ended yesterday. Quite honestly I was very spent from such a fantastic week and such an intense final round. I’m happy to have let it sink in a bit so I can come at this one fresh. It was a thrill to spend Monday and Tuesday on the grounds at Augusta National and for those who haven’t, going there gives you a whole new perspective on the terrain and the place.
2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson – © Copyright 2012 Tony Korologos – click for more images
I’m not going to do a play by play of the final round. Bubba Watson hit an incredible shot on the 2nd playoff hole to beat Louis Oosthuizen. That shot from the right trees, on pine straw, is one of the most incredible shots in Masters history when all things are considered. A green jacket is on the line, so many bad things could happen from that location, and it is practically humanly impossible for someone to hit that shot. Bubba may not be human. Who else can hit a 155 yard gap wedge and hook it 50 yards to a green he can’t even see, spinning it uphill to about 12 feet from a pin which hardly anyone could get close to? (more…)
