Call Security – Patron Throws Cigarette on Ground at the Masters

I was watching the online broadcast when a horrific site occurred.  I watched a guy litter, throwing an old cigarette on the ground on what I believe is the left side of the 14th fairway.

Guy in gray shirt about to throw ciggie on the hallowed ground of Augusta National – shame shame

Does this guy throw ciggies on the floor at his house too?


Spiethgasm – Masters Thursday Commentary

Arnold Palmer Now Driving

Yesterday’s first round of the Masters was, as usual, fantastic.  As I’ve said a million times, the Masters Tournament never disappoints.  Thursday’s round had so many great stories to it.  There was the return of Tiger Woods, the resurgence of Ernie Els, and amazing play of Jordan Spieth and a few surprises like the super round of 67 by Charlie Hoffman.

Spiethgasm

Jordan Spieth was -8 going into the easiest hole on the course yesterday, the par-5 15th.  That hole is practically a guaranteed birdie and he could easily reach it in two.  He was between clubs though, and knocked his approach over the green and nearly in the water on 16.  He failed to get the chip on the green and ended up making a bogey.  He got that stroke back on the 18th with a birdie.

The low round of 63 in a major championship was in jeopardy for a while there and the golf media and social networks were blowing up into a “Spiethgasm.”

It will be interesting to see if he can keep it together for four days.

Woods

My prediction for Tiger Woods’s first two rounds has been 74-70.  Yesterday he shot a 73.  Not bad. Not good.  Nine shots off the lead.  It’s not close to over for Tiger and I expect him to make the cut.  The problem I see is massive dipping in his head during his downswing.  If that gets bad, his shot dispersion goes to hell.  You can’t spray it around August and get away with it.

What the weekend holds for Tiger should be interesting.

McIlory

Rory McIlory finished Thursday at -1.  That’s an okay start and he’s not out of it by any means.  I theorize that Rory wants to win this one so bad, it may cause him some mental issues.

Others

Others on my radar include my pick to win it all, Jason Day.  Jason’s first round was super solid, including five birdies in a row.  He’s right in the mix at -5 after day one.

So many other great stories which could be entire topics of discussion.  Ernie Els, at 45, is right up there.  And speaking of older players, how about Tom Watson shooting 71?  He’s the oldest player to break par at the Masters after yesterday.

Cant’ wait for the rest of the weekend.
