Steve Mata, a former Titleist rep, had a set of Tiger Woods’ irons on ebay. They were allegedly the ones Woods used when he won all four majors in a row. Those irons were for sale at $250,000.
I was just about to click “buy it now” and PayPal Mr. Mata the $250k but then I heard that Tiger made a statement about the irons:
“He may have my set of irons, but they’re not from those tournaments. They’re in my garage.” ~Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods sits at +5 on the 13th hole at Quail Hollow. He’s +3 today and not looking “Tiger like.” Unless he makes a bunch of birdies, he’ll be heading home tonight and missing the cut, the first in a regular season non-major since 2005.
Tiger has hit 1/4 of his fairways, 50% of his greens in regulation and had 10 bogeys or worse. That adds up to a missed cut.

6:55pm ET: Phil Mickelson wins his 3rd green jacket after an exclamation point birdie on the last hole. What an incredible week it has been for me in particular, as I was on the grounds at Augusta National for the first time. What a tournament. What a place. And I’m spent.
Good news: only 361 days left until the 2011 Masters.
6:40pm: Westwood makes birdie on #17 but Phil handles the pressure making a par putt from about six feet. Two shot lead with the final hole to play. It ain’t over yet. Woods finishes with a 69 after making birdie on the final hole. Strangely, he and Choi played together for four straight days and shot the exact same scores all four days.
I’ve just added over 100 photos to the HOG Masters Gallery. I also added a whole new album called Masters Odd Stuff for things you may not normally see at Augusta National. Here are a couple of samples from the 2010 Masters Tournament gallery.
