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.

I’m just about to catch my flight home, but I wanted to post a couple of photos from Augusta National and the 2010 Masters…  First, my Dream Foursome was featured on Augusta.com’s web site!

2nd, kissing the #1 fairway.  The pilgrimage is completed.


Ernie Els’ swing looks good. No really.

ernie elsErnie Els, despite having a small gag fest on Sunday before the rain out at Bay Hill, won the Arnold Palmer Invitational. I watched a good portion of Ernie’s play and I must say his swing looks great. Now before you say “duh, his swing always looks great” hear me out.

Despite the fact that Ernie’s swing has always looked as smooth and buttery as any, right up there with Freddy Couples, his swing this year is even better. The thing I’ve noticed the most is the balance he has throughout the swing. His body is also in perfect positions, especially at impact. He’s delivering the club, especially his irons, perfectly at impact.

Already eclipsed 2009, by nearly a million bucks

Ernie now sits atop the FedEx Cup points list with two victories and over $3,000,000 in earnings. In the mere seven events he’s played this year he has already eclipsed what he earned last year playing 19 events.

Peaking at the right time

Ernie should be the favorite at the Masters next week based on his play so far, even over Tiger Woods. Tiger will no doubt be dealing with a lot of “firsts” next week.
