Dottie Pepper calls out Sergio Garcia

Lately I’ve had a bit of a middle age crush on Dottie Pepper.  Well that just spiked because Dottie called out Sergio for his childish behavior/comments at the Masters.  You go girl.

No athlete is beyond making knucklehead moves with the media — I have my own long list of regrets — but you can turn such a misstep into a positive by dealing with it honestly. When you do apologize, as Sergio did two days later, don’t issue a statement that sounds as if another person wrote it. (I can’t recall hearing Sergio use the word iconic before.) Fans forgive those who ‘fess up and take responsibility. Such contrition goes hand in hand with taking responsibility for your own game, a key to succeeding, as Kenny Perry did after just plain ol’ losing the Masters. Sergio will have plenty of opportunity to make amends at the Players. If he doesn’t, I can’t begin to imagine how brutal the U.S. Open fans are going to be at Bethpage.

Love ’em or not, I’d rather have announcers like Dottie Pepper and Johnny Miller who have enough golf balls to call a spade a spade and aren’t afraid to have an opinion.  I’d much rather hear that than hear them spewing out a bunch of generic panderous rubbish.

Kenny Perry lost his swing starting on the 17th hole and through the two hole playoff. Chad Campbell succumbed to the pressure as well, putting his approach shot into the right greenside bunker on the 1st hole of the playoff.

Angel Cabrera has some big time kahunas and is Masters champion!  I’ll write more later, but there’s still daylight.  I’m off to the course to play until sunset.


I think I’m going to have a heart attack.

Kenny Perry bogeys the last two holes.  We have a three man playoff between Kenny Perry, Chad Campbell and Angel Cabrera. Guess I’ll keep my clubs in the garage for now and crack open a frosty beverage.

6:21pm ET

17th fairway… Kenny Perry has a two shot lead after making birdie on 15 and nearly ACING 16.  I’m so happy for Perry, who will become the oldest major champion in the history of golf.  I just hope he finishes soon, so I can get out and play a few holes.  This is the only time of year I’d rather watch golf than play it, and I have the itch.

5:40pm ET

Kenny Perry just made a 3-putt par on #13 to stay at -12, but still holds one shot lead over Chad CampbellCabrera still has a chance at -10.

Tiger and Phil both limped home, making bogey on 18.  Perhaps they just beat each other up today.  Tiger even knocked his 2nd shot off a tree trunk.  Phil‘s 67 and Tiger‘s 68 could have been 65’s or better.  I could have sworn I saw Tiger limping after the tree shot on 18.  Just like in football, limp after you make a bad play…

6:30pm ET

Chad Campbell made a huge mistake on the par-3 16th.  He was in the back bunker with no green to work with.  Rather than playing safe, he went for the pin and left it in the bunker.  Then he missed the bogey putt.  He lost two shots to Kenny Perry, giving Perry the outright lead.  But while that was happening Cabrera was busy making birdie on #17 to tie for the lead at -11!  Boy is tomorrow going to be fun.

Furyk is in the house at -7 within striking distance.

5:00pm ET

The greens are soft and many players are throwing darts.

The leaders Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell have made the turn.  They’re both at -11 with Cabrera at -10 after he birdied #10.  Wait a sec.  Perry just made birdie so he’s alone in the lead now at -12 after 10 holes.

Stricker and Furyk are at -6 after 12 holes.  Mickelson birdied #15 to reach -5 while Tiger birdied #17 to get to -4.  I still think Tiger is too far back.

3:15pm ET

Tiger Woods has come back with a couple of birdies and is back to -2 after 9.  He doesn’t look like he’s controlling the spin of his approach shots though.  He’s spun several shots back too far and even off of greens.

The leaders Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell parred #1 and both birdied #2.  They’re now at -10.

Phil Mickelson is playing well and has it to -5 with a ton of other players including Stricker, Mahan, Furyk, Sabbatini, Katayama and Kim.

Cabrera back is at -8 and has shaken off the nerves after a birdie on #3.

1:30pm ET

Tiger Woods is likely toast for this year’s Masters. He double bogeyed #1.

Camilo Villegas is moving up the leaderboard, now at -4 after five holes.
