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.
“If Freddy could putt, he might have a 2nd green jacket”
“If Tiger could putt, he might have his 5th green jacket”
“The ‘Phil Slam’ is only two major wins away”
Remember when everyone called Lefty “The best player to not have won a major?” Those days are long gone.
Phil took his TWO drivers and won is 2nd Masters with a well played 69. There’s a rumor floating around the web that one apparently isn’t on the USGA conforming list. More info on that later. His only bogey of the day was on 18 when it didn’t matter since he had a 3 stroke lead.
Rocco Mediate was in the hunt until he carded a 10 on #12 en route to a meltdown 80.
Fred Couples was very close to winning and would have been the oldest Masters champ had he done so. If only he could have made some putts today he and Eat would be happy.
Press to Fred Couples: “Is there an optimum age for golf”
Freddy: “For Tiger it’s 16 and on…”
Press to Phil: “What do you think of the lengthening of Augusta National”
Phil: “I like it.” DOH!
Press to Phil: (paraphrasing) “Like Arnold and Jack you are trading Masters championships with Tiger.”
Phil: (paraphrasing) “I’m not interested in trading.”
