My "Masters" Report

leave a comment »

Wonderful, Riveting, Exciting, Fascinating  are the words I use to describe the most thrilling Masters from Augusta in years, the last day course set up was a bit easier than normal and that led to one of the most thrilling climaxes I can remember.

6a00d834

There were some unbelievable shots, some great shots, some normal shots and some downright bad shots but put them all together and you had some 7 hours of seat hugging TV. The big two were on a run and at one stage I thought Phil Mickleson was going to do it, then a loose shot into the water, showed him as a mere mortal.

Kenny Perry kept his nerve till the 17th, then dropped shots on both the 17th and 18th making him finish level  with Chad Campbell the club house leader. Whilst Angel Cabrera kept just kept his head down went for the Par’s and came into the club house tied with the other two to make it  a three man play off.

On the first play off hole Chad Campbell and Perry pull both their second shots  right, after great drives, Cabrera stuck his second in the centre of the green. Perry hit a sweet chip close which he holed, while Campbell from the bunker failed to get up and down so he was out.

Cabrera and Perry went to the 10th, the second play off hole, the upshot of which was Perry bogied and Cabrerra pared to claim the famous Green Jacket and a place in Masters History as the first ever Argentinean to win.
