A Golf Blog Unlike Any Other
It's that time of year again. Spring is in the air... birds are chirping... & azaleas are blooming. You know what that means. Baseball. Just kidding. I mean, I did say azaleas right?
The most prestigious event in the sports world has arrived. The Masters. Golf’s wonder to the world has returned. Previous winners and Golf's hungriest competitors take on Augusta National in hopes to take home the covenant Green Jacket.
The Masters is home to some of Golf's fondest memories. My favorite is Tiger's most recent Masters win. Against all odds on that final Sunday in 2019, the GOAT managed to leave his mark on the Golf world while reminding everyone what greatness looks like.
With help from Augusta National's picturesque landscape, The Masters is a must see event. Making non golfers want to tee it up to see if they too can hit the green at Amens Corner. From the pimento cheese sandwiches, to the Green Jacket presentation, there is no other event in sports like the Masters.
This year is a bit different. I mean, we just had The Masters in the Fall of 2020 & not even a year later: We are back! Hey, Im not complaining & if you are - get lost. This, in my opinion, gives golfers the advantage over the course as they still have recent memories of the course and its weak points, as well as its danger zones.
Here's The Play
For that reason, I would not be surprised if we saw a repeat. Thats right, Dustin Johnson. The World #1 is teeing it up again after shooting -20 during his last showing at The Masters. On the hunt for his second Green Jacket & doing so in impressive fashion. Winning The Masters is hard enough, but to repeat? That is a feat rarely accomplished. In fact, since the first Masters Tournament in 1934, back to back wins has only been done three times. Tiger, of course, is one of those three; but who's keeping track? If you are looking for a lock of a bet:
Dustin Johnson to Finish Top 10 in The Masters
Dustin Johnson's Competition
One thing this Masters is missing is the GOAT. Tiger Woods. Tiger is dealing with a pretty serious leg injury after his car accident back in February. I know fans, as well as golfers competing, are missing his presence & energy in the Golf world these next four days.
A few other favorites this week are Colin Morikawa, Bryson Dechambeau, John Rahm, & do not be surprised if you see Jordan Spieth floating around in the Top 10. Jordan is fresh off his first win since 2017 at the Valero Open. The 2015 Masters Champ will look to keep his good play rolling as he looks to take home his second Green Jacket.
I'm excited for how this Masters Tournament plays out. The tradition like no other will always be a spectacle in the sports world. The beauty of Augusta National is timeless and a true privilege to witness in person. The competition will be fierce while these pros battle it out for four days on Golf's most breathtaking stage.
