Masters Coverage: Live 3rd Round Blogging (pt. 9)
Oh my! Chad Campbell just left one in the bunker! You see, this is why I love golf. Now and then, I can hit shots that are just as good as the pros’. And now and then, they his shots that are just as bad as mine. No other sport that I can think of is like golf in this respect.
And, just as an aside, golf is different from all other sports: No other sport has such a small target, such a small ball, and such a huge stadium.
But I like it because now and then, every golfer–no matter how great–flubs a sand shot.

"Talk about 16. I know you'll probably be thinking about that tonight."
CHAD CAMPBELL: Yeah, it was really a great shot. It was the wrong club. (Laughter).
It's just a mistake you can't really make. That's the only place on that hole you can't hit it. You can make par anywhere else, but that pin, you don't even know the water is there. I don't really know what happened. The thing just took off. Like the wind just laid down -- the wind just ate Kenny's up. Obviously didn't hit mine at all.
You get it back there, and I was hitting that shot, I was actually trying to -- I mean, there was probably about ten percent chance of me landing it in that first cut. If you don't land it in that first cut and you land it on the green, it could go in the water.
So I didn't -- it's hard to explain this. I was trying to land it in that little area, but my miss was to keep it in the bunker, so that's kind of why I didn't hit it very hard. You know, you get it on the upslope, you can keep it on that shelf.
