Masters amateurs put Bobby Jones to shame
The amateurs at Augusta put Bobby Jones to shame this year. Here’s the sad story:
British Am Champ Brian McIlhenney-80 & 75 (low chop)
US Am Champ Edoardo Molinari-80 & 77 (low Italian chop)
US PubLinks Champ Clay Ogden-83 & 76 (low muni chop)
US Mid-Am Kevin Marsh (low older chop)-79 & 81
US Am Runner-Up Dillonn Dougherty (low long-haired chop)-82 & 78
The better round score (counting Ogden and McIlhenney from Friday) would still miss the cut by five strokes. I’m not going to go into the horrible individual holes turned in by this shameful fivesome (after all, Duval double-parred number two on Friday, and he’s a pro), but suffice it to say that this fivesome (forget Ogden, he’s got a job) should certainly set their resumes up on Monster.Com, just in case they play this poorly in the future. Somehow I just don’t see M, M, M and D burning up any pro circuit on any continent of this globe.

He was a sexist, homophobic, racist biggot. I might posess some of those properties, but to ban black people from playing in the Masters (and women as well, although I don't consider that a real issue)is pretty sick.
Charlie Sifford suffered from this blatant racism, but opened the door for Tiger to win the Masters four times. So non-whites got the last laugh.
At the end of the day, Bobby Jones was just an elitist snob from a rich family.
Gee, that's deep, David. But as you surely know, judged by modern standards, you could say the very same thing about most great figures in history.
