Masters Sunday: Talking about Tiger, Trevor and Tradition on ABC Television
Well, I’m off to our local ABC affiliate to do a spot on The Masters for airing on tonight’s late-night sports show. I let you know this to add a bit of legitimacy to my often-ethereal writing. Some of my biggest supporters, like Tom and BV and Judge Smails, have to do so much damage control on my behalf. Through it all, they never abandon me.
We’ll discuss Trevor’s ability to hang tough through some difficult weather. We’ll chat about Tiger’s inability to putt the ball this week. Remember last August, when Woody Austin discussed outplaying but not outputting Tiger? That happened to Tiger this week, right? He played extremely well on the tee and fairway but could not putt the ball to the hole.
As far as Trevor, how many putts did he make over the final ten holes, from nine and eleven to seventeen? All of them, that’s the answer. When all around, from Flesch to Snedeker to Casey, were making repeated mistakes, Immelman found a way to avoid implosion, to seal the deal.
When it comes to tradition, however, the train derails. What was tradition at Augusta National no longer is so. The tournament has devolved into a Players Championship, a USGA Open, and what used to be the PGA Championship. I am saddened. My hopes are sunk into the PGA Championship and its newfound acceptance of birdies at a major championship. I look to Oakland Hills for birdies, to
Royal Birkdale for eagles, and perhaps to Torrey Pines in June for an acceptance of shotmaking. As for Augusta, let’s hope that Billy Payne can continue to work his magic by bringing back excitement.

Real pros don't crow that their gonna be on TV, they jus do it. Grow up and act like a man, not a kid.
And you're dumb as a cement block.
Seriously, best of luck on the TV gig. It's definitely the place for a guy like you to 'stretch the boundaries of language'...since most of the boobs watching the toob can't write or spell, either!
The score is 11-4 in favor of posts WITHOUT comments. Dude, you're getting into Kyle Christianson 'nobody-hood' territiory there...you are seriously in danger of becoming even MORE irrelevant than you are NOW! ;)
