We have to talk about The Masters, won by Charl Schwartzel with a great final round of 66! How can you not talk about this Masters? Our friend Tiger Woods’ third round caused him to fall out of contention, despite playing well in the final. Several players had a chance to win. We’ll discuss Rory McIlroy’s final round in a second.
For those of you who hate on Tiger Woods, there are many who play for fun who wouldn’t even care about golf if it weren’t for Tiger Woods. A lot of us thought it was an elitist douchefest. We sure wouldn’t watch it. It’s hard to overestimate what Woods has done for that sport. The main reason to watch golf would be for the smoking hot wives and girlfriends of these guys if it weren’t for Tiger. Hell, we’d have his wife in that group if he hadn’t screwed it up by messing with a platoon of Rat-Hall-of-Fame skanks.
Why do we care about golf at BSP? Because it’s a hard MFer, that’s why. Golf is no BS. Unlike team sports, blame for failure isn’t spread around…it lies in the hands of the person who didn’t win. Golf is hard, golf is tension-filled and golf gets progressively harder as you try harder. Check out our hero, the “loser but winner” Rory McIlroy. He follows up his devastatingly good three rounds with a devastatingly bad final. He completed his collapse with a triple bogey on 10, driving himself out of contention. Phil Mikkelson vanished and came in 27th overall.
How hard is golf? The only thing I’d have to say is “It was sad what happened to Greg Norman” and you golfers automatically know what I’m talking about. There isn’t a guy who has picked up a club who hasn’t been there before. Like Rory McIlroy. Class act, especially for a 21-year old. Give credit where credit is due. He came out and answered the questions. A quitter like Manny “Three Time Cheater” Ramirez would have left before even speaking.
