The Masters

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.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

    Great post man. What an amazing Masters, one of the best I’ve ever seen in my life for sure. It was painful to see Rory McIlroy collapse in the manner that he did, especially for such a young kid to go through something like that wasn’t a pretty site. However, it once again was a little frustrating to see another supposed great talent to falter down the stretch of a major tournament and even though it wasn’t surprising to see I would like to see someone step up every now and then on a consistent basis. At this point in time I’m not sure whether I see McIlroy being the guy but at least it opened the door for another guy to step up in Schwartzel who did a tremendous job on Sunday. There were so many guys in contention that it was just fun to sit back and watch the action unfold. Golf is back in a big way and the Masters again helping show why April is the best sports month of the year. Also, you think you could check my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/04/10/rory-mcilroy-another-wasted-talent/
