Augusta Masters Review: Great Scott!

Can’t see the Woods for the trees…

Good evening and welcome to my review of the Masters, which finished yesterday with a first Major win for Aussie Adam Scott. I thought it was a a good tournament, which became all the more interesting with the heart-wrenching play-off at the end! I made a previous blog on this toppic midway through the rounds so go back and laugh at my poor predictions if you so wish here.

Let’s start with the embarrassing- my long standing prediction about Sergio Garcia was horrifically wrong. He finished alright though at -3 and I’d still like to tentatively say that he’s got a chance in the majors this year. Another point of interest was the 14 year old Guan making us all feel old by making the cut despite not being able to reach most of the par 4s in two shots. Tiger did not make his fabled return, tying for 4th on 5 under par over the 72 holes. At times he threatened to win but the two shot penalty really did the damage to his hopes of victory.

But the main talking point is bound to be the ‘Aussie Rules’ which hung over Augusta. Amongst the significant challengers from Down Under there was the winner Scott, the slow playing Jason (takes all) Day and new rival Martin (let off the) Leishman. They all looked like they can be champions at some point during their careers, especially Day, whose enthusiasm and hunger for the game were remarked upon by all manner of analysts.

A final few notes:

  • Cabrera was really unlucky not to win, losing in the playoff. At his age you could fear that was his final chance. 
  • Blubber Watson did a poor job defending his green jacket, scraping through the cut with no repeat of his last round heroics of last year.
  • Did anyone else notice that Lee Westwood was sponsored by UPS? Ironic for a player renowned for not delivering when it counts.

That’s all I’ve got on the subject for now: please leave a like and follow if you enjoyed it. Also leave a comment with your thoughts on the 2013 Masters if you’re that way inclined. Until the next time!

  1. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your
    own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking
    about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

  2. Hey I’d be happy to help. Where do you wanna be contacted? Just here or by email? Thanks for taking an interest 🙂
