As usual, the Masters came and went far too quickly and now we have to wait 360 days before seeing Augusta National again. Bubba Watson’s win might not have been the exciting end that we’ve seen so often at the Masters, but the tournament was still pretty special. Before we move on to Harbour Town this week, here are my final thoughts from the first major of the 2014 men’s golf season.
Jordan Spieth put up a good fight, but in the end, it wasn’t enough as Bubba Watson was able to claim his second green jacket in three years at the 2014 Masters. My full day recap is available at theScore.
We could be looking at an historic round of golf on Sunday at Augusta National, as 20-year old Jordan Spieth looks to become the youngest ever winner of the Masters. My third round recap is posted at theScore.
Bubba Watson was able to play some brilliant golf on Friday at Augusta National, while a ton of big names will be heading home for the weekend after missing the cut. Click here to read up on all of the action from day two at the Masters.
It was a pretty fun and entertaining day at Augusta National, as Bill Haas turned in the round of the day with a 68, followed closely by three major champions in Adam Scott, Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen. My first round recap is available at theScore.
Matt Jones was able to defeat Matt Kuchar in a playoff on Sunday to claim his first PGA Tour win at the Shell Houston Open.
After getting within one of Sergio Garcia’s lead going into Saturday, Kuchar really took control of the tournament on the weekend when tee times had to be moved up on both days thanks to threatening weather in the Houston area. Garcia struggled on Saturday to a one-over par 73 in tough conditions and Kuchar took advantage, carrying a four-shot lead into Sunday’s final round. There were instances where Kuchar looked a little loose on the course and it appeared that he might open the door for a few players, like he did last week in Texas, but for the most part, he kept it together until he got to the 18th. While on the tee, Jones did this on the 18th green:
Paulina Gretzky is a good looking woman. Golf Digest is in the business of selling magazines and subscriptions. These two are undeniable facts, and so it stands to reason that putting Gretzky on the cover of Golf Digest, scantily clad with a loose affiliation to golf, would be a good business move for the people at Golf Digest.
