Phil wins At Augusta

April 12, 2010

Phil Mickelson won at the masters this week. This is his third Masters title. He was win less through the beginning of this year. In fact, he struggled mightily. He only had 1 top 10 coming into Augusta. He had one of the best 36 hole finishes of all time. On saturday,  he went eagle,eagle, birde on holes 13-15. He was 5 under in 3 holes. On sunday he struggled off the tee missing 4 strait fairways but, he was able to hit some amazing punch outs like on the 13th hole. He had 205 yards to the hole, on pine straw, hitting through a gap about 3 feet wide, and had to get over a stream. He hit it to 3 feet. It was the best shot of his life and maybe the shot of the decade(2000-2010). What was the amazing part was that his wife and kids were there. His wife made her first appearance on the course since being diagnosed with breast cancer. After Phil made the winning putt ther was a long hug between Amy and Phil. If you couldn’t keep a dry eye when they embraced, you would have to be one cold fish.


The Bear Trap

March 8, 2010

Yet Again the Bear trap has claimed many victims this Honda Classic. If you didn’t see any of the blunders let me give you some examples. Vijay Singh hit the ball in the water at 15, 3 putted 16, and 3 putted 17. He finished with a bogey on every hole of the bear trap in the final round. Nathan Green hit the ball in the water on 17 but decided that it was still playable. It took him 3 shots to get out of the water and made a triple bogey. There were around 400 balls in the water and the three holes all played over par.

Villegas wins The Honda Classic

March 7, 2010

Camilo Villegas won the 2010 Honda Classic by a landslide. This is an important win to him for 2 reasons. First of all, the Honda is held in Florida. Villegas went to University Of Florida. Also, he hasn’t won since 2008. He played well last season but was never able to finish. Vijay Singh was tied for 2nd overnight and was still in contention coming into The Bear Trap(holes 15-17). Sadly, his tee shot into 15 went in the water.  He then 3-putted both 16 and 17 to put the nail in the coffin.
