Well, I'm looking forward to the next major of the year, The Open.

Looking forward to the next major.

I also really enjoyed watching it this year, but I was hoping for a closer finish given the leaderboard this morning. Was really pulling for Kuch (or Jimenez!), but I agree that Bubba was a deserving winner. It was also nice to see some consistency with a now 2 time Masters winner. Blixt played great, but it would have been a big let down if he won. 

 

Also, it goes to show that in the end of the day eye hand coordination and athletic ability is more important then having a perfect swing.

You reckon he'll be in his Learjet heading to Liverpool John Lennon come July, then?

I want to know where the Masters champion goes to dinner after he wins? Bubba probably goes to Burger King. Since he won, he blows a little exttra money and gets the Double Whopper.

 

Seriously, I would like to know what various pros did after they won.

They have angered me to no end the last couple of years. The owner sucks and doesn't put a premium on winning.

To not even consider bringing Revis back is gross. c1_cursing.gifz1_censored.gifz8_offtopic.gif

I can tell you where Phil went. Are there any Waffle Houses, Krispy Kremes, or Five Guys nearby?

Nope, I'm referring to The Open Championship being held at Pinehurst in North Carolina.

Yeah, my gf is a Pats fan and railed me hard when Revis signed with the Pats.

Revis has been my favorite Jet this century. Might actually root for the Pats in the 14 regular season games this year.

Ah - sorry, I thought there was a subtle, implied suggestion in there that Tiger's next major competition after returning from injury would be the [British] Open.

 

I don't worry too much about these hang ups regarding "The Open Championship" vis-à-vis the "United States Open Championship." As an Englishman living in the U.S. I generally refer to them as the "British Open" and "U.S. Open" respectively. If anyone takes offence, well, to be honest, life really is too short for such nonsense...

Studied question: does bubba get a second jacket, or does he just get presented with the one he already owns? Maybe they add a tick mark to it or something?
Yeah it's all that. Ears tucked in is terrribble...

Some call guys who wear hats like Ricky, Flat bill, ear tuckers...:-D

Yeah, I lump those people in the same category as those who use the term "THE Ohio State University"...
I think Tiger surprises us all and comes back between the two Opens.

Yeah..those hats are only for people under 35 who like when attractive women want to sleep with them.

He looks like a 4th grader, but acted like a true man to greet Bubba with his first and second win at the masters. That's a good friend. Kudos to Kooch for the same gesture. Classy.

^^^Yep. My opinion of Ricky changed a couple of years ago when Bubba said he asked Ricky for advice. Probably not the norm considering their respective ages.

I put a lot more stock in how the players (that actually know each other) feel about each other than what we all think we know based on a few minutes caught on camera.

Re: Ricky F...IMHO, you can say what you want about how he dresses, wears his hair (when it was long) ect. but from what I've seen and read, he's a good dude, I call him a kid account of I'm way older..lol he does good things for people. I became a fan of his about 2 or 3 months ago, and will always hope that he wins, or does well on tour, even if he is a flat bill ear tucker..:-D

I agree, Ricky is good for golf.  Kids can relate to him and overall he seems like a respectable guy.
