A)  He just had surgery, the exact nature of which (recovery time) none of us know anything about.  He's surely not bed-ridden, but perhaps travel is a no-no?  We just don't know.

 

and

 

B)  He's Tiger Woods.  He pretty much does whatever he wants, no?

 

The latter more than the former, I suspect.

Yeah, I'm aware it's a dinner for past champs. I'm also aware you mentioned the surgery, that's why I didn't quote you. I just don't know how much it takes (back surgery, family situations, apathy) for an invitee to decide not to go. As @Golfingdad said.

Thanks.  And I almost thought that the guy in between and in front of Mike Weir and Bernhard Langer could be Mize, but that guy looks wayyy too old, right?

Wait...isn't that Tiger on the far left?

:whistle:

I think you're right.  That does look like Mize, but it's not a very clear picture.

The Par 3 Contest is about to go live.

Is Faldo 8 foot tall?

post #225 of 1528

I think I'd be more surprised if he was there, but that's just me.

Yeah he's like 6'4 or something. 

 

Nicklaus hit a ridiculous shot on the first par 3. Real close.

It looked like 3 feet from the pin! I didn't get to see Arnold's swing...but it looks like the ball came up like 15 feet short of the green?

They haven't posted the Billy Payne interview yet today on masters.org.  Anyone find a link to it somewhere else?  I know it already happened, but I missed it.

 

Is it a violation for Billy Payne to sign the Past Winners' menu?

Arnie came up way short, and Player was pin high just off the green on the right fringe.

Why is Ian Baker Finch playing in the par 3 tourney?

post #232 of 1528

I wish the par 3 course I play on looked 1/16th as nice as Augusta's!!!

He is?  That wouldn't make a lot of sense.  Huh.

 

Just saw him shoot. That's weird.  Maybe they invite the CBS crew that are past tour players to participate if they want to.  I think I'd feel weird playing with everyone else that's actually won the tournament.

Unless of course his surgery recovery would have prevented him from going, but all of you guys in the injury thread that have had the same surgery made it sound like you were doing backwards hand flips 4 days afterward, so I don't know.  :-P 

I'm pretty sure that after back surgery you're on strict bedrest, so its not that surprising that he isn't at the champions dinner.

 

If Mickelson would've had the same injury, I can guarantee you he wouldn't have come. Nobody would after back surgery.
