Hideki seems like a lovely guy. How good is your Japanese?

If I lived in Japan as long as he’s lived in the U.S. and made millions, it’d be better than his English. 😉

I'll give a free TST towel to the first person who names the winner (full name, not just last name) and the correct winning score in relation to par. Only one entry per person, and your first ent

The most important part of the Masters Tournament has just been decided.  I'm there for the lobster & corn fritters, miso-marinated sea bass and the peach cobbler.

Liver, fava beans and a nice chianti.

This could be a fun finish. One at -11, four ahead of the rest, then four on -7 in the chase. A few birdies and bogies and anything can happen. Especially with the final stretch providing scoring opportunities.

Matsuyama has done quite well with only four bogies all week, but Sunday is different. Four shots can disappear quickly.

I think he speaks English but is not very comfortable doing it in interviews. Same went for Diasuke Matsusaka, the Red Sox pitcher. He spoke English to the manager and his teammates but his accent was really thick.

Yeah I’ve read he’s extremely shy too. Either way, he blatantly cheated a few years back, he’s a dud...and I’m just not a fan. This win ( he will win) will be huge for Japan so that’s cool. But he’s a dud.

He probably is, he’s boring to watch.  He shows zero emotion.  It’s almost like he’s bored himself out there

I took a $20 straight up bet on Hideki just now (over the field). I don't even know that I think he'll win, but at least it gives me a little something to be interested in later today.

Justin Rose lost a four-shot lead in about two hours on Friday.

I like some emotion on guys too.  But, more guys are coming on tour showing less emotion, because of trying to remain in a stable mental state.  It depends on the person, but expression can sometimes wind them up too much.  I always liked Tigers rule.  He allows himself to be emotional when near the ball, then forces himself to move on after a few steps from walking on to the next shot.

Has anyone ordered the food package from The Masters? Taste of the Masters. It sells out pretty quickly.

I believe this still has a nonzero probability:

 

So what you are saying is that there is still some probability that HM can win? I'm not sure what you meant by that statement.

I think there is some probability, actually some decent probability.

Not very good.  Many years ago, a friend (who is fluent, non-native, non-Japanese even) put me up to learning how to order my then-typical sushi order in Japanese.  She taught me the words and so on, and I was doing reasonably well until I ordered usagi (thankfully, she was there to explain to the chef what I meant).  Of course, I was effectively going from a memorized script and not trying to speak.

Oh my that looks good.  I never really know what to serve for the Masters.  Something peach flavored, and I never can quite find pimento cheese.  Kettle chips and chocolate chip cookies seem good, and of course the iced tea (but given where it's from, that tea might be too sweet for me).

No, I think I was omitted from both of your lists of who predicted who.  I put my prediction of Schauffele down on Wednesday, which I quoted back (in the comment you're replying to).

Well I apologize omitting your prediction, I will go back and add you. Not that my list is "the list", but it gave me something to do.

Not a worry at all, I hope I didn't sound mad or anything.  

If you're going to say "left handed Masters champions," and then list exactly {Weir, Mickelson, Watson}, you really should state that you mean that they're playing left handed.  The first two, I believe, are right handed people.  I have no idea how many left-handed people have won while playing right handed though.  Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

You can make your own.  Your chef can find the recipe on-line.

I think you're giving my abilities too much credit :-)  

But for real, I will look into it, and practice, so I can serve it at next year's viewing party.

I’m rooting for Zalatoris today. A debut winner would be fun.

    • I’ve played several times in the past week and a half, four rounds to be exact, so here we go! 5/6: Decided to play 18 holes after school, and I’m happy I did! My front nine was spectacular: two birdies and two bogeys, the rest pars for an even-par 36. One of the birdies was on the tough fifth hole after I bombed a drive and hit a wedge to six feet. That beats my personal best nine by two strokes! I started par-bogey on the back, but went +12 on the last seven holes to shoot 49 on the back for an 85 total. Still a solid number, but it was disappointing after the front.   5/8: I played a handicap match with a buddy at Croasdaile. Because of the tees we were playing and out handicap difference, I got twelve strokes, including nine in a ten-hole stretch. After five holes of the match, I was six over, and down two. But then started the stretch I mentioned above, and I took advantage, winning five holes to take a one up lead through 13. But then came the turning point of the match. I was sitting two on the par-3 14th about three feet out, and since I was getting a stroke here, I had a great chance to go two up with four to play. But then Zack chipped in, and my par putt, not for just a half, missed. All square with four to play. Because I got a stroke on two of the last four holes, I still had a chance to win. But momentum was with Zack. He went +1 on the last four holes, good enough for a two up win. My final numbers: 45-45 for a 90 from the blue/white combo tee (6241 yds, 70.8/133). Despite losing the match, I’m pretty happy with the round. Didn’t putt well on Croasdaile’s quick greens, but hit it well for the most part!   5/11: Played the home course again, and because a league was going off the front, I had to start this round on the tougher back nine. I managed three pars on the back nine, including the signature 18th hole, and I shot 45. Given the way I was playing, I figured I could shoot low 40s on the front nine.  I was right. Five pars on this side, and with two doubles as well, I shot 42 to finish with 87. Another solid round with solid putting (only 30 putts!) that saw my handicap drop a tenth of a stroke (16.0 to 15.9)!   5/17: In prep for the Durham Amateur tournament at Hillandale, I went to play Hillandale yesterday. From the blue tees. On the tougher front nine, I shot 44 which included a par on the tough par-3 seventh. Then, because I had only an hour and 20 minutes until all golfers needed to be off the course, I took a cart for the back nine. Playing kind of fast because I was pressed for time, I actually did okay. Despite playing holes 10-15 in only 45 minutes, I was +7 for the back. Not bad at all because all of the tough holes are in the stretch I’d just finished. I then went par-bogey, meaning a par on the short par-5 18th would bring me in with 88. I proceeded to hit my tee shot into an environmentally protected area, which, lucky me, played as a hazard, so I could just drop. It didn’t help me much though, because I was on in five, and three putted to finish the round with a 47 for the back and a 91 total. Didn’t hit it great, but I putted well again (32 putts here), so that saved me. Short game was also solid!
    • For folks that like the pod, they posted this video of them playing Kiawah recently from where the pros will play this week.  It's a long one,   a pro gives him some advice at the 42 min mark somewhat related to this.  Curious if you agree.    Overall, pretty fun video to watch some decent players try to play that course.    
    • Hi, Anyone out there playing with Ping Eye 2 irons still?  I have acquired a set and would like to deloft these clubs 2-3 deg.  What are your suggestions for final loft specs on these irons?
    • I have played with this push-out early then suck in collapse loopy move for so long, the Mylan coating on my brain pathways is like 40 years old veneer on hardwood.  I really need a few good rounds at some point with this move then I can get some trust and re-Mylan for good. I have literally been losing all context half way through the downswing and jump on the ball abandoning all trust. Scores are a bit comical but I understand where we need to go (I said 'we', hah). Need to survive the lows this year. Digging deep for patience.  
    • Kinda, but kinda the opposite too. If you push your hands "out" early, they'll "suck in" late and fold/collapse. If you just turn (ideally on a steeper angle with your shoulders), and lift, and fold barely… they'll be plenty wide and deep enough.
