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.

Doesn't Zalatoris use a long putter with an arm-lock grip?

yes, good point.  It's arm lock, but with claw grip so wasn't sure how to classify that, I went with claw

I love that the broadcast is available to stream on the Masters site. Don't have to remember to DVR, can watch it from anywhere pretty much.

I can't stop thinking about this picture. I was today years old when I found out that the Butler Cabin interviews were done in what amounts to a TV studio in the basement.

Who were the woeful "longs"?  Adam Scott, Bernhardt Langer?  Who else?

Well...Langer is an anchorer with an asterisk.😉

Another thing that came out of watching this year, I don't watch as much golf as I used to anymore, is what are these companies I've never heard of. PEGA. slync.io, UKG, etc... It just reminded me of all those companies whose complex and boring software you have to work with and those training courses that make you go ZZZZZzzz in 3... 2... 1...

I wonder if any of these pro golfers know what supply chain management remotely is, other than not doing anything controversial for a big paycheck.

What a piece of sh*t. Hands up if you give a crap what type of golf ball Gary Player uses.

I wish I'd started a thread where I said I thought it would be "cool" to know what ball Player uses and did anyone know.

Seriously, contrast that with that beautiful moment with Matsuyama's caddy.

“The only thought from that point was that it would be cool for fans to know what ball my dad was teeing off with. That’s where it ends. If I’ve hurt people’s feelings then I’m truly sorry and hope they will forgive me.”

I thought I heard somewhere that the green jackets stay on site at Augusta...is that not the case? I thought that was a weird rule, but just assumed it was true

Not for the champion (until the next Masters).

I'd rather not see Gary there too. He isn't a good ambassador for the game, and despite his wins, shouldn't be taking a starter role IMO.

What Wayne did is a disgrace that will be seen in almost every image of Lee Elder from this monumental moment. It really is a shame.

I honestly don’t know much about the guy (other than that he seems to be full of himself), but this little stunt is in obviously poor taste. He also came off like an ignorant curmudgeon on his tree rant during Tiger’s Payne Valley match interview.  I’m usually a big fan of tradition, but I honestly wouldn’t miss him if they cut him from the opening ceremony. I don’t see where his presence adds anything.

Gary Player has spent the last 40 years (at least) trying to convince everyone (including himself) that he is part of a holy trinity of golf" Player, Palmer, Nicklaus.

He is a complete liar, f***wit and cheat.

Even his exercise regime was lampooned by Nicklaus as a lie.

    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
