I can't really put my finger on why but, I don't like Bubba at all.

Speaking for myself, I thought he lived up to his name by paying a ton of money for a stupid old car from a stupid old show.

It's better than spending it on drugs and strippers.

I agree it is a "stupid" car, but he clearly has the money to spend $100k on the quintessential redneck car and it does not harm anyone so the question is, why not?  There are thousands of people that wish they could own it (for a reason I cannot comprehend, but that is beside the point).

I did not see Bubba winning The Masters - I was betting on Oosthuizen right up to the end.  I agree with the Phil Mickelson comparison in that Bubba can pull off some creative, bold and amazing shots but sometimes struggles to put four good rounds together.  When he's on, though, he can do just about anything.  I would bet that Bubba gets a bunch of top 10's, a win or 2 each year and 1 or 2 other majors.  I bet Oosthuizen gets one or 2 more as well.  I also agree with the comment made before that Bubba does better when coming from behind vs having the pressure of the lead all day.  Oosthuizen has shown he can handle the pressure pretty well.

I really don't see any more majors? I don't know why but I mean. Just one major doesn't account for an automatic (at least one or more). I see quite a few wins, and plenty of tops 10's. Just not sure about any more majors. The competition is getting tougher and tighter near the top!.

I can see Bubba getting maybe 1 or 2 more majors, he's really an all or nothing type.  I could see him getting maybe an Open championship, US Open is too penalizing and PGA is a toss-up (this year's venue could suit him though)

It's only going to make him better.I don't think he'll get on a Tiger like run,but I do think he will win a couple of more majors along with his share of Tour wins.I have grown to like him since he has mellowed out.

Point is who knows? My money's on the second but if I was actually betting it'd just be a dollar. :-)

I see one of these 3 things happening also, but I would bet more on 1, and only a dollar!  I'm not so sure he won't feel he has accomplished everything he ever dreamed and not really be into the winning.  I've heard a lot of his interviews and he commented that he had never dreamed this big before, so I worry that he might be content with one major and we really never see much of him again.

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
