Tiger has still only ever won the Masters when the Players was held in March.

This could be bad news, as Tiger has only won the PGA Championship when it was played in August :naughty:

Oh no, he's also only won the Open Championship when it's played in Great Britain! 😉

Koepka also went in the water at the 12th and made double bogey, so Tiger outsmarted him too. Koepka arguably wins the jacket without that massive mental error. 

 

 

How good is this no-name Koepka guy?  If he keeps this up in majors he might make a name for himself one day.

Sorry this photo doesn't frame very well - but as much as the photo of Tiger celebrating after making the putt on 18 has been publicized, I think this one does a pretty good job of showing when he really won The Masters. (stolen from Michael Clayton's twitter)

I really thought the green jacket was Koepka's for the taking after he saved par at 10 and Tiger bogied it. Both of them hit poor tee shots on that hole, but Brooks was lucky enough to have a shot to the green while Tiger had to chip out and take the bogey medicine.

It was stunning to see Koepka go in the water at 12. He played very hard from 13 through 18 and showed a lot of resilience after the watery grave on 12. Just couldn't hole the putts he needed to hole on 15, 17, and 18.

I see him winning quite a few more majors.  Maybe a lot more.

He's just stone cold... cold.  Doesn't approach it like most.

This was GREAT - he'd walk up and check out some part his putt when someone was prepping their approach.  Then walk back out of the way for the shots......just to make sure they saw him up there.  He's wiley.

TV Stats:

CBS covered 69 of the 70 strokes from winner Tiger Woods (skipping only a tap-in putt on hole #1). Francesco Molinari actually received coverage for 70 shots. His final score of 74 included two penalty strokes, so CBS only bypassed two of his shots (a layup on 15 and his tee shot on 17). Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau were spotlighted for 59 shots each. Those four players accounted for 57% of the televised shots.

Dustin Johnson got 10 shots for his runner-up finish. More here:

And all of Tiger's shots:

    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
    • "Did you not read post #2?" apparently not all of it...
    • I queued these up to watch later on the big tv, thanks! I love Lost, have watched it many times as well as The Leftovers, so this show is a must watch for me.
