What I Learned From The 2021 Masters

With the start of my golf season yesterday, the lessons I learned from the 2021 Masters will easily be applied to my golf game. There was not magic shot that made me want to reevaluate my game, but more of lessons that will apply to every golfer regardless of skill. These lessons will not force you to change your swing mechanics, but more on how we approach our game for a mental stand point. I think the final round of the 2021 Masters demonstrated the many mental aspects of golf I espouse and will continue to discuss.

The 2021 Masters Champion: Hideki Matsuyama

It was a nail biter, but Hideki Matsuyama overcame the immense pressure to win this year’s Green Jacket. After several suspect shots by Matsuyama, I thought he was going to succumb to the microscopic analyses of his ever move and fold. As it turned out, he played well enough to make that historic walk to Butler Cabin. Congratulations Hideki!

Hideki Matsuyama Makes Most Gains On Moving Day At The 2021 Masters

With a weather delay to break up the action, it was difficult to know what would happen when they returned to Augusta National.

The Top Of The Leaderboard At The 2021 Masters Just Got Tighter

With Justin Rose shooting even par yesterday, he opened the door for the rest of the field to narrow his four stroke lead. It is not as if Rose failed to score well, shooting even par, it just that the other players took advantage of the better scoring conditions. I am actually surprised at how many players actually shot under par (11 on day one); 38 players were in red numbers on day two with Bernd Wiesberger and Tony Finau shooting 66. The conditions must have been very friendly to scoring to have just under half the players shooting under par. Yesterday was atypical and all the movement reminded me of what should happen today – moving day!

Hello Justin Rose A Possible 2021 Masters Champion

Firing a seven under par 65 on the opening day at Augusta National sure sets Justin Rose as the possible favourite for don this year’s Green Jacket. He started off poorly, with two bogeys in the seven holes, then fired a improbable nine under for the last 11. Talk about a dramatic turn around that might lead to Butler’s Cabin. He sure blew my picks out of the water, but wait it is still early and there is plenty of golf still left to play.
