Congratulations to Scottie Scheffler! The 2022 Masters Champion.

To no surprised, the world’s number one player has won his first Major! Scottie Scheffler played solid golf for the entire 72 holes with very few mistakes. Beating Rory McIlroy by three strokes (should have been 5), Scheffler has won four tournaments in six tries. He is burning up the PGA Tour right now and I wonder how long he can keep up his amazing play. That particular thought is a great topic for another day.

The Masters Day One

After watching seven hours of golf (I think that is a record for me) I found the first day at The Masters to be very typical. There were some highs, some lows, and some grinding. As always, Augusta National Golf Course was in fantastic shape and offered very little chances in the way of lucky breaks.

The 2022 Masters Begins

It is finally here! The Masters starts today and it is going to be exciting. Yesterday was the Par 3 tournament and it was won by 2 Canadians. But the real winners were the professionals, their families and especially the fans.

Now it is on to the action. Let the Masters begin!

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

So, Tiger Woods Is Playing In The Masters

Not surprisingly, Tiger Woods has chosen The Masters to make is return to golf. Other than it is good for ratings that Woods is playing, I do not think he will be a factor on Sunday. I am not trying to be mean or controversial, I think that The Masters is hard to win when you are at 100% and Tiger is just not there. I think he will add a tremendous amount of start power to this weekends play…..not that The Masters needs a hype boost. Regardless of what I think, Tiger Woods is returning to golf this weekend and that is good for golf.

Which Player Shows Up At The Masters

It is Masters week! I am confident that if you have any interest in golf you have reserved your seat on the couch ready for the action. Even if you decide to travel out of the country during the Masters weekend, I am confident your are watching the leaderboard. The hype of The Masters is catching and my old home course of Osprey Links runs a Masters pool where we pick four players and try to accumulate points. It is something that I look forward too each year and this year I think I have the winning team.
