The 2018 Masters – My Final Thoughts

For four days, I was captivate by the stellar play at The Masters. Everyday provided something fun and interesting to talk about regardless of who you were cheering for.

As I watched Amen Corner, I was very surprised to see so great players struggle, while others cruised through without a worry. I am not sure what causes such a disparity, but it sure made a difference to the scores.  Continue reading
