Here’s this week’s What It Means:
1) What an amazing Sunday at Augusta. Bubba Watson, a throwback player to another era, who in 2010 at the PGA Championship just wanted to make the Ryder Cup team so his father could see him represent his country before he passed, hits one of the most amazing shots in Masters history to win his first green jacket. As Jim said, these are scripts you just can’t write.
The shot on #10 in the playoff is one of the best shots in golf history and will be replayed for years and years to come.
The man who plays shots no one else even attempts is now a major winner and if he can keep his emotions in check in the clutch — who knows, he might win a bunch of majors.
2) Similarly, Louis Oosthuizen’s double eagle on #2 will also be replayed for years to come. Look, in some ways he ran into a buzz saw that was Watson and his wild shot making down the stretch.
For him, the second shot on the second playoff hole is what will rue him, but overall this is a really nice bounce back after a pretty serious ankle injury last year.
3) Tiger Woods’ week was plain and simply awful. For some reason, it just didn’t translate from Bay Hill to Augusta. We’ll see what happens when we next see him at Quail Hollow.
