Excitement at the Masters

Did that just really happen? After years of speculation of will Tiger win another major? Hearing time after time from commentators and sports pundits that Tiger is back when there is the slightest glimpse of hope or form! To be followed by keyboard warriers knocking him down with comments similar to his career is over. Tiger being Tiger, Let the clubs do the talking and confirmed he is well and truly rising to the top of golf once again, moving up 6 spots to 6th in the offical world golf rankings, It was something very special to witness and his celebrations on the 18th green really showed what this meant to someone who has come out the other side of many battles, both unfortunate and self-inflicted.  Well done Tiger Woods. Tiger 18th Hole Masters Victory 2019

It was possibly one of the most exciting Masters ever to be player or at least that I have ever watched. Molinari played superb the first three rounds but looked nervous from the outset on Sunday, his driving was not to his normal standard and his putts were a little tentitive which is to be expected when leading on Sunday at Augusta. He did well to remain two ahead with 9 to play on a day that proved challenging for all the top players. The 12th hole proved to be a pivitol hole once again with it costing both Molinari and Koepka 2 shots each and what I would consider there chance at this years masters. Koepka did battle back after that mistake on 12 and we are all wondering what could of been if he made that putt on 18. I do think Tiger would of played that 2nd shot on 18 a little differently if he only had a 1 shot lead and made a better attempt at making par. Its true what they say, the great players know how to get the job done when they have to. A player worth looking at for the future is Xander Schauffle, he played super golf for just his second masters  with plenty of birdies but possibly a few too many reckless dropped shots which he can learn from.  Xanders game is looking strong and I think he will win a major in 2019. All in all,  A great year for Golf.
