A few thoughts as we head into a Masters weekend:
The Masters theme in extended HD. Enjoy the visuals, I think they’re almost as good as the music.
…and did you know that the Masters theme actually has lyrics? It does. They’re not very good, but there ya go.
I miss Ken Venturi in the tower with Jim Nantz.
See Bubba Watson today? Supposedly, he’s on some health kick where he’s lost like fifteen pounds – not that he had them to lose to begin with. His new diet is lots of vegetables and fish. I can’t believe how awful he looks – he’s the Karen Carpenter of the PGA Tour. Get that man a steak!
I nominate William McGirt and first round leader Charlie Hoffman as Masters field golfers who look most like a Goodboy.
Watching Thursday’s telecast, my first thought was, where are the azaleas? Turns out because of unseasonably warm weather they bloomed three weeks ago. Guess there are some things even the Masters Committee can’t control. Oh well, better luck next year…
Anyone who could watch the opening ceremony honoring Arnold Palmer without getting a tear in their eye – especially watching Jack Nicklaus – isn’t human.
