Sorry, The Masters Was Mediocre. You’ll Have to Go Elsewhere for Contrived Hype
No Tiger, Phil, Els, Dufner, Bradley or Sergio. Bubba Watson, the leader on Sunday morning was the winner on Sunday evening with a respectable 3 under 69. Anyone who had a legitimate chance to win had a less than stellar round.
20 year old Jordan Spieth was tied with Bubba to start the day, he would have been the youngest ever Masters champ, but he was out of it for most of the back nine. And as the kids say...'MEH'.
My favorite non-highlight was when Bubba drained a five foot par putt on 17, which preserved his 3 shot lead. He fist-pumped in celebration and the fist pump was replayed in super slo-mo from 4 different angles.
"HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT IN YOUR LIFE! YESSSSSIRR!!"
Full disclosure, a certain degree of this opinion is heavily influenced by a $25 bet I made in Vegas back in February. If Matt Kuchar won yesterday, I'd have pocketed $525. He started the day one stroke away, then was tied for the lead for almost a minute. After he four-putted the 4th green, I was in full on grumpy pants mode for the next two hours.
