Golf is back if Tiger stays healthy. Love it. I was a decent athlete... but I think a 5 foot putt with something riding on it is the hardest sports related thing I've done. It's a great game for building pressure.

I have been watching Tiger. Amazing after multiple back surgeries and a spinal fusion. Hoe he stays in the top 10.

Saturday's weather may be a big problem for Round 3.

I was a solid golfer with a 7 handicap and three hole in ones, but what these kids are doing is amazing.

My husband, whom I often accompanied on the links as he liked to walk and carry, had achieved scores typically in the 70's after retirement here, but arthritis related to his auto-immune syndrome sidelined him permanently from the game. He, too, likes to watch and marvel over some of the shots made on the tour.

I haven't been this interested in a final round in years. They truly are amazing. I played 2 courses after majors and the greens were nearly unplayable. I was never a very good player... except for the occasional miracle. A bogey golfer. I always thght that I'd take it up later after I was finished playing tennis. It just took so damn long to play a round. So I only played a couple of times a year. The scramble players loved me... lol. Anyway... I still really appreciate the skill. There are obviously other games that test your nerve and composure and belief. But never really felt the same pressure as golf... probably because I wasn't as good at it as other games. I grew up playing darts, snooker, wrestling, and tennis so those didn't affect me much. I loved team sports... but they aren't the same as individual sports unless they reach the highest levels. Oh well... just a lot of jibberish to show my appreciation of a sport that I love and never came close to mastering. I never cared about the player's personal life's beyond crimes against humanity. I'm just really pleased to see Tiger back and somewhat healthy. There are only a few athletes who's careers I've enjoyed as much as his. I feel very thankful.

The couples visiting this weekend were glued to the coverage on Sunday. What incredible golfers and class acts. I loved the game of golf, but just like I messing with people here, I cherished messing with people in our money games. There is nothing finer than sinking a twenty foot putt on the 18th hole when all the bets had been doubled and tripled, and the pressure was on.......I lived for those moments. The only problem is that golf players play with handicaps, and in my experience after 15 years of playing some pretty steep money games, I had an honest handicap and lost in most of those years to people who ethically think it is ok to fudge on a handicap. What I love about the masters, is the course, the traditions, and the level playing field without handicap. It was a magical weekend with lots of laughs about what I had done to other golfers over the years.
