Trip Down Magnolia Lane
The year's first Major is here and the anticipation builds as to who's going to be the player who can keep his nerves and mind under control to be able to put on the Green Jacket after winning The Masters.
We know the course layout so well after watching the tournament year after year, but it never fails to deliver when it comes to seeing great golf shots and never becomes boring to watch. We hear a lot about getting the ball in the correct place to hit the next shot otherwise it becomes an almost impossible shot to get close to the hole with the slopes and speed of the greens. It is as much about course management as it is about anything else.
Jordan Spieth said he was just trying to hit a little cut into the flag on the 12th hole, as we know the ball ended up in the water on his way to a 7 on the par 3. If he had been thinking correctly he would've hit a draw into the middle of the green and not even thought about going for the flagstick and he would have kept his lead.
Danny Willett took advantage of the situation and hit great shots with clear thinking to become Masters Champion. Who knows what lies ahead this weekend, I do know however that it will be enjoyable to watch just as it always is.
