So, I picked Geoff Ogilvy to win in my Deadspin Masters Preview and like I said, I pick winners about as often as Ian Poulter looks normal.
The announcers on ESPN just mentioned that Ogilvy has not made a birdie all week. Yeah, awesome.
Also, the announcers are doing my favorite thing possible in golf to Tiger Woods on his last two tee shots - questioning his complaining after the shot "didn't look so bad." Can I tell all golfers out there something just to keep in the back of your head from here on? When you're playing with a golfer better than you, and he hits a shot that he isn't happy with, it doesn't matter if you'd be happy with the result, they aren't. Just because you've never hit a wedge from 120 yards to 20 feet doesn't make it alright to say, "Why are you bitching about that, it wasn't that bad?" It gets REALLY annoying.
Ok, sorry for the mini-rant, I just hate that so much. Tiger hits two drives right, his miss off the tee, and isn't very happy about that.
Speaking of El Tigre, it is about that time for him to nap or get off of my couch. He is in that "hanging around" mode when it looks like everyone else is taking advantage of decent Augusta conditions. I guess you could argue that Tiger is probably trying to make as many birdies as possible, so I'm sure blogging about it won't boost his motivation. If it does, you're welcome Mr. Woods.
Also, if you want to know how fast the greens are at Augusta, check this - one of the amateurs just had the ball move as he was attempting to ground his putter and Phil Mickelson had to hover his putter on 18 because he said it was so fast the ball might move. Tough course.
