For the next two days I will be randomly presenting different top-notch golfers and explaining why these guys have a chance to win the Masters over anyone else in the field. Mostly, this will just be stupid "stats" that really don't matter once the golfers tee it up Thursday morning. To recap, skip everything I'm about to write. Anyway, it's Geoff Ogilvy's turn.
Wanna know something crazy? The Masters has been going on since 1934 and no Australian has ever left wearing green. Greg Norman is the one to blame for most of this, but nobody else can say they made much of a run either. Geoff Ogilvy, among a few others, is part of a new age Australian run, with more and more dudes coming from down under that can play. Why does he have a good shot at winning the Masters, you ask? Well, let me explain....
Maybe the only young guy to have won a major - Ok, I know Schimeckelson handed him the U.S. Open, but Ogilvy still played well enough that week to get himself into position. Maybe he isn't considered a "young gun," but he is one of the guys people are expecting to continue winning over the next few years. Experience in the major championship situation can't help.
I like Him - I know that by capitalizing the "Him" it looks like I'm talking about God or Jesus or whoever, but I did it on accident and kinda liked it. I think Geoff Ogilvy is a good golfer, and has a pretty cool demeanor under pressure. Also, I like the guy. So, start your own golf blog and tell me you hate him and I'll read it with wide eyes.
(Also, added comment about Geoff - doesn't it look like this guy has ENORMOUS Shaq-like feet? His feet looks almost too big for his body. Can someone find out his shoe size?)
