    I do not play golf. I find it hard to watch.

    But there is something about watching the Masters.

    Who else watches this?

    Who will take it this year?

    Masters 2012: Peter Hanson Holds Off Charge By Phil Mickelson At Augusta National

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Phil Mickelson set off roars at Augusta National with a 20-foot eagle putt for a share of the lead, and an
    amazing flop shot behind the 15th green that only he would dare try.

    Peter Hanson answered with four birdies on his last five holes, claiming some of those cheers for himself and taking
    the outright lead Saturday in the Masters with a 7-under 65, the lowest score of the tournament.

    Like has already been mentioned, I watch it for the beauty of the course, and if you happen to see some good golf that's a bonus.

    Hubby shook hands with Mickelson when hubby was playing at a tournament at Phil's home course. Believe me, I hear about it very time Phil is on TV doing his commercial. "You know, I shook his hand." Now he does it just to piss me off.

    He also shook Newt's hand and I hear about that too.

    Yep. Any man willing to put up with more than 3 (mother, wife, and 1 daughter) needs to get his head checked.

    The irony of some named Bubba and something named The Masters coming together is humorous.

    Found myself really cheering for Oosthuisen only because of the ups sponsorship. Never knew of our sponsorship of him, only Westwood, I suppose that might be about to change, although they both played great. Anyway and to the point, once I became aware of Watson's story was very happy for him, well deserved and very earned. That second shot on the 2nd playoff hole was absolutely one for the ages.
