Major Pressure


The first major golf championship of the year, the Masters, took its toll on a lot of good golfers in today's final round. Tiger and Phil, who were paired together, made a great run today. They put themselves squarely in the middle of the fray with a few holes to play. Uncharacteristically, Tiger faded down the stretch, bogeying the final two holes. Phil also came up short with a bogey late. This left Cof C member, Kenny Perry...Texan, Chad Campbell...and Argentinian, Angel Cabrera to slug it out in a playoff. Kenny had a two stroke lead with two holes to play, but bogeys on both holes brought him back to the playoff with the other two. I was really pulling for my Christian brother, Perry, who at 48, would be the oldest major championship winner ever. It was just disheartening to see him unable to hit the shots he needed when he needed to do so over the last few holes. Campbell also missed a playoff putt. This all led to Cabrera holding up under the pressure to hang on for the victory. Congratulations to him...he won a hard earned victory. Blessings,
