On the 72nd hole of the tournament, Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera both hit what in separate years would have been Masters Moments™, instead they went to a historic playoff. This was the first time two players birdied 18 to force a playoff.
Adam Scott sank a huge birdie putt on 18 to push himself to -9 for the tournament and one stroke ahead of Angel Cabrera, unleashing the "come on, Aussie" celebration above. (It's also worth noting that Stevie has completely given up trying to give emotional high-fives.)
Barring a miraculous Tiger comeback or something extraordinary like Augusta being overtaken by Somali pirates, you can consider this the last post of the day on Easter Sunday. It's your Easter DUAN.
Like most casual golf fans in America, we spent most of the day yesterday away from the television but curious if Tiger Woods was going to win the U.S. Open. A victory by anyone else would elicit a shrug; a victory by Tiger would somehow matter more, as if we're enough of an expert in golf to understand what…
If you got points for impressive pars, it would've been Tiger Woods' day ... but the man couldn't squeeze a birdie out of his Sunday round to save his life. Angel Cabrera, who shot a very impressive 69, is your winner. Oh well. I'm sure he has a dad, too.
