Jordan Spieth’s quadruple-bogey at Augusta National’s par-3 12 shocked viewers around the world and cost him the Masters. How could such an incredibly talented golfer melt down like that? We went back into the video to see exactly what happened—and found something bizarre.
Jordan Spieth lost the Masters by three strokes thanks to his collapse on the back nine, which included a quadruple bogey on a par 3. He recovered a bit and hit birdies on 13 and 15, but a bogey on 17 doomed him to a two-way tie for second with Lee Westwood. In the end, it was the worst collapse at the Masters since…
Jordan Spieth had a fairly comfortable lead through most of the final round of the Masters, until he inexplicably blew the first few holes of Augusta’s back nine. After hitting four straight birdies, Spieth bogied on holes 10 and 11. Then he did, well, this on 12, which was a Par 3.
This certainly isn’t something you see very often. Hitting on No. 16, Louis Oosthuizen’s drive found the green—and J.B. Holmes’s ball—before rolling in for a hole-in-one, and almost giving Holmes a “hole-in-one” too.
Holes-in-one for everyone! Moments after Shane Lowry’s eight-iron tee shot found the hole, veteran Davis Love III repeated the trick using a seven-iron. Who needs guys named Spieth or McIlroy?
Wonderfully profane Irishman Shane Lowry may be tied for 42nd place in this final round of the Masters, but he took home a special moment today on the 16th when he became the first in four years to hit a hole-in-one from that tee. He seems pretty excited.
Augusta National is turning the world’s best golfers into muni course hackers before our eyes. Here are the tournament leaders both playing the carom off the par-3 fourth hole seating section, bumper bowling-style.
Tiger Woods will be absent from Augusta National again as the four-time winner is simply too injured to compete, he announced tonight on his website. Let’s remember better times for Tiger:
21-year-old Jordan Spieth smashed Masters tournament records en route to his first major championship, shooting a 70 on the final day to finish 18 under par for the tournament. Spieth is only the fifth competitor to ever lead the Masters wire-to-wire.
Tiger Woods’s post-tournament interview on CBS featured one surprising revelation: that the four-time Masters champ dislocated his wrist after catching his club on a root early in the day, leading to “a bone popping out” but that “I put it back in.”
How much less enjoyable would it be to watch this clip of Phil Mickelson going to 12-under for the Masters and drawing even closer to tournament leader Jordan Spieth without the presence of CBS’s Verne Lundquist? Without Verne, it’s just a girthy man pumping his fists in the air.
Tiger Woods has actually been playing pretty decently at this year's Masters, but a rotten tee shot on today's par-5 13th left him dropping the old reliable "oh my fucking God" again. We'd say the same thing if, you know, we just hurled a club like that.
Henrik Stenson carded a six at Augusta National’s 15th during today’s second round of the Masters, thanks to a series of unfortunate events that included ricocheting a shot off the trunk of a tree. It so infuriated the Swede that he took his rage out on the responsible club.
Of all the things you expect to hear during the hours upon hours of televised Masters coverage, a story about Arnold Palmer taking a shit on a green during a tournament in Japan is not one of them. Thanks to Gary Player and Golf Channel, you can do exactly that.
So Tiger Woods backed out of the Masters this week after having a microdiscectomy operation on his spine. And, in accordance with how Tiger Woods conducts business, a gangbang of faceless agents and marketers came together on his behalf and posted a formal statement on his website about the withdrawal, which included…
Dan Jenkins's His Ownself: A Semi-Memoir was published last week, which is as good an excuse as any to go spelunking through the back pages of one of our finest and funniest sportswriters. Here's a classic from the April 1985 issue of Golf Digest, anthologized in Jenkins's Fairways and Greens. Reprinted here with…
Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature.
It's called Amen Corner, but today it's been devilish—even for the defending Masters champ.
