“He’s pooping his pants,” one fan yelled as Sergio Garcia backed off a shot on 10. Garcia bogeyed 10, bogeyed 11, and, already down two strokes, bounced his drive off a tree and into the bushes on 13. Somewhere in that stretch, the same thought crossed the minds of every single person watching: He’s doing it again.
Sergio Garcia overcame choking an easy putt to win at 18 by beating Justin Rose in the first playoff hole to claim the Masters title and his first major championship after failing in his first 73 appearances.
Matt Kuchar aced Augusta National’s 16th today, elevating the PGA pro to third place at the Masters and completing the 11th hole-in-one on that hole in the past 14 years. His prize is some sunscreen.
Russell Henley got a nifty-looking hole-out with his approach shot on the par-four fifth hole during today’s fourth round of the Masters:
Phil Mickelson is the same guy on the golf course as off, meaning that he gambles no matter where he is. Wherever Phil lays his bets is his home.
It’s Masters Week, which means that it’s time again to school you in the strange ways of CBS announcer, burnt-toast enthusiast, and general glass-of-skim-milk-made-into-a-person Jim Nantz. Rick Maese of the Washington Post did an excellent deep dive on Nantz this week and it’s filled with all kinds of milquetoast…
Dustin Johnson, reigning U.S. Open champion and current No. 1-ranked golfer in the world, might have to miss this weekend’s tournament after he suffered a back injury at his rental home in Augusta, Ga.
Englishman Danny Willett won his first career major at the Masters yesterday, and nobody had more fun watching him do it than his brother P.J. We know this because P.J. has a Twitter account, and he’s not afraid to use it.
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.
You know that sickly feeling you get you’re watching a particularly violent scene in a horror movie that just goes on for way too long? That’s how watching Ernie Els seven-putt his way to a sextuple bogey on the first hole of the Masters will make you feel.
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:
Tiger Woods hit a bad golf shot at Augusta today, and then he said “dumbass” on TV.
Englishman Danny Willett had an opportunity to earn an eagle on the par-5 13th hole at the Masters today, and he converted it with a perfect, extremely long putt. Willett read the green perfectly.
Beginning tomorrow, ESPN will broadcast the first two rounds of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club, so during tonight’s NBA contest they ran a little promo for it. Unfortunately for ESPN and the Masters, play-by-play man Mike Breen went off-script and imagined a world in which Jeff Van Gundy was calling the…
Old man’s still got it. Jack Nicklaus got a hole-in-one on the fourth hole of today’s par-3 contest at the Masters. The Golden Bear’s 75 years old and still better than you.
By the time Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy won the 96th PGA Championship on Sunday, his second major in as many months and fourth overall, the man whose mantle he seems poised to assume had long since left the property. In 36 holes at Valhalla Golf Club, near Louisville, an ailing Tiger Woods scarcely threatened par,…
This is a remarkably well-done reimagining of The Masters in an infinitely more entertaining, putt-putt form. I would watch this. I would play this. I would wreck this.
Bubba Watson, everyone's favorite Southern chillbro golfer, won his second Masters in three years yesterday, and he celebrated the achievement exactly as you would expect him to. After claiming his second green jacket, Watson and his crew made a late-night Waffle House run, because Waffle House is a place for…
