POLL: Who is going to win the 2016 Masters?

April 10th, 2016

Jordan Spieth is leading and is trying to become just the fourth player in history to win back-to-back Masters. But will he do it? There are certainly some good players chasing. Here is the leader board: McIlroy sits at two over in T-11 so he has a chance, but with 10 players ahead of him, it would seem unlikely. Nevertheless, we want to hear from you: Who’s winning this thing?

Masters Sunday! What a wonderful day. Except it’s going to be a slightly different kind of wonderful this year because the forecast calls for some rather chilly weather.

Golf-’Jordan and Rory’ show fails to deliver at the Masters (Reuters)

April 10th, 2016

By Mark Lamport-Stokes AUGUSTA, Georgia, April 9 (Reuters) – The “Jordan and Rory” show was the hottest ticket at the Masters on Saturday with the defending champion and a four-times major winner paired together for the third round but it failed to live up to its billing. American world number two Jordan Spieth largely fulfilled his side of the bargain as he retained a one-shot lead in the year’s opening major but Rory McIlroy struggled to find any spark on a brutal day for scoring in strong gusting winds. Watched by huge galleries at Augusta National, Spieth and third-ranked Northern Irishman McIlroy generated plenty of buzz when they teed off but, by the time they finished in the Georgian twilight, there was a palpable sense of anti-climax.

Did playing with Jordan Spieth psych-out Rory McIlroy?

April 9th, 2016

It’s hard to believe that less than two years ago Rory McIlroy was the undisputed king of golf. No one was really even that close. He had won the British Open, after all, and then followed it with a victory at the PGA Championship. 2014 was to be the year Rory owned it all. But then it wasn’t. Jordan Spieth came along and won the Masters, then the U.S. Open, and then came close at the British Open. That was followed by Jason Day claiming the PGA Championship. Suddenly, Rory was the third in a group of three. Getty Being the prodigious, competitive athlete he is, Rory didn’t like it. The signs were subtle but the theme of his comments were clear. “It’s always nice to have people pushing you, and I feel like he’s one of the guys doing that right now,” Rory said before the U.S. Open. “I’ll tell you at the end of the week,” he said when asked who was the better player before the PGA Championship. “I was a part of the narrative instead of being the narrative,” he said after the second round at this year’s Masters. “I like that.” Jordan Spieth doesn’t engage whenever he’s asked about it in return. “I’d rather be playing with someone less threatening to be honest,” was his latest line when asked about his Saturday pairing with McIlroy. Getty) This all has to do with where each player gets their motivation. Spieth’s is clearly more internal: He wants to do his thing in his way for his own reasons. Talk of a rivalry, if it has any effect at all, isn’t useful to him so he avoids it. Rory is the opposite. He seems to draw his motivation from external factors. He’s an alpha dog, and when a guy like Spieth ascends onto his pedestal, it doesn’t sit well. Except recently, it seems like that mindset is getting him into trouble. You can't tell me Spieth isn't in Rory's head a bit. Imagine hitting it by someone 50 yards on every hole, and he still runs away from you. — Kevin Van Valkenburg (@KVanValkenburg) April 9, 2016 Rory came barrelling onto the course on Saturday, ready for his pairing with Spieth. At times he looked to even play a touch faster than usual, as if he were trying to up the tempo on Jordan, who became visibly frustrated on Friday when officials told him he was playing too slow. But it was McIlroy who suffered. His 4-5-5 start turned his one shot deficit into three when Spieth started 4-4-4, and it resulted in a disappointing birdie-less 77. Rory can’t help but try to engage Spieth in a showdown but Jordan simply won’t take the bait. Spieth just plods along, focusing on himself, making pars and birdies as Rory flails around, struggling to sink his competitive hooks into anything. In trying to show who’s better, all he succeeds in doing is proving the opposite. There’s no one better than Rory when he’s firing on all cylinders, but for him to prove that, he first needs to find a way to get Spieth out of his head.

Jim Nantz’s interview with Masters rookie Smylie Kaufman was an absolute gem

April 9th, 2016

Smylie Kaufman shot up to second place on Saturday at the Masters after a good round in windy conditions. His three-under 69 featured four birdies and a host of other impressive shots from the Masters rookie, but the most entertaining moment of the day came in his interview with Jim Nantz after his round. It started with Nantz asking the 24-year-old Smylie about his living situation, which has been a funny story making the rounds recently: Smylie has made about $2 million this season, but he still lives with his parents. Smylie said he’s looking for a house, but told Nantz he’s “really indecisive.” Nantz then asked if Smylie has a car. He does! It’s a 2008 Nissan that “drives nice.” The whole thing ended with Smylie mispronouncing Jim Nantz’s first name. He might be saying “Jim” and just have a southern accent, but in my expert opinion, it sounds a bit more like “Jay” or “Jack.” Let’s decide this with a poll.

58-year-old Bernhard Langer has a legitimate chance to win the Masters

Bernhard Langer is 10 years older than the combined age of Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. His first Masters win was 31 years ago, and his most recent came the same year Spieth was born. But Langer still has it. On a day when the wind was causing everybody trouble, Langer birdied the second, fifth, eighth, 13th, 14th, and 15th holes to vault him all the way up to T-2.

Masters bro with tons of beer cups accidentally photobombs Jordan Spieth

April 9th, 2016

Speak to any golf fan and they’ll tell you that the Masters’ beer cups are prized possessions. They’re so in-demand that it’s not uncommon for college students going to the Masters to keep them and use them for other things, like beer pong (according to sources…). Anyway, that’s the plan this guy was hatching as he watched Spieth play on Saturday at the Masters. Imported beers come in green cups and domestic ones are see-through, so judging by this picture, it looks like he has eight imported and five domestic.
