Final round of our championship. Who are you rooting for?
Tiger was my pick before the tournament started but he has struggled this week. Now I am rooting for Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler, or Jason Day -- Aka anyone but Phil.
For those who enjoyed the animated GIFs of Yu Darvish, Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera you might also enjoy this animated GIF of Tiger Wood's golf swing through the years. It is interesting to watch his swing take some significant changes as he changed swing coaches. Link? LINK
It's Sunday at the Masters. This is as good as it gets! The leaders don't tee off until 2:40 PM, but the "contenders" start going off at around 1:40 or so.
America's Brandt Snedeker and Argentina's Angel Cabrera lead the tournament at -7. Adam Scott is one back at -6, followed by Marc Leishman and Jason Day at -5. Matt Kuchar is at -4, and at -3 sit Tiger Woods and Tim Clark. Other notable players are: Rickie Fowler -2, Steve Stricker -2, Jim Fyurk -2, Fred Couples +1, Bubba Watson +2, Jason Dufner +2, Dustin Johnson +2, Rory McIlroy +4, Phil Mikelson +9, and 14 year old Tianlang Guan at +12.
There have been some incredible storylines so far this year, and it seems like this final round has packed everything you could possibly want into one. You have the past champion (Angel Cabrera), the redemption story (Brandt Snedeker), and of course Tiger Woods. Though he was assessed a controversial two stroke penatly after Friday's round, he sits only 4 shots back going into today's round.
As for the weather, today is colder, and the course will be playing a bit softer than usual, which could cause for some early good scores, like Bill Haas, -2 through 3 holes. There looks like there is rain headed Augusta's way, but you never know with weather.
Hope everyone enjoys this final round, and if you can't make it to a tv, there is some great stuff HERE on the Masters website
Dave Brandon and Mark Hollis have set the date for Round 2 of their (now annual?) golf match for July 24 at a to-be-determined course in Ann Arbor. Last year Hollis' team won in Lansing at Eagle Eye when Hollis' partner closed out the match on the first playoff hole.
I think this is a pretty neat thing they have going on and it seems like they will continue to do it each spring. I'd bet Brandon has been working on his game and hopefully he and whoever he chooses to play with this year can even the score.

Rodriguez available to caddie
Former West Virginia coach on bag for friend at Greenbrier Classic Monday
By Jim Workman

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS — He may be out of work until his television career as a football analyst with CBS Sports begins this fall.
But former West Virginia University and University of Michigan head football coach Rich Rodriguez knows how to spend his idle time.
He’s in town for The Greenbrier Classic.
Monday, he actually caddied for his friend Dave Alvarez in a Pro-Am golf event on The Old White TPC.
“Some of my good buddies knew that I needed work,” he said with a grin. “I work pretty cheap right now.
“I don’t know how I’ll do (as a caddie),” he said just before the round began. “I’m sweating already. I’ll probably get fired after about six holes.
“I had a chance to come down here for a couple of days. I’m getting ready to go to Oklahoma to do a TV shoot with (Sooners head football coach) Bob Stoops. I wanted to be around another day and see the facility and hang out with my friends.
“It's going to be fun.”
