I was opened minded about her at the start of the season; since then, pfffttt!
Even the media is looking the other way...she came in near dead last in the season's first Major...For just getting her card and blasting everyone else off the course during Q-school, there lies the difference between the rookies and the pros....

I missed it watching the Mavs abortion, but I'm pretty sure I DVR'd it. Nice.

And to focus on the Masters:

I figured it's not worth it to start its own thread with four holes to go, but the Open is getting intense. Goggin and Watson are both at -2 after 14, Westwood at -2 after 15.

Watson's on the green on 15 while Goggin rolled it into the same bunker that Westwood did.

That pin placement on 15 was brutal, looked like both Westwood and Goggin had a shot at an ace, and ended up in that bunker, almost identical shots.

Nice for Cink, too bad for Watson.

$1.2M for Cink, a not too shabby $777K for Watson...who now gets to stay there and take on the old guys in the Senior British Open this week...

I caught the end where Watson missed the put for par. Bummer.

Never would have thought someone with his experience putting that poorly for the win. Goes to show that nerves can get the best of us from time to time. You could see it in the follow through, he slowed down which usually means lack of confidence.

Nothing against TW, but that was one of the worst putts from a pro in that situation I've ever seen. Must get the ball past the hole...his putt never had a chance.

But he was so unlucky with his approach shot. He almost hit it too well and it carried on to the green. And for someone who is one of the best at chipping and little punch shots, very surprised he went with the putter, though maybe not considering the green back there was sloping downhill towards the cup.

Not sure if I'm in the majority, but I hope Tiger can figure his game out. To me he almost looks like he's swinging so freaking hard. He could learn so much (I think) from watching someone like Tom Watson. Everything is cool, steady, great balance. Then watch Tiger swing in the tee box and it's like he's trying to hit it to the moon.

Until he figures out how to get off the tee better, Tiger can't really be a lock for any tourney. He's that good to still win them all, but not in the dominating fashion he's used to. I have confidence he will figure it out, maybe in another 2-3 years and he'll be unstoppable again.

If he can get Watson's steady play and cool demeanor, watch out!

I agree. That putt was the equivalent of tossing up an air ball from the free throw line late in a playoff game. I did not think he would drain the putt, but I did not think he'd short arm it like that.

As for Woods, I expect more consistency next season when the surgery is that much further behind him. For now, as he's shown, he can step up and win a big tourney, or miss the cut altogether, and that sort of wild inconsistency is truly uncharacteristic for him.

Watson was shooting not to lose: he got scared at the thought of rolling it too far past and not even making the playoff. That thought is a killer for a golfer, a sign that you're overthinking it. He hit it to ensure he wouldn't three-putt, and that's what cost him.

I would have loved to see THE WAT! pull that one out, but I'm glad Cink got his first major. I've always liked the guy. This will be one of those tournaments we remember more for the loser than the victor though.

Yeah, you kind of wish Cink could be the story of his first major.
