Masters Tournament Recap
Let's rewind a couple weekends, and talk about an incredible weekend of golf -- The Masters Tournament at Augusta National. Golfer or not, I am sure you have heard some of the coverage of the results of that day; where a man, named Tiger Woods, who was ranked 1,199th in the World Golf Rankings in December of 2017, jumped up to 6th place after winning the Masters. In my eyes, this is one of the most prolific comebacks in sports history.
This was a man who did not know if he would ever play again. A man who chipped like some of those that I play with (not mentioning any names!). A man who has been through numerous personal issues. A man who has now become the 2019 Masters Champion. As a person who has followed his career since he was an amateur golfer, this is simply amazing. I still remember that epic and dominate finish watching that Sunday in '97 when he won his first green jacket. I was an at home with my father, and what an amazing moment Tiger shared with his own family after the victory. In 1997, he and his father embraced just north of the 18th green. Fast-forward to 2019, Tiger was able to embrace his son after winning his 5th green jacket. Followed by hugging his mother, daughter, and friends that came to support him.
Like I said in a Facebook post last week, love him or hate him, this man has done great things in the world of golf. Time will only tell, but in my mind, this is the #1 moment of the Masters Tournament in its history.
With all that being said, I wanted to chat about some upcoming events we have coming up, which may help you improve your golf game and maybe even help you stage your own comeback, similar to Tiger!
