MASTERS

April 16, 2009 - Seth Staskey
First off, let me get it out of the way early, yes, my Masters pick was off.

However, not to be lost in that fact is that Tiger Woods did play pretty well for the most part, but golf is a game where you've got to be on par (no pun intended) each day for 18 holes. There were times when he lax on the greens and it cost him.

Anyway, enough about the guy who didn't win. Angel Cabrera has won twice in the United States and both are majors. That's pretty darn impressive to say the least. Talk about rising to the occasion he defines it. A guy who burst onto the scene at the U.S. Open of 2007 at Oakmont when he smoked a pack of cigarettes what seemed like on every hole. However, he's quit smoking now (which makes me quite happy because I am as anti as you're going to find), and he's winning again. His game is really suited for the majors. Hits the ball far, finds the fairways, avoids the sand and rough and putts well. He just kind of lingers around the leaderboard.

The question is did Cabrera win or did Perry and Campbell lose? I think you can make a case for both to be correct. Regardless, Cabrera has himself a Green Jacket and now owns two legs of the chase for all of the majors.

Now it's time to shift attention to the U.S. Open, which is slated for June 15-21 at Bethpage Black near New York City. Tiger will get back to his winning ways. He won the last time it was here on a public course. Look for the same thing to happen again.
