Masters

first_imgLast week another young, relatively unknown, pro-golfer put his name on the winner’s list at the Masters Tournament.  The winner was 28-year old Danny Willett of England.  This is his first Major Championship, although on the European Tour, he has been a winner the last few years.  As fate would have it, Willett would not have been at the Masters if his 2-week old son had been born on his due date–which was the final day of the Masters.  He had planned to stay in England if the baby would not have come early.The runner-up was Jordan Speith.  The 22-year old defending champion was very gracious in defeat.  If you follow golf, you know the defending champion places the winning Green jacket on the new champion.  Speith lost his chance to win back-to-back Masters by taking a 7 on a par 4 12th hole.  In a matter of 15 minutes, he went from a 5 stroke lead to a 1 stroke deficit.last_img
