I WAS DRIVING EASTBOUND ON I-64 during the final round of the 2019 Masters. I had attended my aunt's funeral in southern Indiana. Now my wife and I were heading home to Virginia after a difficult and emotional week for our family.

Somewhere east of Louisville my cousin called.

"Hey, are you watching the Masters?"

My wife and I laughed. Yes, we are.

I had the live stream on my phone perched between us on the console. I could easily listen to Jim Nantz and others describe the action as the contenders navigated Amen Corner and the finishing holes. But it was hard to watch the Masters while I drove the interstate. I tried, though, stealing glances at a putt, a tee shot, a pitch. My wife kept telling me to watch the road. I am, I am, I said.

As Tiger Woods later said in Butler Cabin, the...

I'VE BEEN ABSENT FOR AWHILE, away from home and taking a break from this blog. But now I'm back, and perhaps like you, I'm keeping an eye on the Masters.

Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are the first-round leaders at 6-under 66. Phil Mickelson is one shot back after a scrambling 67. Scoring was impressive on a good weather day at Augusta National.

BEN CRENSHAW MET TOM KITE in Austin, Texas, when they were kids in the early 1960s. A long friendship and Hall of Fame careers followed.

Here's a short excerpt from Melanie Hauser's feature at PGATOUR.COM:
Ben and Charlie Crenshaw were headed across the parking lot at old Austin Country Club off Riverside Drive, ready to take on the back nine. They were dressed in T-shirts and cutoffs and had their well-worn golf bags – filled with collections of mismatched ladies and junior clubs – slung across their shoulders.
It was the summer of '62. Ben was 10; Charlie was 11. They were inseparable back then, whether it was on the golf course, playing baseball or just hanging out. Two brothers, two best friends growing up in Austin in the '60s; two pretty good athletes just...​

GOLF CHANNEL ACADEMY LEAD COACH Jill Finlan Scally demonstrates how full swings with feet together can help balance.

I like this drill and the idea behind it. I don't know about you, but for me this technique has been around (and something I've used) since I played junior golf decades ago. And not just how Jill presents it.

In the past, when I've struggled with various aspects of my swing, I've often narrowed my stance or brought my feet together to improve balance and tempo, shorten my golf swing and regain control.

Sometimes I've gone to a narrow stance mid-round as a desperate measure. Whether on course or during practice, this adjustment can lead to smoother swings and more solid golf shots.

MATCH PLAY, AS DAVID FEHERTY OPINES, is a different game within the game. Of course, he's right.

I like match play for the same reasons I like March Madness. Just about anything can happen on any given day, or over 18 holes. That's a big part of what makes sports so compelling. I certainly don't mind an upset and have been known to root for the underdog.

The WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play begins on Wednesday at Austin Country Club. The field of 64 features the top players in the world, including Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods.

Golf Channel and NBC will provide live TV and streaming coverage.

I RAN ACROSS THIS CLIP from The Players Championship. Tiger Woods answered the question with good humor.

The career wins (major and other) of Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, the two greatest players of their eras, are pretty similar overall and miles ahead of everyone else.

So, who's the GOAT? And what's your criteria?

(I know Tiger isn't finished. He might bag a few more wins.)

I've often noticed that one's answer to this question depends on their age. There's a generational bias.
