    Looking forward to a tournament where they don’t let the mashed potatoes fly ruining the viewing experience. While I do not agree with everything the Men of the Masters do, they control the Patrons quite well.

    The weekend of the Masters is the same weekend I’ll be heading to DC. My uncle is being laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. He passed in November of 2019 and Covid delayed his burial. When they announced that he was being buried on 4/14 there was no way I was going to miss it, Covid or not. I’ll have to quarantine when I get back but it’s worth it. I’m bringing my 14 year old daughter, she only met him once but no way I’d let her miss this. Some things in life are just can’t miss moments.

    I can't wait, always my favorite Major. I know most of the holes now like the back of my hand.

    DJ pulled himself out of the Valero tourney this coming weekend. Don't think he will be at full speed for The Masters. Spieth always plays Augusta pretty good. However, he seems to have lost his ability to putt under pressure. Have seen a lot of "no names" on the leaderboards. We could end up with a winner whose name if totally unfamiliar to us... who asks to trade the Green Jacket for a paisley wife-beater tee shirt. I plan to watch, at least Saturday and Sunday, wall to wall.

    That's going to be really special, BJ13. I'll be thinking about you two.
    I was thinking the same thing. That's why I tossed in Cameron Smith and Viktor Hovland in my picks.

    I was born a Masters week baby, so there’s nothing that can stop me from eating cake and watching the weekend, you can sit and watch with, but be quiet!!!

    The par 3 is always one of the highlights for me, and its not being held again... bummer!

    In my experience men who wear Paisley don’t have ... traditional.... wives.
    Yes it’s a culture appropriation. Or a signal or something like that.
    Kind of like 80’s mustaches

    Now, this could lead to an interesting discussion. What is the definition of a "traditional" wife? Kept 'barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen'? Now, my wife is blonde. After 55 years with that beautiful, patient lady I can attest "blonde" is far from what I would call "traditional". If you've spent any time around a blonde, pretty soon you realize you have to learn to interpret and speak a totally different language. And, it takes years to learn "blonde". By that time, the attempt to converse with a blonde has had a detrimental effect on how you even think and rationalize!!! :D:D:D

    Lol, traditional = a Wife that was born as a girl.

    At my last job, the boss was a guy with a alternative lifestyle... wore a lot of paisley shirts. We ‘uns decided that was a thing.
    Nice shirts though. Kinda afraid to wear one .

    I think I have a paisley tie, somewhere. Maybe I'll dig that out and wear it with a golf shirt tomorrow. See what reaction the geezers have!!! :>)

    With Spieth winning today, I had to put him in the mix. Spieth has always played Augusta well. If his flatstick is working again, he could contend. Didn't know whether to dump Fleetwood or Rahm. Betting on Rahm either WD'ing due to an early baby or having his mind more on home than on golf. Stayed with Fleetwood.

    After 28 years with a blonde, I can 100% confirm this.

    Spieth not having a good day. My Fleetwood pick isn't working out. Should have kept Rahm and dumped Fleetwood. Rose tearing it up. Too bad I didn't take him.

    Enjoying watching DeChambeau suffering. ( I shouldn't be that way.) He puts a new driver in the bag the days before The Masters. And... it's all over the course.

    My buddy Reed doing okay. If Spieth can get his act together, he along with Reed and JT should help me out with the coffee cup challenge.

    • Spieth triples a hole and still is one of the few under par. He's missed a couple putts he should have made. Still with the triple on his card, he shows he could contend.
    • DeChambeau looked totally out of it, mentally. Had trouble off the tee and around the green. Has lots of work to do if going to be in the running on Sunday.
    • DJ would need a huge run to compete. Back in the pack.
    • Rose played a different game, today, than anyone else in the field. Can he repeat three more days?
    • As much as I enjoy Michelson, he just needs to wait and join the senior tour.

    He already did. But as a past Masters champion he's allowed to play it for the rest of his life.
