    Golf

    What an exciting finish to the Barclays final round! Wow!

    Very exciting 'Masters' Tournament!

    Schwartzel wins the Masters after a wild day - Yahoo! News

    Schwartzel became the first champion in Masters history to close with four straight birdies, the capper to a final round like no other at Augusta National.
    Tiger Woods charged. Rory McIlroy collapsed. And just about everyone else seemed to have a chance to win on the back nine.
    "There's so many roars that go on around Augusta," Schwartzel said. "It echoes through those trees. There's always a roar. Every single hole you walk down, someone has done something.
    At one point or another, eight different players had at least a share of the lead. The list included Woods, making a fist-pumping, swaggering charge up the board. And Adam Scott, deftly carving up the greens with that long putter of his. And Jason Day, a Masters rookie who played like he owns the place. And Geoff Ogilvy, ripping off five birdies in a row on the back side. And Luke Donald, hitting the flag stick with a shot off one leg, then chipping in from the front of the green with his final swing.
    ----------------

    I was hoping either one or the other of the Australians would win as they were SO close, but was happy with the result.

    Re: Golf

    Darren Clarke won the British Open. Rain and wind followed the Golfers. It looked like Phil Mickelson had a chance as he did great in the front nine, he tied with Darren Clarke. Things went downhill in the back nine though. It looked like Dustin Johnson had a good chance as well, but it wasn't to be either.

    Re: Golf

    Phil Mickelson will be teeing off very soon! I hope he does well today.

    My husband says I shouldn't keep cheering, it puts Phil off. Still a friendly bickering around here about Tiger vs. Phil, even though Tiger didn't make the cut after Friday.

    Phil still 'even' after third. I'm going to have to shout and cheer louder, I guess.

    I was wishing SO hard that Phil would make the Eagle, but alas, it didn't happen. I'm ready to cry.

    I don't operate that way, Vautrin. I don't even watch a Sport unless I have a favourite or in the past, had a small bet on a sport.

    Phil just made a birdie and is -2.

    Re: Golf

    Phil made par for the next two holes.

    Okay, Vautrin, I'll listen and bend a little! You always make me think to improve my ways.

    Jason Dufner, who has never won a championship, along with two others, is on top. He hasn't started his round yet.

    He was interviewed and asked why he stays so laid back. He said he doesn't get stressed because "stress stresses me out," he replied.

    If Phil doesn't get close, I will root for Jason. How's that, Vautrin?

    I refuse, at this time, to bend any farther.

    That is some improvement. As long as the best player wins, it is fine with me.

    Hmmmmm, that could be exciting as well.Please explain your process and I'll try and find a tournament to watch.

    Wing Picking....

    1. Check the layout
    2. Re-Check the layout
    3. Have a practise pick, be sure not to touch the wings
    4. Repeat the above step
    5. Pick the wing, stand, stare and see where the wing falls
    6. Blame Caddie, aka "Wing Picker Tool Carrier" for your doing a poor pick
    7. Walk a damn long way looking for the next dead fly to pick the wings off
    8. Repeat the process and cease picking after the 18th fly.

    As you can see, playing golf and picking the wings off dead flies are very similar in many aspects.

    I've got to see if I can find a television channel here to watch the tournament you mentioned.

    Its probably on Fox Sports right after the "Pink Belt Ballet Dancing" and the Top 40 Singles rerun, for 1936.

    Both are prime vewing material

    I'm sure learning a lot about the beautiful continent of Australia, having watched the "Australian Open" and most of "The President's Cup". Since it's such a time difference here, the I have yet to watch the last match.
