I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the biggest golf fan ever, but for some reason I'm always drawn in to the last 18 holes of The Masters.

That said, the shot Bubba Watson hit on the second playoff hole was one of the best shots I have ever seen in my life. Nice to see a guy with no "official" training win the biggest golf tournament out there. Guess the sport doesn't need Tiger to win every week after all.

My joke to the one friend I have that follows golf is that Tiger sure played better when he was banging 20 whores and cheating on his wife. He should re-marry and cheat just to get his game back.

Pretty crazy that Oosthuizen got an albatross and yet Bubba's shot will be remembered as the greatest shot of the tournament.

Or maybe it does.


    With Woods completely out of contention during Sunday’s final round and on the way to his worst finish at Augusta National since turning pro, CBS viewership tanked to its lowest preliminary TV ratings since 2004, according to Bloomberg.

I think both Oosthuizen's albatross and Watson's shot in the playoff will be shown for years and years, much like we all can picture Larry Mize's chip shot to win in 1987.

To be fair, all Oosthuizen was trying to do was get that on the green and the fact that it went into the hole was pretty much pure luck. Bubba's shot on 10 had a much higher degree of difficulty to accomplish what was intended.
