I Want the Green Jacket

It’s no secret I’ve never graced the beautiful and perfectly manicured greens along side the sandy bunkers at Augusta National Golf Club… ahhh, the MASTERS. This invitation-only tournament is to golf as the Super Bowl is to football. While there are several parallels, there are also differences – the biggest one that stands out to me is the fact that the winner is the one that emerges with the lowest score which is the opposite of sports I love like football, basketball and baseball. But hey, you get to win and wear that really cool green jacket; and a ton of money.

I won’t pretend to know a lot about golf and I don’t have much in common with the sport, other than the fact that the course has sand like where I live at the beach. 😉 Other than putt-putt golf I’ve attempted golf twice – once in 1991 and then again in 2014 and suffice it to say I faired (pun intended) much better last year than the first time.

Jordan Spieth

This year’s story is 21 year old Jordan Spieth who is currently 14    under par after 36 holes – a record in MASTERS tourney history. That’s it. That’s all I know.

Oh, and 75 year old golf legend, Jack Nicklaus had a hole-in-one during the Par 3 rounds. So, as you can see below Nicklaus and I have something in common.
