No Masters chatter here? The back nine on Sunday afternoon at Augusta is the best sporting event of the year to me, and many who play golf. There's no one atop the leaderboard that I wouldn't be happy to see win, should be another great day to watch the best in the world at the most prestigious event in golf...

Glued to the TV now. Rooting for Jordan but, it might be a bit too much to make up. Well see.

First day I’ve sat and watched. Really like how few fans are there. Makes it more open and seems more respectful.

Was pulling for Spieth, but think he is out of it. Wouldn't mind to see Zalatoris make it interesting.

I just came inside from yard work...rain and heavy snow expected tonight and for the next couple days so we cleaned the garage and put a few things away.

But now relaxing in front of the TV to see how it plays out.

I’ve seen Matsuyama light it up before without winning - good to see him get another win, at the best major to boot. They say Japan will go crazy, good for them. And it was nice to see him show some emotion, I’ve never seen that from him. Great for Zalatoris, a future star. Speith is finally back. I feel for Schauffele, that’s going to mess with his head for a while, but hopefully it makes him tougher next time.

As always, the Masters is a wonderful Sunday afternoon! Just hope I get to go in person at least one more time, been trying since 1989...

As announced by Midpack, the back 9 did not disappoint. Thanks for bringing it up. I had it on my radar, but I probably would have missed half of it. I had some chores to do, but hey, I’m retired. They can wait until tomorrow. I settled in around 2:30 and watch the entire round of the last group. Good tv watching day.

I think it got a little sloppy at the end... it just goes to show you the esteem that the best in the world hold for The Masters.

We had taped it and were behnd real time and the tape ran out just as Matsuyama was hitting the bunker shot on 18, but thankfully we tape 60 Minutes as well so we got to see the end.

Undoubtedly. I kept telling DW, ‘can you imagine what’s going on in your head down the stretch in contention for a Masters win?’ It has to make your head spin, it would be hard to focus at all.

In the Butlers cabin interview, Nantz asked Hideki if he was nervous on the back nine? Hideki said no, I was nervous from the first tee on, though it didn’t show.

And Amanda Balionis interviewed Schauffele right after his round and asked him about his #16 blowup (ouch). He handled it with pure class, and I believe him when he says he’ll learn and get over it, and be better for it next time. Xander is going to have a great career too.

3rd golf game of the year for me...a local easy course. Played well at first in strong winds (40 kph gusting to 50) but collapsed on the back 9. 38 on the front was followed by 3 pars but then made 2 doubles and a triple over the last 6 holes and finished with an 81.

Typical Canadian weather, was 20C and sunny yesterday, woke up to -4 this morning.

^^^ Sounds familiar. I’ve started out great (for me) and fizzled more often than not lately. And historically I’ve scored better on the back. Would be nice if I could figure out how to keep the mo’ going...5 of last 7 rounds

38-41-79

39-44-83

36-43-79

39-43-82

39-42-81

My last round Wed was 40-41-81 with a double bogey on #9 and #18. Stupid game...

Those are pretty decent scores in my book. Shot an 82 on Monday and a 96 on Thursday. Same Indian and arrows, difference being a local well known muni and a tough newer and less played course, longer and narrower. Oh how I love this torture called golf !

I'm usually consistent front and back, this course is harder on the back but I also hit a couple bad shots at exactly the wrong time....and of course nothing is more fun than 3-putting after hitting a 3-iron to 4'
