Well, that was a thrilling finish! Last night when I was writing my preview post for today, the headline I had type was: “One for the ages.” For some reason, I changed it, but turned out, this Masters really was one for the ages.
Thanks so much for tweeting your questions. FYI, we started answering them around the 22 minute mark.
As you know, Adam Scott rolled a 12-footer on the second playoff hole to beat Angel Cabrera and become the first Australian to win The Masters.
I was joined by Oliver Horovitz, author of An American Caddie in St. Andrews, and my roommate Carson Griffith, a freelance journalist who was previously the senior gossip columnist for the New York Daily News.
Carson had never watched a golf tournament in her life until Thursday and she was a very diligent student. She didn’t mess around, either. While she was visibly bored the first three days (because it’s not exciting for the average fan or non-golf geeks until Sunday on the back nine), she stuck with it every round.
Carson actually adds great insight to the Hangout. I can’t get over it. I feel like a proud parent!
Thanks for watching!
P.S. Wow, I lost it a long time ago. I definitely need to get some sleep because I didn’t know what I was talking about when I said my favorite shot was Adam Scott’s shot on no. 12 — I meant no. 13, but that wasn’t it, anyway. Obviously it was Adam’s putt on 18 in regulation.
