Fantastic reporting by SI’s Michael Bamberger on the series of events that led to the Tiger Woods rules snafu on the 15th hole in the second round of the Masters last month. Turns out the “television viewer” that called Fred Ridley, the tournament’s competition committee chairman — and ultimately saved Woods’ from disqualification for taking an improper drop — was Champions Tour player David Eger, according to Bamberger: (continue reading…)
Tiger Woods’ former caddie Stevie Williams chimed in on Tiger’s improper drop controversy in the second round of the Masters, which resulted in a two-shot penalty. New Zealand’s 3News caught up with Williams, who is now Adam Scott’s looper, after he landed from the long journey back from Augusta.
Stevie just can’t help himself. (continue reading…)
On Wednesday, Masters champ Adam Scott went on CBS This Morning with Charlie Rose and Gayle King to talk about his incredible victory. When King brought up his looks, Scott said it’s “embarrassing but flattering.”
He added: “I’m not single at all. I’m very much in a relationship and very happy at the moment.” (continue reading…)
As you know, Adam Scott won his first major and became the first Australian to win The Masters, which is beyond ginormous for the country.
Lucky for you — as the regular viewers of our show know — Luke Elvy, is an Australian golf commentator, who knows Scotty as well if not better than anyone in the media. He provides fantastic analysis and knowledgeable insight into Scott’s victory that you won’t get anywhere else.
In a sit-down interview with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi, Masters champ Adam Scott talks about capturing his first major.
And yes, the quote in the headline (around the 2:50 minute mark) is referring to the same Open Championship where Scott led by four with four to play, and did not take home the Claret Jug.
While his comment makes him seem a bit delusional, it also makes him all the more likable.
There’s that moment on Masters Sunday when no matter how badly you have to go to the bathroom or grab another beer, you’re glued to your seat and fixated on watching the 18th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. And then, out of nowhere, Adam Scott drills a 30-footer for birdie on the 72nd hole to fire a three-under 69 and move to nine-under.
If you don’t think Adam Scott is attractive, you need to get your eyes checked. And that doesn’t just go for women. I’m talking to you, too, guys! You need to get your head checked if you can’t admit the 2013 Masters champion is handsome.
Two things: 1) There were just a few photographs taken of Scotty making two clutch putts to become the first Australian to win at Augusta National in the tournament’s 77-year history; and 2) He’s mildly photogenic.
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. (continue reading…)
What a rollercoaster. What a day. What a week. Oh, just another non-controversial Masters. I totally jinxed it earlier this week when I thought I was going to get to watch this year’s Masters relatively stress-free from my couch with an easy workload. And of course, Tiger Woods was going to cruise to victory for his 15th major and all would be right in the world.
I should have known better. That doesn’t happen. In fact, it never does, especially when you think it will. Duh. (continue reading…)
Who said golf was boring?!? My roommate Carson Griffith, a freelance journalist who until February was the senior gossip columnist for the New York Daily News, has learned so much about the game and The Masters since Thursday, particularly in the last 24 hours.
When I asked for a free association, she said: “Crazy pants, Aussie accents, 14-year-old wunderkind, slow play penalties, and just as much Tiger Woods controversy as I got on the tabloid covers.”
Sums it up! And clearly, *tons* of drama. Yep, this is truly a Masters unlike any other. (continue reading…)
