The Masters - Final Round

$360,000 in my pocket! I beat Phil and Tiger!

Masters Scoreboard

A crazy day at The Masters. It started with Phil Mickleson and Tiger Woods in the same pairing, both 7 shots back of the leader. Then they both made a charge and at point Phil was only one shot back and Tiger two. But they both limped down the stretch. That was the main show as the partons (why are they called partons in golf and no spectators?) followed them around, ignoring everyone else. Everyone else sucked as if they were watching Phil and Tiger too. But when they were done, everyone seemed to get their game back. Turned into a 3-horse race between Kenny Perry, Chad Campbell and Angel Cabrera. The Japanese pimp made a late run to finish -10 and alone in 4th place pocketing $360,000, not bad!

Katayama's fourth equals best finish for Japan at Masters

The other Asians remaining Anthony Kim and Ryuji Imada finished in a 10-way tie for 19th at -2. I think they both pocket around $76,000. Remember Imada had to make a difficult putt on the last hole Friday evening just to make the cut or else he'd have gone home penniless. Amazing he got up to 19th!

Kenny Perry had a 2 shot lead with 2 holes left but blew it. Cabrera looked to be stuck behind a tree on the first playoff hole but neither Perry or Campbell could capitalize, Campbell actually missed a 4 foot putt and got eliminated. On the 2nd playoff hole Perry shanked it left and pretty much handed the Argentine the Green Jacket
