With the world’s best rolling down Magnolia Lane this week, we’ve partnered with our friends at Gate City Sports to deepen our Master coverage and spice it up with some local analysis. They’ve kicked things off with this piece – Georgia Contingent looks Masterful at Augusta, and it’s eye opening to see how much golf talent is coming out of the great State of Georgia.
The piece above examines up-and-comers like Roberto ‘Red Lightning’ Castro, Harris English (too big to fail), ATM Machine Chris Kirk, and Patrick ‘FIGJAM’ Reed and offers good analysis of veteran DSGB’s (Down South Georgia Boys) Gerry Watson Jr., Larry Mize, and NLU’s starting Defensive End Matt Kuchar.
There is a classic video in the GCS post of Augusta native Larry Mize burying his 1987 chip (and Greg Norman’s soul) in sudden death. Naturally, I watched the entire clip, which lead me to the video below – SportsCenter’s top 10 Masters moments. It’s a pretty standard run through of famous Masters moments from #10 down to #2, but then #1 comes out of NO WHERE, with no justification for why it’s the number one Master’s moment. It’s baffling, and I’ll give you all a hint why…Mike Weir…enjoy!
