I hope you have all had a good weekend and are not too tired after an amazing Masters Tournament? In the end Jordan Speith was simply too good for the rest of the field. He led from start to finish which was a feat not achieved since 1976 and from day 1 he looked 100% in control. Even when some of his drives went astray he had the presence of mind to work out what was the most appropriate shot for that situation... and most of the time his decision was the correct one. When you look at some of the records he broke over the 4 days you can see why he came out on top. Here are the records he has broken;
- His 4 round total of 270 (-18) is the joint lowest score every recorded at the Masters
- He had the lowest 36 and 54 hole totals in Masters history
- He made 28 birdies over the 4 days, again a new record
- Only player every to reach -19
All in all it was a pretty good showing by the European contingent with 4 brits in the top 10. It was a shame that Justin Rose could not catch up to Jordan Spieth on the last day as it would have made for great TV viewing.
With Tiger coming back to form, Jordan Spieth up to number 2 in the world rankings I think we are in for a good year of golf!
And finally, only 359 days until the start of the next Masters!
I use two examples of how much pressure you should place on the club, this first is to compare the grip to a raw egg. Imagine you are gripping the egg as tight as you can, but without it breaking, this is approximately the right amount of pressure. Another example would be squeezing a tube of toothpaste so that the paste just comes out of the tube
There may have been some excellent skill on show at The Masters, but before I close this blog I must tell you about a fantastic bit of skill from one of our Juniors. During the Junior Fun Golf on Saturday morning we were doing skills challenges during which they had to chip the ball as close to the hole as possible. Redford Osbourne did not chip in once, or twice, but three times in a row from a range of 30 feet... I bet I can't find anyone else who has done that... great bit of skill Red!
