Optimistic! Where's the HAPPY DANCE!
Can anyone SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the Masters?
Tiger really managed the course on Sunday. He didn't take chances to hurt himself. I was so proud that he kept his composure throughout the tournament ESPECIALLY on Sunday. This I believe was the key to his win.
I was also happy for Joey. It was like a double victory for him as well with Freddy winning the senior tourny. Joey showed his class by keeping his bib on. (dig @ Williams) ;-)))
Just goes to show you that when Tiger is back the pressure on the paired player is still astounding. There is no player in the world that has to deal with all the distractions and pressures that Tiger constantly has to play through. Even Poulter & Els had many distractions from the fans of Tiger's pairing jockeying for position. Charlie Wi caved in to the pressure on Saturday and GMac was not immune. GMac putted very well to start but Tiger stayed focused and matched him for the most part. The further into the round the pressure kept building on GMac to create an upset and so he did. GMac missed putts that he would normally make. The missed 4 footer caused him to start talking to himself and that's when I knew it was getting harder for GMac to affect Tiger.
I think that Jack's 73 PGA Tourny wins may be in jeopardy this year now that Tiger has felt what it takes to become a winner again. Tiger looked and behaved as a winner and that is deserving of more respect from the naysayers.
