There were plenty of great rounds of golf at Augusta on Saturday. Angel Cabrera is the only golfer with three rounds in the sixties. He and Kenny Perry are tied for the lead at -11. Tiger and Phil are seven strokes back and it would take a real miracle for them to have a chance. (Check out Gary Player’s Masters Miracle.) The winner is coming from the top eight guys on the leader board. Take your pick, Cabrera, Perry, Campbell, Furyk, Stricker, Katayama, Sabbatini and Hamilton. It is cool to see the homemade, unorthodox swings of Cabrera, Perry and Furyk contend for the Masters title. I’m hoping Kenny Perry can keep it up and win his first major, at 48 he would be the oldest major winner ever.
Many families will be watching the final round and celebrating Easter Sunday at the same time. Before you settle in for a big dinner and some great golf take a minute to check out a little tribute to the great Seve Ballesteros. He was the youngest to win the Masters back in 1980 and followed it up with a second Masters title in 1983 and three Open Championships. We all love Seve’s fire and his creativity with a golf ball. He was famous for playing from parking lots and from anywhere on the course. If Seve was playing, you knew it was going to be exciting. Think of Seve and his family and wish them the best.
