I watched golf for the first time this weekend. I mean, seriously watched it. I’ve caught 5 minutes here or five minutes there over the years while falling asleep, but this Masters tournament I actually watched. I’ve always been curious how people can watch golf on television.
Golf is a hobby that I just don’t have time for. It’s not that I don’t want to play. I have other hobbies that take my time on the weekends. It’s that simple. When I retire to Seabrook I’ll pick up golf.
I enjoyed watching this masters, because the players seemed so human. Nothing was going right for them and it was anyone’s tournament to win. I found myself rooting for Jerry Kelly and Vaughn Taylor, because of their easy-going demeanors. I also found myself rooting against Tiger. Why? The guy is FILTHY rich already and strikes me as a crybaby.
In the end, I was happy to see Joaquin Phoenix….I mean Zach Johnson hold on for the win.
