The Masters is always a great start to the Majors and leaves UK golfers berefet of sleep but the annual insomnia is worth going through.
Last week I nominated Jordan Speith to win win but my typo said Jason and that is my best defence to those who thought I meant Jason Day. Several members were pleased as I had been mentioning since the end of last season that Jordan would win this tournament.

Time for a cliché…
Well, that's Augusta done for another year and whilst the famous back nine didn't produce the type of drama it has done in years gone by, that was because 21-year-old Jordan Spieth refused to play any part in making it tense. What a display it was.
There was much to admire about his game, but at the risk of boring you with a cliché, 'It's all about the short game'! Yes, he was long and accurate off the tee and his putting was fantastic. However, the shots slip away very quickly at somewhere like Augusta and it wasn't just Spieth who scrambled well when he had to; that final leaderboard was ultimately a list of golfers who, during the week, had that unerring ability to get the ball up and down time and time again.
