Thank you to everyone who played in the Masters Tournament!
Things were a little chaotic when the officials at Augusta National decided to move their start times to the morning on Saturday in the late afternoon. Usually, the last group tees off around 2:30 so when that was changed to 9 AM, we had to go to Plan B on the fly. We appreciate everyone’s understanding which helped make things go as smoothly as possible.
The event was won by Mike McDonald, who had his own Tiger Woods-like resurgence after suffering a health scare a couple of years ago. Mike had a great round himself with a 74-net 58, and he was helped by his PGA partner Xander Schauffele who shot a 4 under par 68.
The round of the day at Southers Marsh belonged to Steve O’Brien, who had what was potentially a personal record 65-net 55. Unfortunately for Steve, Hideki Matsuyama didn’t come through for him and finished at even par, and left Steve one stroke back in a 3 way tie for second. Steve tied Club Champion Mike Sullivan for low round of the day at 65 gross. Sully is recovering from his own health scare last fall and it’s great to see him back in action.
Paul Rodrigues and Bill MacNevin (also recovering from a serious accident 2 years ago) also finished tied for second in a very closely contested event.
Full Results (or at least the top 20 to spare some embarrassment)
