Dave B. Wins The Masters!
His unique pick couldn't beat the human hook shot, but 2nd was enough...
The Rule 20-6 Golf Pool Masters TrophyDave B. had playoff loser Louie Oosthuizen as a unique and no one picked winner Bubba, so Dave road the South African and his double eagle to victory this week, finishing $282,080 ahead of me.  It was Dave's 6th career major title, tying Dave A. for the all-time record.  I had 3 top 10 finishers but couldn't make up enough cash to overcome Louie's $864k 2nd place money.  Dave A. finished 3rd, only $7,680 behind me.  Jordie found the bubble this week, missing the money by just over $52k.

I stayed on top of the season race.  Randy moved up 2 spots to 2nd and trails me by about $323k.  Mike D. fell one spot to 3rd but is only $20,084 behind Randy.  Bill fell one spot to 4th and is $40,425 out of the last payout spot.  Less than $876k separates 1st and 6th with 3 tournaments to go in the Spring Season battle.

Randy maintained his "T.M.C." lead.  Brian jumped over Hugh into 2nd but trails Randy by over $944k.  Hugh is hot on Brian's heels, trailing him by a piddly $182.  I am in 4th, about $183k behind Hugh.  One more tournament to go in this pool, which will be the Wells Fargo event in 4 weeks.

The Masters did not disappoint again this year.  I enjoyed seeing Bubba win.  Any American winning a major is always refreshing.  Dave A. and Brian took some pictures when they were at the tournament on Wednesday.  Check them out on the "Other Stuff" page.  There is a picture of a pimento cheese sandwich, along with their outstanding egg salad sandwich, which I forgot about.  That picture itself is worth the look and the others are entertaining too.

The next tournament in about 10 days is the Valero Texas Open.  I don't think we've ever played the Texas Open before and I really don't ever remember watching it on TV, so I really don't know what to say.  I'm sure the field will be stellar... or maybe not.  It will be a let down after this week, but I guess you can't have a Masters every week.  The scrubs have to have their chances too.

Get those picks in on time.
