After sleeping through first 3 rounds Masters finishes strong

As they teed off Sunday’s round the marquee names were deep in the Woods (no pun intended) well out of the line of vision of the leaders, but then the opening act stole the show from the headliner. The Tiger & Phil show was round of the tournament as Phil shot a front nine (30) worthy of Masters’ folklore and found himself two strokes behind the leaders, torching Tiger in the process. Then Woods fought back, in Ali/Fraiser fashion, to even the score and put himself in contention. While Kenny Perry and Angel Cabrera battled for the lead in front of an empty gallery so quiet birds felt comfortable resting on the putting greens, attendants were limiting the spectators four holes ahead. The combination made for the perfect day of golf, Mickelson’s record tying 9, Tiger’s eagle comeback, while the heavyweights slugged it out at one point outscoring the leader pairing -9 to +3, meanwhile the leaders played par golf allowing the heavy’s to get within one shot to keep the entire course at a fever pitch. A shot drive at a par 3 for Lefty and Tiger’s continued problems finishing a round took the favs out of contention, leaving Perry and Cabrera to give us one of the classic finishes. Did you enjoy watching Phil and Tiger more than the leaders? Let us know here and in the PGA chat rooms.
