Today it’s about Marc Leishman, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Rose, Will Zalatoris and, Xander Schauffele, and the rest of the field. I got to say it – to have our hometown guy up there just strokes away from the lead on ‘Masters Sunday’ is almost too much! What a wonderful Masters champion Leishman would be. I know, I know, he’s not a Norfolkian, but Virginia Beach is just a hop and a skip down the road from Norfolk.
As for the other four – I have to go with Matsuyama next. He’s played sterling golf so far and, like the other guys, he’s never won a Masters. As for Will Zalatoris – I never heard the name before this week, but I like his style. I love his game and he gives a great interview. Xander Schauffele is cool and his game lacks nothing. Finishing yesterday with that par was serious stuff that he really needed to put him in the last group. And, then there’s Justin Rose; he’s great. He played that fantastic round on Friday that was totally pure. He’s almost as cool as DJ (without the swagger. ha.)
It kills me that DJ isn’t playing the weekend. He’s usually just HOT, but his game was a HOT MESS this time. At least I’ll get to see him put the green jacket on the on winner later today.
So, I have no interest this weekend in politicians – good or bad. Politics is just be-damned these past four days so far as I’m concerned. Don’t know, can’t care.
