The Masters: There’s Nothing Like It In Sports

Even if golf isn’t your thing, The Masters tournament holds a certain magic all its own.

The Masters: There’s nothing like it in sports.

It’s as if you go see your favorite major league baseball team and players who retired 10 to 25 years ago are inserted into the starting lineup and at bat when the game is on the line.

Teams have an old timers game but you’ll never seen any of those guys coming out of a retirement for a day.

That’s saved for the Masters, which is a tradition that blends the old with the new. Every Masters champion has the right to keep playing long after their prime and every once in a while a 60-year-old will show up on the leaderboard after the first couple of days.

Even players in their 50s who no longer actively compete on the PGA Tour find themselves in contention on Sunday. Past champions Fred Couples and Bernard Langer, who are in their 50s, fit that mold because it’s a course that rewards knowledge and experience.

This year the Masters says goodbye to one of its two-time champions when Texan Ben Crenshaw, 63, makes this week’s tournament his last.

The Augusta National faithful will be cheering like mad Thursday and Friday to help Crenshaw make the cut one last time, remembering his last Masters win 20 years ago, an emotional victory days after he buried his coach, mentor and father figure.

While Crenshaw says goodbye to the tournament, past champions like 65-year-old Tom Watson keep growing strong but every tournament could be his last. You never know when a player will call it quits.

The Masters is much about its past as it is its future. Golfing greats Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player kick off the tournament every year by hitting ceremonial tee shots on the first hole before the rest of the field starts.

The legends and today’s players celebrate the meshing of generations Wednesday with the tournament’s Par 3 contest, a fun-filled afternoon that gives children a chance to see their father’s and grandfather’s favorite players like Jack Nicklaus get his first-ever hole-in-one at Augusta National.

The winner of the Par 3 contest, Keven Streelman, had a great storyline when his caddie for the day was a 13-year-old with an inoperable benign brain tumor. Only the Masters.

That’s a great kickoff to a tourney that has plenty of storylines this year with Tiger Woods dominating the headlines with his return from injury and time-off from golf as he tries to return to his glory years.

Rory McIlroy, 25, another child prodigy like Tiger, is trying to win his third major in a row and complete the rare feat of a career grand slam of holding all four majors just as Tiger and Jack Nicklaus have done.

Jordan Spieth
Jordan Spieth will try to win it all this year.

While Crenshaw steps down from the Masters, Jordan Spieth, a 21-year-old Texan he mentored and is one of the next great American golfers, tries to win the fabled green jacket after finishing second last year in his debut.

Bubba Watson, who has won two of the last three Masters is back at it again as is fan favorite Phil Mickelson who hasn’t won in the longest span in his career and is trying to recapture the magic at a place he has won three times.

It’s going to be an exciting weekend in Georgia and if Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are on the leaderboard with Rory McIlroy and future stars like Jordan Spieth it will be a Masters to remember for the generations.

Nicklaus won his last Masters at the age of 46 in 1986 which with today’s lifestyle, training and medicine, is like a player in their 50s winning today.

So if you tune in on Sunday to see the greatest golfers in the world coming down the stretch for an exciting finish, don’t be surprised if you see a name on the leaderboard that looks like one of yesteryear.

Only in the Masters.

  1. I enjoy your piece of work, thankyou for all the useful content.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

  67. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).
