Will Trevor Immelman Pull A Greg Norman? [Masters Final Round Open Thread]

4/13/08 in Golf   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect



Who knew? There's actual lyrics to the Augusta melody that by now is repeating over and over in your head. Let's be thankful they don't play the actual vocals along with it for I still enjoy the background music as Jim Nantz walks us through the course.

Trevor Immelman leads by a not-so-comfortable two strokes heading into today's very windy Masters Final Round. The way he's been playing, it's doubtful we'll see a Greg Norman-like collapse, but that's what it will take for Tiger Woods to have a chance.

12 years ago Greg Norman led Nick Faldo by six strokes, only to go out and shoot a final round 78. Faldo shot a 67.

Let us not forget about Brandt Snedeker and Paul Casey, the later of which I like to win today. I think we see a playoff, as well.

Feel free to chat it up here, and my apologies about the video above.

...and Tiger just ended any hope he may have had left.

 

Edit: And CBS was dumb enough to replay Tiger swearing at himself.  Awesome.

What a putt by Tiger.  He's going to have to go on an insane run just to put some pressure on the leaders though.

I guess I'm a jinx too.

CF jinx is clearly in play today with Paul Casey. Sorry, buddy.

The only thing that might save Tiger is that everyone else is starting to throw up on themselves.

Safe to say Tiger lost it on that putt. Dumbass.

I have a feeling we'll look back at this tournament and say that "Golfer X" was lucky because Tiger should've won it.

Two missed birdie opportunities. He can't miss any more and at the very least eagle one of the par 5s on the back nine.

Immelman and Snedeker both bogey the first, but Tiger's in some trouble at 2.

Uh oh, Mr. Immelman wayward on the 1st tee.
