Opinion: The Masters Mystery –
By Wayne Halm –
I admit it – there is a long list of things I don’t know about golf. Right at the top of the list is The Masters Mystery. I just don’t know why golfers watch the tournament.
Maybe I’m just not into “hero worship”. When people ask me, “Who is your favorite golfer?”, I reply “Me”. I don’t understand why I would be expected to care about one professional golfer more than another.
Or maybe I just don’t care much for spectator sports. I play golf – I don’t watch golf. I do worry about tournaments siphoning golfing dollars away from the courses. Tee times are easy to get this weekend.
But really I am probably just selfish. I don’t want to talk about Jason Spieth’s birdie, I want to talk about my birdie. And folks I don’t care how well you strike the ball, you can’t make a birdie sitting in front of the television. Get out on a golf course.
Come play golf with me.
