Been a while since I've posted but didn't find any compelling reasons to write.

Today is the final round of The Masters and this year the tournament has been somewhat low scoring. There has been an absence of the top two players in the world on the leaderboard which generally leads us to believe that this year there will be a first time winner. They have been a few bright spots in the tournament with Chad Campbell shooting a first round 65, Anthony Kim setting a record for most birdies in a round with 11, Gary Player playing in his final round, and Kenny Perry being in the final group of The Masters today trying to become the oldest winner ever.

Looking at today's round watch for a tougher course with the toughest pin placements that have been accustomed to at day four. This could lead to a lot of movement on the leaderboard but pay close attention to the final two groups of Angel Cabrera-Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell-Jum Furyk. I think we'll see these two groups pull away with someone in the 2nd group putting on the green jacket at the end.

Without Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson contending this leads to an interesting, wide-open race that may be void of some of the roars we are used to seeing when Tiger makes a charge. I suspect that these two will be in contention down the road this year at a Major but it seems that this weekend they couldn't put it together with wayward tee shots and unlucky breaks on the greens.

So relax with family turn on your HD TVs and watch the drama that unfolds with those still in the hunt because The Masters is still one of the best golf tournaments you'll watch all year.
