Oh, I think we’ve all been there Mr. Woods. Tiger Woods hit a tee shot at the Masters that went way right on Augusta National’s enticing 15th hole, “Firethorn”.
Tiger has always been known for barking at himself after bad shots, and this was no exception. Only difference is that it’s at the biggest golf tournament of the year.
Check out the Vine below!
While Tiger and Rory are both off to kinda slow starts, Jordan Spieth played like a man on fire, finishing the Thursday round with an impressive -8 and a three stroke lead. Ernie Els (YES, that Ernie Els!) and Charley Hoffman also turned in some good scorecards, with both finishing -5.
Jason Day, who’s come so close to winning a major several times, is also -5 along with 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose.
My pick, Jimmy Walker is +1 so far. *Sigh*. Hey, I’m sure you’ve been there too!

Well how about this? With some of the short game woes that plagued Tiger Woods, he took a little time off to work on his game.
His plane was spotted at an Augusta airport which left many wondering if he was indeed going to playing the Masters. Turns out, he was there practicing, playing the full 18 hole course.
Now, after several days of speculation, the Tiger has spoken and will indeed play at next week’s Masters. He missed last year’s Masters and is back at it again.
Here’s the tweet from Tiger that nearly broke Twitter (Sorry, I’m on mobile so I can only take a screenshot. Don’t judge me!):
And here’s a link to his announcement on his website:
So with Tiger in the field, Rory going for the career grand slam, Bubba trying to go back to back and Jimmy Walker and Dustin Johnson playing like men on fire, this is likely going to be one of the greatest Masters we’ll ever see.
As for Tiger, will he blossom amongst the flowers of Augusta? Or will the Green Jacket float away from him, flapping its sleeves yet again?
Buckle up your servers y’all! Whe’really in for a heck of ride!

That’s right, there’s a crazy golf chick out there and she’s good. Minigolf that is. What’s that you say? You thought she was really crazy? Well no she’s not, she’s plays crazy golf which is another name for minigolf. So did I fool you? No? Well I salute you then! Anyways, meet 18-year-old minigolf star Olivia Prokopova, a young pro who has been very good since she was little and has since won two mini golf Masters titles.
“My dad worked as a sports reporter and he took me with him to an interview he did with a minigolf trainer. I tried to play there and really liked it. Apparently, I kept asking when we would go back to play more.” the Czech said according to CNN.
That’s awesome! I love the fact that one, she plays minigolf and two, that her dad was a sports reporter. I like this girl already! For her to only be a year younger than myself (Yes friends, I’m 19) and to already have two Masters titles under her belt is impressive! That’s more Masters championships than Tiger Woods at 18 although it’s two different sports. Speaking of Tiger Woods, she challenged the PGA Tour superstar to a round of mini golf but he never responded. She believes that he was scared (Or scuured!) in a sarcastic way of course.
“We have challenged Tiger Woods on several occasions, mainly through the media, but he never responded. Maybe he is afraid?!” she joked according to CNN.
Well shoot, if I was Tiger I’d be scared because she’s arguably the best minigolf player in the world! I know she would destroy me unless all of a sudden I gained some magical ninja powers that enable me to drain putts like a boss. Minigolf has been around since 1867 and was originally used for women since they didn’t think swinging a golf club was pretty enough so then they set up tournaments for putting only and that’s how minigolf was created.
Kind of fitting since Olivia is a girl. It’s like as if she’s the stepping stone of all of the past great female minigolf players or something. Anyways, I think it’s really cool that she’s getting the attention she deserves and it’s really great for the exposure of competitive minigolf because come on y’all, who doesn’t like minigolf? Oh, and before you say “It’s not a sport you fool!”, I’ll say that it IS indeed a sport. ANYTHING that’s COMPETITIVE is a sport so therefore, minigolf, poker, etc ARE in fact SPORTS. It’s in the dictionary but of course there will be other definitions saying that there needs to be contact involved but hey, I can’t argue with competitiveness and this chick’s competitive and that’s what’s up, I can respect that.
