Watching The Masters is a unconfined opportunity to learn from the MASTERS of GOLF. Augusta put the leading golfers from throughout the world to the ultimate test. Unfortunately, the TV coverage is focused mainly on the leaders’ performance on each day of the tournament. On the Sunday coverage we saw Jon Rahm at his best, Brooks Koepka struggling and Phil Mickelson (with very little TV coverage) plodding withal to end up tied with Brooks for second place. You can definitely learn from these master golfers.
They all get into the same problems as we do but they often recovered with intelligent shots.
Attitude: Jon Rahm started his final day 4 shots overdue Brooks Koepka and finished the day 4 shots ahead. He placed most of his drives in the fairway and kept his tomfool when he made poor fries or putts. His patience paid off. After making up 2 strokes on the first slum played on Sunday he reminded his caddy that he had a lot of holes superiority of them.
Luck (“Rub of the Green”): Jon was 4 strokes superiority on the final slum when he duck-hooked his tee shot into the trees. The TV camera followed his shot deep into the forest, but his wittiness landed short and in the middle of the fairway. He parred the hole.
Cool Head: Brooks Koepka lost his lead with a few weak fries and a number of errant tee shots in spite of some miraculous golf shots. On the tee shot to start his 4th round he landed well-nigh 75 yards offline in the next fairway but his recovery shot to the untried unliable him to make par. On the 10th slum dogleg left, he hit the dreaded straight shot overdue a pine tree. He avoided a risky shot under that tree and hit safely to the fairway. That was followed by a perfect shot to the untried and a putt for par.
Wisdom (The Tortoise and the Hare): Phil Mickelson got very little TV coverage so very few of his successes were covered. He used his new streamlined body, widow muscle and knowledge of the undertow to shoot 7 under par on his final round to place second. At the age of 52 he is now the oldest player to end up in the top 5 at any of the 85 Masters tournaments which have been played.
We all need to improve the consistency of our drives (like Jon Rahm), perfect our pitches and chips for increasingly 1 or 2 putt greens and be patient to get our poor shots when in play.
