I preferred my "Phil Mickelson beats out Tiger's Wood" headline.

Hey, did you hear that Phil Mickelson's wife and mother both had issues with their Boobies?

Mr. FIGJAM could end up with the most Green Jackets of anybody, a real feat in the Tiger era.

Subby played this about as well as Mickelson played the back 9

Incredible ending. WTG Phil! Represent San Diego!!!

I was shocked it wasn't ManBoobs with the breast cancer.

Tiger really kicked it around out there today, huh? I can't remember ever seeing him fail to get out of a bunker before

After five holes he was +3 on the round and he looked awful pretty much the whole day and the freakin guy still shot a 69. Anyone else plays like that and thy put up a 78

Phil's shot on 13 was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen, and I mean that both in a good way and a bad way.

Amazing shot, the tournament was over after that.

That is a Phil Mickelson trademark shot. It either goes on the green or in the crowd. And if it goes in the crowd, everyone's on here saying "WTF was he thinking?"

Now, whenever anyone says that, they can look at the 13th hole of the final round of the 2010 Masters to know.

The reporting about Tiger reminds me of the old story from PRAVDA. During the Cold War,an American car and a Russian car have a race. The American car wins and PRAVDA reports it as "Russian car comes second in race, American car finishes next to last."

I preferred my headline: Tiger scores 69 at Augusta. And the rest of America.

'Win it or wear it!'

I've always enjoyed watching Phil play. You're just never quite sure what COULD happen.

Today was PURE Phil: Make an incredible shot from the trees, over the creek and on the green, then gag the putt.

Anyone else think those green jackets look like what you would find at Thrift Village in 1978?

Phil is basically the real-life version of Kevin Costner in Tin Cup

I have always hated phil and never really cared for tiger but today I was pulling for phil to choke and tiger to win simply so the press would stfu.

After hearing about phils wife I kinda felt bad but I got over it cause she is still hott, and was it me or did phil look like he had a breast reduction?

And I guess Tiger needed the extra ho's he was banging to get that extra push for his game, kinda sad he comes back with very little golf played and only loses by a few strokes.
 
2010-04-12 12:49:09 AM  
Mickelson has a nice pair of breasts himself.

I tried to find an article about the Masters that didn't mention Woods. I think this was the best of the bunch.

The problem is, too many times, those shots have cost him.

In this case... he really didn't need it.

Wildly crazy drive

Ridiculously stupid decision that is mind-boggingly aggressive for no reason whatsoever and terribly risky

Pulls off the impossible shot

Misses the putt

Sounds about right for Phil

But that's why Mickelson is fun to watch. He's the Sexy Rexy of the golf course, only actually successful.

Why would that shut them up, the whole week they were waiting for Tiger to start winning. Even after his craptacular start today they were all "well, anytime now he's going to turn it on..."
 
2010-04-12 1:57:50 AM  
Tiger Woods compared his comeback to that of Ben Hogan? Really??? Ben Hogan, who had to take several months off from the game because he SACRIFICED HIS BODY TO PROTECT HIS WIFE FROM BEING KILLED BY A TOUR BUS??

Screw Tiger, I'm done with him.

Also, the Masters' was won today by Phil Mickelson, who took time off from golf to support his wife when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In case anyone didn't get the reference from the headline.

Completely aside: What Woods did, and the way he was accepted back by the American public as if he had done nothing wrong, has done FAR more damage to marriage as an institution than gay marriage will ever do. Yet we don't see the "defend traditional marriage" folks in an uproar over this.

/I think I know which golfer I would hold up as a role model to my sons. Should I ever have any.

I have a question: Why exactly would you choose a golfer as a role model? There are more heroic professions than gentlemen in polo shirts with a good grasp of projectile physics gallivanting about for 18 holes on a field cunningly disguised as an enormous waste of water and land.

Not that I dislike golf, by the way. Just golf courses.

Anyway, not for me to teach you how to parent, but if you're looking to professional athletes as role models for your children - should you ever have any - I'd say you're already starting off on the wrong foot. These are generally young men in the 20-40 year range with more money than they know what to do with. Odds are you're going to get similar behavior to Woods, and is anyone really surprised by that? It's only because he's so well known that it was even noticed at all.

Also, good for Mickelson. Props to him for winning, hope his wife recovers, and that he learns to fly somehow or his clubs become superpowered or something.

way to see phil win and tiger lose after all the hype.

This is true. However, as much as I would prefer my future kids to imprint on me, my wife, the good people we know, or various virtuous individuals from the past, I know they're going to select characters they see on TV as role models. That's just how kids are. That means they're going to try to emulate one of several class of people: made-up characters on fictional TV shows, athletes, performers, politicians, etc. because those are the people on TV and the people kids talk about among themselves. We may wish it to be otherwise, but my kid is not going to take Charles Darwin or other dead people as role models.

When I was growing up, I wanted to be like Captain Picard. It worked for me at the time, but there aren't a lot of characters like that on TV anymore. Good people just don't make good ratings. God forbid my kid wants to be like a politician when they grow up. That pretty much leaves athletes . . .

Yeah, Tiger coming from behind to win on the final day of the Masters after having not golfed for a year would have shut the press right up.

I can see how you'd hate Phil -- where does he get off being all "nice" and shiat?
 
2010-04-12 9:43:29 AM  
That was an amazing shot on the 13th by Mickelson. I'm a horrible golfer but I'd rather try to make a shot like that than play it safe. I don't like it in sports when a person or team plays it safe and tries to protect the win - play as hard as you can!

Of course, if it would have been me trying a shot like that, the ball would have bounced off the tree and hit me between the eyes.

Congrats Phil


I've always been a fan of Lefty's, but I had no idea.....bad ass golfer and apparently an amazing farking human being..

Link (new window)

Fark Tiger Woods....always thought he was a douchebag and now he's proven it to be true....

I'd agree in most sports, but in golf your opponent is the course in addition to the other competitors. In football, you can't go from having a two touchdown lead to trailing with one throw. At the time Phil hit that shot, his closest competitor was Westwood, who was two shots back and had already laid up.

I love that Mickelson is confident enough to try that shot, but the difference between that being a great shot and an utter disaster is about 10 feet of carry. But that's why he's great. The best news is that he didn't hit driver on 18 and took his favorite fairway bunker out of play.

Tennis. Badminton. Ping Pong. Poker (hehe). Racquetball. Squash....

As I was watching the Masters, I was wondering who all in the crowd had *not* seen Tincup, and who all were making the same comparisons...

Yeah for Phil, Amy and kids!

Sure it would. But he hasn't even done it when being in-training[1], so it wasn't likely he'd start now.

[1]fun fact: Tiger Woods has never won a major where he wasn't leading at the start of the fourth round. Which is to say, Tiger never comes from behind.

A) Daniels is obviously correct. The media shutting up about Tiger Woods? Hell, they were already back to sucking him off for the whole tournament. It wasn't until after Saturday's round that anyone besides Woods was on the front page of ESPN.com. For hours, even though the main headline was about Mickelson, they still had pictures of Woods and stories about him.

B) So is sotua. Woods is a front-runner, just like all his fans.

C) I don't know why people even respond to steamingpile, it's not like he has more than one sensible post per year.
