With only three days left to go, the world of golf is waiting in anticipation for The Masters at Augusta National. After a final day to remember in 2011, the excitement surrounding the 2012 tournament has been building. If you’re a Master’s rookie here are two clips, chosen by Play with Flair, to show you why Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are seen as the main contenders to be wearing this year’s green jacket.
Some might say that the focus on him since his win at Bay Hill has been over the top. I think that a man who has won The Masters tournament four times (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005) deserves the hype. His mind has been ‘distracted’, lets say, for the past couple of years but he is in good form and if anyone can bring some magic this year it is him
Hot shot: He won The Masters in 1997 with the lowest score ever, 270 in total
His Masters moment:
His 2011 ‘Masters Meltdown’ will go down in golfing history but his rapid recovery to win the US Open was even more remarkable. With one Major already under his belt, McIlroy will be determined to win at Augusta National and put that final day in 2011 far behind him.
Hot Shot: He won last year’s US Open with a shot total of 268, the lowest in US Open history.
