Masters Moments: Bubba’s “Banana” Shot

Just a little over one week until the gates are open for the first official round at the 2018 Masters, we’re throwing it back to the 2012 Masters, where Bubba Watson’s second-shot on the second playoff hole would forever become immortalized in Masters glory.

In a year that was rough on some of the PGA favorites, including T-40 finishes for both Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy at +5, the 2012 Masters would feature a first-time major champion for the 8th consecutive year in fan favorite Bubba Watson.

On the second hole of the playoff, after hitting his tee shot far right into the pines, Bubba Watson pulled off a second shot, coined a “banana shot,” that would have fans and experts talking for years.

The legendary approach shot, that was nearly 90-degrees, would put Watson within 10-feet of the cup, with Louis Oosthuizen’s missteps giving him a chance to two-put for his first Masters green jacket.

Masters Moments: “The Chip”

Just a couple weeks from teeing off at Augusta National, the 2018 Masters is filled with storylines any golf fan will love. We’re looking back at some of the most memorable Masters moments of the last couple of decades, including the 2005 Masters, and “The Chip.”

Getting ready to tee off on the 16th with the lead, Tiger Woods seemed almost destined to fall victim to a furious rally by Chris DiMarco. And matters didn’t get any better when Tiger strayed long while hitting his approach shot on the 16th green. But one shot, which would fondly become known as “The Chip.”

One of the most iconic moments in Masters history. The phenomenal shot, the hovering on the edge, over the hole, and the reaction from Tiger.. truly a Masters Moment. This chip would help Woods save 16, and eventually win another green jacket in a play-off with Chris DiMarco.

Masters Moments: Tiger’s Introduction

With the 2018 Masters Tournament just weeks away, we’re taking a look at some of the greatest moments from the Masters of year’s past. First up, we head back to 1997 where a young up-and-comer named Tiger Woods introduced himself to golf immortality.

When the young Tiger Woods hit the PGA Tour circuit in 1996, there was always buzz that he was going to be the real deal. And at the 1997 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, we finally got an early glimpse at the dominance that was sure to come.

After finishing the first round in 4th place (-2) after shooting 70 on day 1, Tiger Woods would shoot 66 in the second round, rocketing him to the top of the leader board at -8, where he would stay for the remainder of the Masters. Woods would then shoot a blistering 65 in the third round, putting him nine-strokes above Costantino Rocca, who sat in second at -6, before shooting 69 on championship Sunday, giving him a 12-stroke (-18) victory over second-place finished Tom Kite (-6).

The 1997 Masters Tournament would be Tiger’s first major victory of his career, and would give Woods a margin-of-victory and four-day score record for the tournament. Woods was also the youngest player to ever don the green jacket at just 21 years of age.

2018 Masters Tournament: Early Odds

As Spring slowly begins to set in, we move closer and closer to a tradition unlike any other, the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. And with big names returning like Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, an early look at the odds-on favorites to don the famed green jacket in April.

Ranked number one in the world golf rankings, Dustin Johnson is the early favorite at +800 to take home his first green jacket. Johnson has finished in the top 6 at August in each of his last two times competing, finishing tied for 6th (-9) in 2015 and tied for 4th (-1) in 2016. Johnson also holds the title as the only golfer to make three eagles in one round in Masters history.

World #3 Jordan Spieth is the second odds-on favorite to don the green jacket, with +900 odds. Spieth, who won the 2015 Masters with a staggering -18 finish, finished in second place (-2) in 2016 before struggling in 2017 with a tied for 11th (-1) finish.

Back on the major circuit and expected to compete in the Masters Tournament for this first time since 2015 (and just the second time since 2013), Tiger Woods returns to Augusta National a four-time Masters champion, looking to get his game back on track after years struggling with scandal, injury and surgeries. Woods currently sits at 544th in the world golf rankings.

2017 Masters Predictions

Nearly two weeks away from a tradition unlike any other, the 2017 Masters promises to be one of the most competitive and exciting tournaments to date. What are some of the experts saying about their predictions on this year’s edition of the Masters at August National?

Michael Bamberger, senior writer for Sports Illustrated

“Sergio (Garcia). Just when you didn’t think it was possible. I’ve been watching some Ballesteros and Olazabal Augusta highlights recently. There is a Spanish style of golf that is all its own, and Sergio has it in spades, despite the lack of art with the putter. But with his driving game and iron play, coupled with his low expectations, he could surprise himself and the rest of us, too (present company excluded).” – via Golf.com

Kyle Robbins, staff writer for SBNation Golf

“The Japanese young gun isn’t just beating everyone, he’s blowing dudes off the face of the earth. In his four wins to close 2016, his margin of victory totaled 19 shots. Sure, a couple of those events were in Japan and another was Tiger’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. But I don’t care if you’re playing mini-tour events, ethering the field four times in five starts like that is insane. So, why now, what changed for Hideki? He figured out how to putt. Matsuyama’s always been a brilliant tee-to-green player, but he was 103rd on tour in strokes gained putting in 2016. If he keeps that pace up this season, he’s gonna win The Masters. By, like, a lot.” – via SBNation

Elizabeth Bethel, staff writer for FanSided Network

“The competition is intense. There’s very little room for mistakes. Winning The Masters isn’t easy. Those who win the tournament more than once are among golf’s most elite and entitled to claim a very special place in the game’s history. My prediction: The 2017 Masters champion will be a previous winner.” – via FanSided

2016 Masters In Review

Championship Sunday has come and gone, and another year at the Masters did not disappoint. We recap all of the action from Augusta.

2016 MastersReview

Spieth’s Meltdown

After leading for three and a half rounds into The Masters, world number two and defending Masters champion had a complete meltdown on the 12th hole of the final round on championship Sunday.

Coming up with a quadruple bogey on the 12th hole par-3, Spieth went from being the eventual-champion to being tied for fourth and fighting for his chance to compete in the final five holes.

Spieth’s Masters ended at T-2.

Willett A Winner

The beneficiary of Spieth’s meltdown on the 12th hole was Danny Willett, the world golf ranked #12 golfer from England.

Willett had been on a roll already, but following Spieth’s flounders, Willett went into the clubhouse with a three-stroke lead and never fell below winning his first green jacket.
