The Masters is one of my favorite sporting events. Augusta National is America's golf course, a national treasure that maintains the standards and traditions that made this nation great. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus' amazing fourth round charge beginning on the 9th hole that propelled him to victory at the age of 46 before galleries that yelled louder than any at Augusta National before or since. Togolf fans,it's one of those hallowed events, almost akin to dramatic historical events like JFK's assassination and the first moonwalk,where you remember where you were when you first heard of it and then watched it unfold. I'll be rooting for Phil Mickelson to win his third major and second in a row (he's the defending '05 PGA champ). If not Phil, Ernie Els has been so close several times and would be a very popular choice if he finally breaks through. After those two I'll root for Sergio Garcia, a great talent with a charismatic personality (oh that's right, only Negroes can have charismatic personalities). But as long as it isn't some fluky long-shot -- no more Todd Hamiltons, Ben Curtises and Shaun Micheels please -- whoever wins it will be great theater as always.
