It’s Jon Rahm and LIV 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Jon Ram , Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickleson and Patrick Reed.

Minus all that ‘noise’ wasn’t the Masters a golf spectacle that everyone truly needed? Well not everyone. As we await the ‘54 hole’ jokes.

Yes Jon Rahm won by 4 but not before being challenged by inadequate and unfit 54 hole ‘sportswashers’ and a certain 52 yr old.

Where were the Mcllroys, the Horschels and the naysayers?

Shot of the tournament? Theegala’s eeringly similar Tigeresque chip at the 16th.

Tournament MVP?
52 yr old Phil Mickleson for simply being 52 and blindsiding all of us.

Most Ruthless Player? Jon Rahm. Turned the screw when it mattered.

And that’s how we remember the 2023 Masters. And the falling trees.

Notables: Speith’s charge, Mcllroy’s no-show, Tiger being Tiger.
