I dreamt a dream the other night,
jesus i couldnt sleep a wink.
Tiger was spraying drives left and right,
and a couple in the drink.

By the turn it got no better,
he was 8 shots behind.
The amount that i have on him,
i was outta me fuc*in mind.

But i say "its only thursday",
a lad, he still can dream.
Until the approach at 15,
goes in the fuc*in stream.

Bjorn set the early pace,
to 4 under did he get.
Thomas for first round leader,
might just be the bet!

Those that dont believe in dreams,
of one of which i am,
lump on the mighty Tiger,
its money for fuc*in jamGrin

Someone pointed out elsewhere that of the 4 Majors Tiger has not contested , we Irish have won them all .  Not sure of that is correct , but if it is it is an interesting fact . Might just be Rory's year with Scott reeling , Phil sort of injured , Tiger out  , Rose with slight  cluod , and Donald and Westwood playing poorly .  Leaving Bubba , Dustin and co as bigger fancies than a few months ago .  Sergio might even give it a rattle .

In regards the opening post it seems Nike have developed a ball that is supposed to cut down drastically on hooks/slices etc, Tiger is looking forward to using it later in the year.
Todays useless fact; enough golf balls are manufactured each year to completely circle the planet.

Phil Mickelson's record at the Masters is an enviable one. Not only has he won the Green Jacket three times, the affable lefthander has placed third on five occasions and posted 14 top-10 finishes in 20 starts as a pro.

Here are some of the best nuggets in a wide-ranging interview session last Monday in the Press tent.

On the absence of Tiger Woods: "He's been such a mainstay in professional golf and in the majors. It's awkward to not have him here. ... I hope he's back for the other majors, and as much as I want to win and I know how great he is and tough to beat, it also makes it special when he's in the field and you're able to win."

On Woods' impact on the game: "I remember when I was an amateur and won my first tournament in Tucson, in 1991, the entire purse was a million dollars, first place $180,000, and Steve (Loy, his coach and now agent) and I would sit down and say, I wonder if in my lifetime, probably not my career, we would ever play for a million dollar first place check. It's every week (now). ... And Tiger has been the instigator.

"He's been the one that's really propelled and driven the bus because he's brought increased ratings, increased sponsors, increased interest, and we have all benefitted but nobody has benefitted more than I have and we're all appreciative. That's why we miss him so much; we all know what he's meant to the game."

It was a sunny Sunday morning, and Murray was beginning his preshot routine, visualizing his upcoming shot, when a voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker. "Would the gentleman on the ladies' tee please back up to the men's tee."

Murray remained in his routine, seemingly unfazed by the interruption.

A little louder: "Would the man on the women's tee kindly back up to the men's tee!"

Murray raised up out of his stance, lowered his driver, and shouted, "Would the announcer in the clubhouse kindly shut up and let me play my second shot?"

A twist on an old wan for yous

Nun walks into Mother Superior's office and plonks down into a chair. She lets out a sigh heavy with frustration.
"What troubles you, Sister?" asked the Mother Superior. "I thought this was the day you spent with your family."

"It was," sighed the Sister. "And I went to play golf with my brother. We try to play golf as often as we can. You know I was quite a talented golfer before I devoted my life to Christ .."

"I seem to recall that," the Mother Superior agreed. "So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?" "Far from it," snorted the Sister.
"In fact, I even took the Lord's name in vain today!" "Goodness, Sister!" gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. "You must tell me all about it!"
"Well, we were on the 5th tee...and this hole is a monster, Mother -
540 yard Par 5, with a nasty dogleg left and a hidden green...and I hit the drive of my life. I creamed it. The sweetest swing I ever made... ...and it's flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted...and it hits a bird in mid-flight!"
"Oh my!" commiserated the Mother. "How unfortunate! But surely that didn't make you blaspheme, Sister!" "No, that wasn't it," admitted Sister. "While I was still trying to fathom what had happened, this squirrel runs out of the woods, grabs my ball and runs off down the fairway!"
"Oh, that would have made me blaspheme!" sympathised the Mother. "But I didn't, Mother!" sobbed the Sister. "And I was so proud of myself! And while I was pondering whether this was a sign from God, this hawk swoops out of the sky and grabs the squirrel and flies off, with my ball still clutched in his paws!"
"So that's when you cursed," said the Mother with a knowing smile. "Nope, that wasn't it either," cried the Sister, anguished, "because as the hawk started to fly out of sight, the squirrel started struggling, and the hawk dropped him right there on the green, and the ball popped out of his paws and rolled to about 2 feet from the cup!"

The Mother Superior sat back in her chair, folded her arms across her chest,
just stared glaringly at the Nun and SAID..............

o.k. i promise the last one....... Two men ran out to the course for a quick nine after work. They get to the tee and see two ladies playing ahead of them.

One of the men complains that the ladies will slow them down and says he is going to ask if they can play through. He goes halfway to the ladies and turns back.

The other man asked what was wrong. The man said, "I can't go up there that's my wife and my mistress."

So the other man says he will go. He goes halfway and comes back. His partner asked what happened and the man replied, "Small world, huh?" -- Tom Bach

Top 10: Reasons we love the Masters

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

10. Amateurs in the field: The Masters honors its founder, amateur legend Bobby Jones, by extending invitations to notable amateurs and amateur champions around the world.

9. Magnolia Lane: The road to the Augusta National clubhouse is 330 yards long and is lined with a canopy of magnolia trees that date back to the mid-1800s. According to the Augusta Chronicle, there are 61 magnolia trees on each side of Magnolia Lane. Those trees' branches meet overhead, creating a tunnel effect that is particularly striking when they are in bloom. It has yet to be confirmed, but we hear this is what the walkway to heaven looks like.

8. The menu: Limited, like commercial interruptions, and ridiculously affordable and tasty. Pimento cheese sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, Coke, sports drinks and beer. Sandwiches are $1.50. A dollar-fifty, people.

7. Par-3 Contest: Since 1960, a semi-social event on Augusta National's par-3 course has been played the day before the first round of the Masters Tournament. No player twho has won the nine-hole event has ever gone on to win the actual tournament the same year. Girlfriends and wives often caddie for their golfing beaus, and they bring their kids to the course. Talk about fun for the whole family.

6. Champions Dinner: The Champions Dinner has been an annual tradition at the Masters since 1952, when Ben Hogan suggested and hosted the first edition. The previous year's winner gets to select the menu – and he also has to pay.

5. Ceremonial tee shots: Jock Hutchison and Fred McLeod hit the first ceremonial opening tee shots in 1963. For many years the trio of Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen and Byron Nelson filled the role. The much-loved tradition now has Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus.

4. Drive, Chip & Putt Championship: Saying this year's inaugural Drive, Chip & Putt Championship was a success is like saying the Masters is just another golf tournament. Understatement.of.the.century. Eighty-eight juniors from around the U.S. and Canada converged on Augusta National the Sunday before the Masters - a scene alikened to Willy Wonka opening up his chocolate factory to children with golden tickets.

3. Limited commercial interruption: The Masters, by design, has fewer commercial breaks than any other golf tournament. While we'd love to never be taken away from coverage, I guess we can't complain about seeing 57 out of every 60 minutes.

2. Amen Corner: The second shot at the par-4 11th, all of the par-3 12th, and the tee shot at the par-5 13th at Augusta are nicknamed Amen Corner. This term was first used in print by author Herbert Warren Wind in his April 21, 1958 Sports Illustrated article about the Masters, and is one of the most beloved arenas in sport.

1. Green jacket: The tradition of the green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club dates to 1937. That year, members of the club wore green jackets during the tournament so that patrons in attendance could easily recognize them if they needed to ask questions. Slipping a jacket onto the winner of the Masters began in 1949. Even better? Women are sporting them now, too.

Missed the most important point.........






Report Catch Me ifyoucan April 17, 2014 10:18 AM BST

1. Eighteen holes of match play will teach you more about your foe than 18 years of dealing with him across a desk.

2. Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five.

3. It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place the world is when one is playing golf.

4. If profanity had any influence on the flight of the ball, the game of golf would be played far better than it is.

5. They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. Golf is more complicated than that.

6. If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork as poorly as they do a golf club, they'd starve to death.

7. Golf is a day spent in a round of strenuous idleness.

8. If you drink, don't drive. Don't even putt.

9. If you are going to throw a club, it is important to throw it ahead of you, down the fairway, so you don't have to waste energy going back to pick it up.

10. Man blames fate for all other accidents, but feels personally responsible when he makes a hole-in-one.

11. I don't say my golf game is bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they'd come up sliced.

12. My handicap? Woods and irons.

13. The ardent golfer would play Mount Everest if somebody would put a flag stick on top.

14. I'm hitting the woods just great, but having a terrible time getting out of them!

15. The only time my prayers are never answered is playing golf.

16. If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

17. It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling.

18. Don't play too much golf. Two rounds a day are plenty.

19. Golf and s*x are the only things you can enjoy without being good at either of them.

20. May thy ball lie in green pastures, and not in still waters.

21. If I hit it right, it's a slice. If I hit it left, it's a hook. If I hit it straight, it's a miracle.

22. The difference in golf and government is that in golf you can't improve your lie.


23. Golf is a game invented by the same people who think music comes out of a bagpipe.

If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.

When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.
None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.

When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators... YEP!!!

A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
