South African Wins the Masters!
I'll bet the Microgaming Clan is celebrating right now!Thumbs Up

South African Trevor Immelman just won the coveted Green Jacket at the Masters in Augusta!

A great story since fellow South African, Gary Player won the Masters exactly 30 years ago.

They showed a picture of Gary Player holding Trevor when he was just a toddler!
I guess the magic rubbed off!

Great Story!Peace/Victory

I think Renuan (my administrator who helped with the board and has the username Xceptional) actually knows him. Renuan is himself a scratch golfer and played with a few of the pro's over the years. More to the point, his family are fairly good friends with the Ernie Els clan as well.

Makes a victory of this sort seem kind of personal. Very proud South African. Our currently playing top dogs include (Top 50 Rankings)

Ernie Els
Retief Goosen
Trevor Immelman
Rory Sabbatini
Richard Sterne
Tim Clark

Fact is, our junior ranks are heavily biased towards matchplay rather than tournaments. This "hardens" the individuals. When you are in the final round of the Masters and Tiger is charging, having this background helps. You play the course and the situation. You do not look at the man, just at what you need to do to win.

This is why, I think, we have more than a handful of major winners.

Tiger wasn't on it this week unfortunately, but he's won so many damn tournaments, and will win shitloads more, I was glad to see this kid win it.

I'm sure his WIFE was too.Giddy

You know,.... winning the Masters also comes with a LIFETIME EXEMPTION from the PGA tour, and that is worth a CAZILLION dollars all by itself!Laughing

I was really happy for the kid.Thumbs Up
