ROUND 4 (final round):
Wind S@16, Firmness 4.5, Greens 11.1, Rough 4, 75F, Partly Cloudy
Scoring average for day:  71.34 (-0.66 to par)

Long-hitter Mike Souchak seemed to be the man to beat the first two days, but then The Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus, took control of the tournament.  His 3rd round 63 (-9), coupled with a 1st round 64 (-8), paved the way for a 3-stroke win despite struggling in the final round.  At one point in the final round he had a 6-stroke lead.  Isao Aoki was steady all four days and took 2nd place, while a strong contingent of six golfers (Arnold Palmer, Walter Hagen, Lee Trevino, Davis Love III, Rory McIlroy, and Peter Jacobsen) finished in 3rd place, 5-strokes off the lead.  With the win, Nicklaus moved into 2nd place in both Cup Points and Earnings behind Tiger Woods on the season.  In an oddity, none of the PGA's four winningest golfers (Snead, Woods, Nicklaus, and Hogan) ever won the Houston Open in real-life.

Henrik Stenson and Bert Yancey hit the 12th and 13th hole-in-one's on the season, both accomplished on hole #14.  Stenson hit a 3-iron 223 yards into the hole in round 1, while Yancey hit his 4-iron 213 yards in round 2.

My golfer of the week was Bob Rosburg.  From tee-to-green we played well.  But putting was a disaster.  Rosburg missed two putts inside of 3 feet, two others inside of 5 feet, and seemed to miss one 7-12 foot putt after another over the first two days.  He was the 3rd-worst golfer in strokes gained putting, at -2.1 per round, despite hitting a very solid 83% of greens in regulation.  This led to a 73-67 (-4 total), missing the cut by 2-strokes.  Incidentally, my golfer of last week, Geoff Ogilvy, came out on fire as he scored an amazing 28 (par 36) on the front nine in round 1.  It went downhill from there, including a 78 (+6) in round 3.  But it is believed that the 28 is the best nine hole score on the tour this year.

ROUND 4 (final round):
Wind W@0, Firmness 7.3, Greens 10.0, Rough 2, 67F, Clear
    (Temp adjusted due to not real course for event)
Scoring average for day:  68.70 (-2.30 to par)

At the halfway point of the tournament it looked like a route.  Larry Mize had shot a 61-62 (total of -19) and led by 5-strokes.  But a 3rd round 73 (+2) tightened things up, as he now led by just 2-strokes on John Huston and 3-strokes on David Toms.  This set the stage for a big final round by Huston.  Huston shot a 63 (-8), catching Mize about halfway through round 4, and went on to beat Mize by 2-strokes.  Toms and Bob Charles tied for 3rd place, 5-strokes off the lead.

Joey Sindelar hit the 14th hole-in-one on the season, hitting an 8-iron 172 yards into the hole at #9 in round 2.

My golfer of the week was Vic Ghezzi.  It turned out to be a good tournament for my golfer.  For three rounds the shots were generally accurate, and we put up 66's (-5) in both the 1st and 3rd round.  At one point in the 3rd round we were up to 9th place.  On day 4 the accuracy started getting away from us and we only shot a 70 (-1).  Our 4-day total of -11 was good for a T26 finish.

Of course, the most exciting part of finishing the Atlanta Classic is that it means it is now MASTER'S WEEK!  On to Augusta!

Thanks! Yes, I am really enjoying it. A quarter of the way done now with this season and now I start getting into the big tournaments. I eventually want to get through all the courses from the GameCo plus Community Courses that have at least been used on the PGA tour at some point in their past. I figure it will be 3-4 seasons to get through all of them given that many tournaments have a dedicated course. Glad to hear that there are still people following along!

APRIL 11 (Wednesday) --- EXHIBITION
THE MASTERS PAR 3 @ AUGUSTA NATIONAL GOLF CLUB (PAR 3 COURSE)
Wind SW@10, Firmness  6.9, Greens 12.0, Rough 0, 76F, Light Rain
Scoring average for day:  52.37 (-1.63 to par)
94 golfer field - invitational field
     (Tour winners; past Masters champs; 4 wins - Majors; 30 PGA wins; top 50 OWGR points; then fill field by HOF with highest rating)

Harry Cooper led most of the day, after he teed off early and then scored birdies on the first 5 holes.  He nearly made it the first 7 holes as he barely missed a 7.5 foot birdie putt at #6, then birdied #7.  His irons were on fire as he hit 11 tee shots within 11 feet of the hole, on his way to 10 birdies and a double bogey to finish with a 46 (-8).  Then later in the day another old-timer, Henry Picard, showed up with a red-hot putter.  He hit 7 putts over 10 feet and took only 21 putts on the round.  He had 5 straight birdies from hole #11 to 15, and was leading by 2-strokes going to #18, but took a double bogey after hitting his tee shot in the pond.  He actually had to get up-and-down from the sand to force the playoff.  Replaying hole 18, both golfers hit to the left side of the green with the hole top right, leaving putts over 30 feet.  Cooper put his at the bottom of the hill on the two-tier green, though, while Picard was on the top tier.  Cooper 3-putted, missing a 7 foot par putt, while Picard hit a 5 foot par putt to win the exhibition.  Another old-timer, Jim Barnes, finished in 3rd place, 1-stroke back, while the quartet of Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Paul Runyan, and last week's tournament winner, John Huston, tied for 4th place.

Two golfers had hole-in-one's.  Brad Faxon hit a lob wedge 82 yards into the hole at #11, while Billy Casper hit a pitching wedge 147 yards at #6.  Ironically both golfers also had a quadruple-bogey within a half hour of their aces.

Normally I golf as a lowly rated "non-contender" type, but since this was just an exhibition I went ahead and golfed as Jack Nicklaus.  We started very well, with birdies on 3 of the first 4 holes.  But the rest of the round was 13 pars and a bogey, to finish with a 52 (-2).
