Dustin Johnson hurt his back earlier today falling down some stairs but hasn't yet been ruled out of the Masters.

*- ElfTwinkle won second place as her 5th golfer (Jon Rahm) shot a 291 and yoyoandcigs 5th (Kevin Kisner) shot a 296


1. LeoDaVinci
2. ElfTwinkle
3. yoyoandcigs


  • Four tippers took both Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia, who both ended up in a playoff to determine the Masters champion, but out of those LeoDaVinci emerged victorious and takes home the gold in this years Masters. Congrats!

  • LeoDaVinci, anchored by Rose and Garcia, also got top-10 finishes from McIlroy and Scott to take the only sub-1130 score to the gold. ElfTwinkle and yoyoandcigs tied for the second spot, as they had the same top 4 golfers, and their tie was broken when ElfTwinkles fifth (Jon Rahm) had a 291, beating yoyoandcigs fifth (Kevin Kisner), who had a 296.

  • The only tipper who took both Rose and Garcia and finished outside the top 3 was George95, who also took world #1 Dustin Johnson, who did not start due to a back injury sustained the day before the tournament started, so he had to take his remaining four that included Bubba Watson, who failed to make the cut.

  • Charley Hoffman was the story on Thursday, going out 7-under par and earning a 4-stroke lead on the field. By the second day, he was tied at the top at 4-under with Fowler, Garcia, and newcomer Thomas Pieters. He stayed at 4-under while the field moved past him on Saturday, and finished tied for 22nd at 2-over after a poor Sunday.

  • After 3 days, it was Garcia and Rose at the top of the leaderboard, and while Pieters tried to make a run late, it was those 2 at the top at the end. On the first playoff hole, Garcia hit a birdie putt to win his first major while Rose bogeyed.

  • The All-Not Taken Team included Charl Schwartzel, Matt Kuchar, Thomas Pieters, and Kevin Chappell, who combined for an 1133 not even good enough for a medal this time around.

  • And so we take a break until the U.S. Open in June at Erin Hills Golf Club in Wisconsin.
