Legendary Leaderboard first round. I don’t care if Tiger did three donkeys and a horse, he’s back!!!! 2 eagles, lowest first round ever at the Masters. And let’s hear it for the old guys, Freddie Couples at 50 and Tom Watson at 60. Plus, Mickelson, Westwood, Choi et al. Azaleas are in bloom and I’m a happy woman. Let’s just play golf!
Tom Watson won the U.S. Open June 20, 1982- the day of our wedding at Pithy Vinegar’s home on 76th and Park. There was a crowd huddled in the back bedroom watching the tournament as we escaped to the Carlyle Hotel’s honeymoon suite. So unbelievable that Watson was a finalist in the British Open last year and on the top of the leaderboard in today’s Masters. Keeps hope alive.
Hampshire College Grad student Molly Koch’s film “Safe As Houses” is a poetic vignette, slice of life gem. It’s worth spending 17 minutes. Click here to watch. Wes Talbot breaks your heart in the lead.
Bon Weekend, I’ll be watching golf.
