Masters Golf Tournament Goes Nuclear

With the news this week of two new nuclear reactors to be built in Augusta, Georgia, the Masters Tournament’s golf holes could get new nicknames.

Temperatures can get up there pretty good some years during the Masters, but overheating now takes on a whole new concept.

If a golfer hits for an eagle right after a birdie, he is sizzling hot. Dan Patrick would say he is en fuego. Hopefully, announcers won’t overdo it and say that he is so hot he is radioactive.

And, if a golfer takes a double-bogie right after a bogie, hopefully, he is not projected as having a meltdown.

Tiger seeks redemption at this year’s Masters and the crowd will be with him all the way. The public recognizes he has suffered enough for his past moral transgressions. He is on the uptick. The fallout is over and he’s no longer contaminated with a disingenuous reputation.

The second shot at the 11th, all of the 12th and the tee shot at the 13th has been most widely known as Amen Corner. But with Augusta’s newest neighbors, Amen Corner becomes the perfect lead into the ‘Black Hole’ (13th).

Golfers are generators of lots of good shots and heartbreak too. It comes down to their reactivity. When it gets tough, the tough avoid disasters and putt with cooling systems in their blood.

This could be the year a golfer from China surges to the top of the leaderboard. If he starts to run away with the Masters Tournament, he gives the rest of the field one hell of a syndrome.
