The 2019 Masters came down to two best friends Craig Colbert and JK Miller. They have known each other for years and have played together in hundreds of rounds. Ever similar to myself and Lonnie Knowles. But, the major difference, Lonnie & me want to kick the shit out of each other, whereas Craig and JK were actually cheering and rooting for each. Something my competitive juices would never allow me to do. All I want to do is to choke Lonnie out. So I guess I am a little jealous and envious of them. Ok, enough of the bromance stuff. Let's dig inside the numbers of the 2019 Masters. The two early round front nine leaders were Rodney Griggs and Roland Turner. But, a pair of back nine 44 debacles, wash their chances of a white jacket. Gabe Ramos, 2014 Masters Champion was sniffing around the top of the leader board. But, went 4 over the closing holes to finish in 3rd place. Miller was up 4 shots going into the 12th, which is the 3rd at Colonial in Fort Worth, but he triple bogeyed and bogeyed 13 to square the match. They went all even until 17. The famous par 3 at Oak Tree number 8. Craig missed a two-footer tap in that loop around the cup and popped out. They both bogeyed the Blue Monster, just like everyone else in the field and James Miller is the 2019 Masters Champion thanks to his Best Friend, Graig Colbert. Congratulations JK on your win at The Masters!
Jeff Lemons wins the 2019 Masters by 3 shots, but it was with some controversy over the rules. Jeff was changing his golf when he reached the green to his"putter ball" he did this throughout the match. But it was not brought up to anyone's attention until the match was over. The Rules of Golf are largely enforced through the honor system, with players self-reporting infractions. If a player doesn’t self-report or is unaware of a violation, another individual may report the infraction. Typically, the infraction must be reported immediately in match play and before the competition ends in stroke play. Penalties usually are not assessed when infractions are reported too late -- unless the infraction results in a player’s disqualification. So we took it to the board and the ruling was 3/2 in Jeff's favor. If you see a player who has made an infraction, do not wait until the round is over to address the problem. This was a close race for the White Jacket this year in the B-Flight. Nine of the ten players were in 7 shots of each other. Joe Hart was the club leader at the turn, but his 46 on the back was not quite good enough to overtake Jeff. It landed him in a second place finish with Jayme Gonzalez. Jayme was pretty upset with the board's decision and with me. Jarrod Ballou voted against the decision. But I am 100% percent behind the decision. And with that being said Congratulations Jeff! You are the 2019 B Flight Masters Champion!
