Mike Rizzo won the 2017 Masters in a sudden-death playoff against Jaime Villarreal last year. Believe me when I tell you how important confidence is in sports at any level from pee wee to the pros. It is the difference between that shot bouncing off the back of the rim or that putt that somehow does everything but goes in the hole. Sure ability and preparation are keys to success but, confidence is what makes you a winner. Mike Rizzo was oozing with confidence Sunday when he walked up to the registration table and turned in his White Jacket. His exact words were "I will be back to pick up my Jacket" and at 6:30 pm I was placing the Jacket back on him. Mike went out and completely destroyed the field by tieing the lowest round in the history of The Masters with his 64, last year champ B flight Glen Green and also set a league record with the largest margin of victory. Yes, the closest player was 10 shots back Rannel Calixterio finish second with a 74, but don't feel sorry for Rannel he made off with over 1000 dollars with his 2nd place win and he won the Par 3 Challenge. Also getting his hands in the pot with the 3rd place was Hector Gonzalez who was just put in the A Flight. So Congratulation Mike on your Back to Back Championship at the Masters.
Last week I said 'A Rookie would not win the Masters in the B Flight', well a Rookie did, Billy White proved me wrong again. Billy played solid all round he was the only player to shoot under par. He 30 Pu. its and 8 Fairways was good enough to take him across the finish line. Khris Colbert did a Tom Brady and double-bogey 18 to finish a tie for 2nd with the new and upcoming Nathan Wilcox with a pair of 73s. With the new infusions of players in the B flight and a few players from the A flight that are going to trickle down to the B flight should make it a very interesting. Congratulations Billy one Major Down three to go.
