Week #15 – Sports

Did you have a favorite sports team as a child? If so, which one and why. Did your parents follow the same teams? Do you still support the same teams? This challenge runs from Saturday, April 9, 2011 through Friday, April 15, 2011.
 Sports ~ last night's big finish ... the  AUGUSTA GA -- MASTER"S Tournament  For the better part of two hours Sunday, he was that Tiger Woods again.(now-35yrs old)
The one who boomed drives off every tee box, threw darts at flags stuck in the toughest spots on golf's toughest greens and pulled in spectators from every corner of Augusta National the way a magnet gathers iron shavings. For a while, anything still seemed possible.
Woods birdied three of the first five holes and in quick succession, the par-3 sixth and long par-4 seventh, then hit a fairway metal nearly 280 yards from the fairway on the par-5 eighth to 8 feet. He rolled that one in for eagle.

Woods finished each of the first three rounds of the Masters saying that all he needed to win this thing was a good start. And now, two hours after turning for home following a blistering 31 on the front nine — and a tie for the lead at 10-under — that was all it turned out to be.

''It was a nice little run there,'' Woods said after posting a final-round 67, still hoping for a spot in a playoff that never happened.
It was nearly 6 p.m., by the time Woods walked off the 18th green, the sun already dipping low in the sky. A half-dozen pairs, including eventual 26-yr old South African winner-- Charl Schwartzel, were still out on the course.
