The Masters rarely produces a surprise champion. But for the second straight year, the green jacket went to a player who had two or fewer career victories on the PGA Tour before capturing the year's first major. Trevor Immelman kept the lead for three days and nights, which had not been done since 1980 when a young Seve did it. He withstood the pressure from Tiger and the course, at least until his double-bogey when he hit it into the water at the par-3 16th, on a windswept day that had most of the field befuddled. None of the top seven players could break par Sunday. As far as the world number one, well he goes the way of the New England Patriots, with all the hype of a ‘perfect season’ or “grand slam” in this case, ya know, it probably is better to talk about these things after their accomplished because even great accomplishments, or great seasons seem like failures once the bar has been set. Perhaps Tiger will forget the slam and just concentrate on what fairway is in front of him at the time.
