Here's a story that I'll guarantee no one else will mention about today's 2nd round of The Masters. A buddy and I were sitting behind #11 tee today when David Toms comes up. He opens up a wooden container next to the tee and pulls out a fresh banana. He peels it, looks at it, then throws it away in the trash without taking a bite. He then went into another box and grabbed an orange juice.
My friend thought maybe it was just a bad banana. The way I see it there are two problems to this theory. 1) If it was a bad banana, he would have gotten a second banana. He didn't. 2) There are no bad bananas at Augusta National.
The only conclusion I could reach is that he knew some of the good players behind him really like the potassium-rich fruit and by putting one out of play, he was in turn increasing his own chances of playing well.
Any other theories out there?
Tiger's Round: Putting, putting, putting. He hasn't really been hot with his Scotty Cameron blade since the Match Play (putt on #18 at Bay Hill aside). If/when he figures it out, hold on.
Stevie's Jumpsuit: For all those ladies out there, I'm pretty sure Stevie was not wearing a shirt underneath his white Augusta jumpsuit today. And for most of the day it was not zipped up very high, giving him a Tom Selleck-y kind of look going. But by the time he reached 18, it was back up again. See, where else are you going to get this sort of attention to detail!
Prediction Recap: I don't really know why I picked Sergio Garcia to finish 2nd in my Wednesday night post. I apologize to everyone who naively thought I really knew something about golf.
