The golf world, and many out of it, have been left rocked by the news that Jarrod Lyle is going into palliative care after claiming he is “no longer able to fight.”
Top 10 Shots of the 2013 Masters Part 1
Donaldson's Opening Day Ace
Only a select few lucky people bag themselves a hole-in-one at the Augusta National, but Mr.Donaldson managed to do so after just six holes of competitive golf on the famous course. His soaring iron shot was a looker from the moment it left the club face and it only ever looked like having one destination.
Guan Tianlang's Approach at the 10th on Day One
The beauty of this shot was that the freakishly talented 14-year-old was having to play a wood into the awkward 10th green due to his lack of length off the tee. The scrawny Chinese prodigy pulled a phenomenal shot out of the bag though from a hanging lie, and left himself a 15 footer for birdie, which he duly converted. This incredible shot said everything you needed to know Guan's incredible week.
Tiger Woods' Controversial Shot at 15 on Day Two
This shot is the one entry to the list which is based on significance rather than the quality of the shot, though having said that the shot was pretty damn good, as was the illegal re-play. Explaining the whole scenario all over again would be a little redundant given that the whole world must already know what went on, but this simply had to make the cut on sheer importance. Who knows what would have happened had Tiger's third not clipped the flagstick?
Jason Day's Bunker Hole-Out for Eagle on Day Four
In the final round Jason Day shot out of the traps and went about tearing into Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera's lead, and he did so in sublime fashion. His stunner out of the green-side bunker on the second bagged him an eagle which shot him momentarily into a tie for the lead, sending shockwaves around the Augusta National.
Bubba Watson's 20 footer for a 10
Only Bubba could take nine shots to find the dance-floor and then hole a 20 footer for a ten… Hats off to him for plugging away, this 12th hole debacle was the sign of a true champ!
