Jack Nicklaus proves once again that he is one of the best golfers the world has ever seen! During today’s Par 3 event prior to the 2015 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, Jack Nicklaus scored a hole-in-one at the 4th hole! It was a thrill for everyone there and those watching on television! Good luck to all of the players in this year’s tournament.
After J.B. Holmes was at the top of the leader board for most of the WGC Cadillac Championship, I think it was expected that he would win the tournament, but Dustin Johnson had other ideas. Dustin Johnson was five back at the start of the final around, but after Holmes had three bogeys in his first six holes of the day, Johnson took advantage and won his ninth tour victory.
Rory McIlroy is the number one golfer in the world right now, but that doesn’t make him perfect. He started off slow during the first nine holes at the Honda Classic, but he ended the day with birdies at the 17th and 18th. He starts today at 4 over and I think he will have a much better day on the course!
Atletico Madrid practicing and holding a press conference prior to tomorrow’s UEFA Champions League match against Bayer 04 Leverkusen. I think Atletico can beat Bayer, but it will probably be a tough match.
Joey Logano led several laps and raced the high side of the track which is very hard to do. Logano was able to get the lead after a restart and finished under a caution. The last few laps of the race were some of the most exciting I’ve seen at a Daytona 500. Congratulations to Joey Logano on winning his first Daytona 500!!
During the Real Madrid vs. Schalke 04 champions League match, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal of the match for RM. It was an awesome header and put him in 3rd for all-time leading goals for the club. Now at 290 goals, I see Ronaldo continuing his climb to the top of that list!
During this afternoon’s Alert Today Florida 300, there was some serious drafting by Brad Keselowski, Ryan Reed, Kyle Larson, and Chris Buescher! Ryan Reed won the race, which was also his first career victory, after passing Keselowski on the the final lap. He also edged out his teammate Buescher for the win.
With goals from Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, and Wayne Rooney Man Utd win the their 5th round FA Cup match today against Preston North End, 3-1. Man Utd was playing away for the match, but that didn’t seem to hurt them at all.
Brandt Snedeker wins his 2nd Pebble Beach Pro-Am with a final score of -22. He beat Nick Watney by 3 who was doing his best to take the top spot, but fell short. With this win, Snedeker is qualified for the Masters. Congratulations Brandt Snedeker!
American teenager Mikaela Shiffrin has become only the third woman ever to win back-to-back slalom world championships!! That is an outstanding achievement in a very tough sport that tests your body and mind every time you compete. Well done and congratulations Mikaela Shiffrin! 🙂
