A big congratulations to Trevor Immelman of South Africa on his win at the US Masters at Augusta, 2008.
A big thank you to HDTV broadcasting the event - the coverage was excellent and the picture, as usual, was perfect. Now all I need is a TiVo/HD recorder so I don't need to get up every morning at 4 or 5am to watch it!
Immelman is the second South African to win the Masters. The last South African to win the Masters was the legendary Gary Player in 1978.
Player was a great inspiration to Immelman and was said to have left a message on Immelman's voice mail during the tournament saying "I know you're going to win." He was right.
Gary Player compared Trevor Immelman's swing to that of the great Ben Hogan.
And yes, I was going for Tiger.
