Boring Man wins Boring Tournament

Champion of the DullWhen The Masters is won by a dude with a score of +1 you might be excused for feeling like you've been robbed.

Zach Johnson came through the field on a 'dramatic' final day to win the prestigious green jacket. During the pre-presentation interviews you could feel the atmosphere of disappointment coming from not only the Club Chairman but from the announcers as well.

It's all very well making the course as hard as they did this year, but if you make the greens too unpredictable then, a bit like a badly structured game of poker, you turn the damn thing into a crapshoot. I think Retief Goosen summed it up when he said "Zach has been a very good player for a long time" read: Zach is a nobody, "He hits the ball straight, low and accurately - that's what you need around here" (you don't say...) read: Look I told you, this guy is a nobody and I don't know anything about him, just leave me alone!

My favorite moment of the whole tournament cam when Luke Donald, who at the time was only one shot down from the leader, chipped the ball up onto the green three times only to see it role back down the slope towards him, along with his chance to win.

Sometimes this shit just writes itself.

He is boring. He kept thanking Jesus all the time also. I need some excitement.
