AUGUSTA-In sports, the neglected history fascinates us. On the eve of the final round of the Masters, Xander Sc Chaudele took four shots in the head, believing in his chance. Those who are ignored. .
The 27-year-old golfer has participated in the US Masters for the fourth time in his career, but he still keeps in mind his 30-second glory at the Augusta National Golf Course. Before a certain Sunday in April 2019, it was ranked in the bottom nine positions. Tiger Woods returned to history by winning the 15th Grand Slam championship and the fifth green jacket, setting a record.
When he recalled his third birdie to the 14th pennant, thirty seconds was not enough. When Woods set sail, there were twelve big guns on his trail.
ScHotele was one of them in the second race in Augusta. But everyone knows this story. Tiger’s, of course. do not have this. Except for his parents, his grandfather or grandmother are joking.
Xander tied for second place with Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson. After the final round of the game, his ten fingers were enough to count on reporters attending the press conference. Others are waiting for Woods. No problem, he smiled in his ear.
Since the beginning of his professional golf career in 2017, the compassionate Californian has participated in seven top 10 Grand Slam tournaments, including six top five. After finishing runner-up at the 2018 British Open and the 2019 Masters, he is patiently waiting for his turn.
Is it finally possible in Augusta?
“I made a beginner’s error on par 3 on the 16th hole. He missed a four to five foot roll after signing the 68 (-4) card, especially due to the 60-foot roll 15 The number of eagles.”
“In the final round of 2019, I was taken away from the current heat. I am happy that this happened in my career and not late. I think I learned from that moment.”
After catching a birdie on the 14th hole, he couldn’t buy it again. This is the meeting point of tiger history.
On Sunday, he will have a lot of things to catch up with Matsuyama. The 29-year-old Japanese accumulates -11 points with a maximum of 65 points (-7), which is the best result of the day, and he is also seeking the first coronation ceremony in his career. As long as he has been waiting…as is the Asian media. The irony is that he can get there when there are only a small number of Japanese in the game. Usually, they are an army gathered around the hero.
The history of the American Masters tells us that the leader wore the green jacket 47 times on the second day after 54 holes. Since 2013, 13 of them have been passed.
