my usual excitement-filled Sunday at the Masters turned into a snooze thanks to DJ being absolutely bulletproof....

I didn’t get to see as much live coverage as I might have liked but I really enjoyed this masters. I’ve got two rounds on tape and I’ll watch them back tonight and tomorrow. My favorite part (aside for the golf) was the additional sight lines you could see of the grounds without the patrons. I missed having them but it wasn’t all bad.
Also, the absence of patron observation stands really opened up the course for viewers. And CBS showed a good number of overhead shots of the course and grounds which was different.

Finally watched the post round interview and I loved it. We talk about how this guy just goes about his business on the course no matter what is happening. But you can see just how much this means to him. It was anything but a "yeah Im happy to win" statement we expect from DJ.

I find Amanda unnecessary to the CBS team. She seems like a nice person but I’m unsure to what she adds to the coverage. There

I find it pretty damn remarkable that DJ can hold himself together the way he does on a golf course mentally. The golfers who show low emotion have something I sure as hell don't know how to possess hahaha, and there are definitely a few of them out there.

To see him show that the other side of it isn't THAT far away is a great chapter to explore... because it sort of buries the claims that he just doesn't care.

I thought he had a few deep exhales on the course and backed off a couple putts. The post-round interviews should put the not caring comments to bed. DJ will never be my favorite player for reasons unrelated to golf, but it sure is spectacular watching him play!

it was a disgrace that CBS did not show all 10 of Tiger's shots on the 12th -- it will go down in Masters folklore
All of them will live on masters.com

All of them.

I don’t even think Austin made it off the green before he got some dust in his eyes. Not sure how he kept it together the whole round. I like to think DJ just acts like he’s been there before. Or does the exact opposite of Koepka and Bryson’s self-flattery.

haha, I don't think Austin made it off the 18th tee before he got dust in his eyes.

Looking back at the two fall majors of 2020, we’ve been treated to a great display of golf by the leaders in the final round. It may not be the most exciting finish, but Bryson and DJ flat out executed on Sunday.

Next year going to be epic - DJ DT Rahm DB and all these young guns coming on. Maybe even a Woods resurgence again. I think Wolff who fell off here gets a major next year.

Dustin chasing history today was pretty damn exciting for anyone who doesn't hate him :ROFLMAO:

Why all the hate for the guy is beyond me?? I think he's got everything .... an awesome game, a hot soon to be wife, $$$, etc. I just don't get it.

We will see him with more green jackets in the coming years as long as he keeps his head & emotions in check

Very happy for DJ. Helps validate an already impressive career. When DJ is hitting on all cylinders like that, he’s close to unbeatable.

My favorite quote from the post round interviews was when Austin was getting emotional and DJ said he told him to pull it together because he still had to finish out 😂

Impressive to say the least. DJ showed fantastic poise and played his @$$ off.

Good on TW for finishing in style and not shying away from the question about 12 in the postgame.

I think he keeps things bottled up. I would be nervous talking to people too if I knew everyone thought I was kind of stupid. Today it just overflowed and I thought it was awesome. He has really handled himself well this year and definitely took the high road when Koepka took a shot at him. That one probably even hurt his feelings a bit honestly.
