Mize Memories, Mashie and Amen Corner

Hometown boy Larry Mize won the Masters in 1987 with an incredible chip to beat Seve Ballesteros & Greg Norman in a playoff. Check out his scorecard today as he mashed his way around Augusta National.

Larry Mize. 6 pars, 5 bogeys, 1 double, 6 birdies = 73 
5 over on 4 straight holes on front; 4 under on 4 straight on back (Praise Amen Corner!)

Mize has an 18 degree Cleveland Mashie hybrid in his bag which is getting rave reviews on various golf forums. It's definitely on my list to audition for my bag this year. If it can help a 52 year old Masters Champ then why not a 43 year old hacker like me.

So who else finds it unbelievable that so far Larry Mize is better than World #1 Martin Kaymer this week? Kaymer is trailing the '87 Champ by five strokes going into tomorrow's second round.
