The Victory Formation:
Use this for all your Masters-y needs. Some quick bullet points…
- Peter Hanson’s playing well, but I fully expect him to pucker up…this is Phil’s tournament to lose.
- Of the contenders, Bubba Watson and Lee Westwood are my favorites to make the leaders sweat. As much as I’d love to see something like last year, I think anyone past -4 is going to have to shoot something silly low to get into contention.
- I have no idea how Henrik Stenson is still at -4…he’s hit some of the worst shots you’ll ever see a pro golfer hit this week.
- Paul Lawrie is just sitting there at 10. He’s had a little career renaissance over the past 18 or so months, but I don’t see a Jean van de Velde on the leaderboard above him.
- Yes, I’m very sad that Rory and Sergio didn’t both shoot 65′s yesterday.
- Tiger and Vijay are paired together today…bet they’ll be a couple rays of sunshine being 12 strokes back with their bff Phil a stroke off the lead.
- My prediction…Phil does his best Arnie impression and gets another jacket in an even numbered year.
BEST OF MAXIM
Bubba Watson had reason to feel like a rock star.
His playoff win at the Masters on the second extra hole stretched into early evening, and when he finally slipped on the green jacket during the trophy presentation, the flashes from so many cameras danced across his face like strobe lights.
''I'm not ready for fame,'' Watson said. ''I don't really...
On Sunday afternoon at Augusta, pink became the new green. Bubba Watson, one of the most popular players on tour, earned his first career major in a big, big way by defeating Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff thanks to an unforgettable shot on 10. After the two players both parred 18 during the first playoff hole, a pair of wayward tee shots at 10 left the tournament up in the air for...
Someone wise once said, “It’s not where you start, but where you finish.” Telling words for all athletes and other professionals who have to endure heartache and failure to be able to achieve success. The road for professional athletes to stardom aren’t always the easiest paths to walk. A lot of athletes are given great athletic abilities from God, but they have to work to...

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist His dad was hoping for a baseball player. The baby boy who popped out was football-sized instead, so chubby and pink that Gerry Watson needed all of 10 seconds to nickname his newborn son ''Bubba.'' Instead of crashing into running backs, he grew up to overpower one of the most iconic golf courses in the game...
Get up, JFK! Due to you going to the ground like a crybaby, the oldies at the PGA will consider making spectators stand under a tent. Am I the only one who thinks Peter Hanson thinks "MMM Bop!" when he swings and drives the ball? [Follow me @TravisHouser]
We always have fun on SILVERMAN: On Sports and tonight was no exception. Bubba Watson, Bubba Watson, Bubba Watson. The Georgia Bulldog is your 2012 Masters champion!
There was a great article by the Sporting News exposing Urban Meyer for the fraud that he is and we not only discussed it, but we actually had a caller that graduated from University of Florida that could not defend...
Lee Westwood joked earlier this week that Augusta National Golf Club, home of the 76th Masters, is "Disneyland for adults." If that's the case, expect Phil Mickelson to be first in line at every ride.
Don't miss these images of the players as they get underway in the second round of the 2012 Masters at Augusta National.

Louis Oosthuizen on heartbreaking loss to Bubba Watson at Masters.
If you won the Masters in Augusta, Georgia on a Sunday, what would you do immediately do the next night?
Based on the picture below, which I just found here at GordonKeith.com, it looks like what Bubba Watson would do is fly to Arlington to catch the stateside debut of Yu Darvish.
Okay, so that’s not the real Bubba Watson (duh), but you have to give the guy props for timing and...
This is why we watch sports. For the train wrecks, the surreal, and the unimaginable.
Bobby Petrino gets in a motorcycle wreck probably crossing train tracks. The wreck is bad, but the cover-up becomes worse.
It’s the kind of stuff that would be hard to write for a screenplay. The least likely scenario turns into a can-you-believe-it soap opera with deception at every turn.
