Here's your April 15th Pin Sheet: C'Mon Aussie, Adam Scott wins Green Jacket. If you read only one column today, make it this one from Sydney Morning Herald sports columnist Richard Hinds:  "In clubhouses and lounge rooms, they will play the putt with which Adam Scott clinched the Masters - his Masters, and Australia's Masters - forever. Then they will play it again, but rewind the tape to 30 minutes before that final putt dropped, and consider the moment that made the man." H/T to Jason Sobel for this amazing photo: From Rex Hoggard, Australia (and New Zealand) rally around Scott:  "On Sunday, however, it wasn’t about Scott’s broom-handle putter that converted a 20-footer for birdie at the 72nd hole to move him to 9 under and force overtime and finally the walk-off in near darkness, a 12-footer for birdie at the second extra hole (No. 10) to secure his nation some peace of mind." In an interesting twist, it was Cabrera who helped turn around Scott's career:  "What Norman would do in 2009 would contribute, more than three years later, to one of the most dramatic playoffs in golf history. Scott was radioactive, playing so badly that he was almost contagious. So Norman connected him with someone whom he thought could help steady Scott's nerves and game: the then-reigning Masters champion, Angel Cabrera." Greg Norman thinks Scott will win more majors than any Australian. In Scott's bag. Dan Wetzel credits Scott and Cabrera for saving the 2013 Masters:  "This was more than who won or who lost, however, because someone was going to win and someone was always going to lose. This was the culmination of an epic finale to an otherwise ho-hum (by its high standards) and controversy-filled Masters; two great golfers draining long putts, making daring chips and restoring not just the roar to the Georgia Pines here, but reminding everyone of the camaraderie of competition." Tiger couldn't make up ground yesterday:  "Though Woods has won four Masters titles, this major seems to tease him more now than any other. He tied for fourth Sunday, meaning he has now finished T-4 or better in seven of the last nine Masters." Brian Murphy says Tiger's still on track to catch Jack. Despite "Zapruder" photos, Tiger insists he took an illegal drop. Good point from Farrell Evans, who writes a Cabrera win would've been a great story, too:  "We're talking about a 43-year-old, former dirt-poor caddie from Argentina, whose only PGA Tour wins came here at the 2009 Masters and the 2007 U.S. Open.  We're talking about a man who wouldn't even be on the PGA Tour if it were not for the exemption for winning that Masters." Bob Harig on the wild week at Augusta. More heartbreak for Snedeker at Augusta.
