It’s the Masters Golf Tournament. It’s the second play off hole between Australian Adam Scott and Argentine Angel Cabrera.
The pressure is on. This victory means everything for a golfer. It’s not just that they are insured of being rich for the rest of their life should they win. Even more, they will be remembered forever by golf fans for winning the most important tournament in the world.
Mr. Cabrera hit a beauty into the green, setting up a potential birdie.
As he walked to the green in pouring rain, his opponent Adam Scott hit an even better shot into the green.
Cabrera turned and gestured thumbs up to his opponent.
They arrived at the green. Angel’s putt missed going in by half an inch. Helplessly, he had to watch Scott line up a makable birdie.
Adam struck his putt perfectly and watched it cozy up to the lip of the cup … and drop!
Congratulations to Adam Scott, the first Australian to win the Masters Golf Tournament. Angel Cabrera exhibited per class as he warmly, and sincerely, congratulated Mr. Scott.
In an era of classlessness, let’s savor this epic battle between two classy gentlemen.
