A Quest To Find A Master…..Again

April 9, 2013

Here we go again; the most prestigious title in golf is up for grabs to some of the best pro’s in the world including a few rookies who may surprise.

Last years winner and now Oakley Sunglasses ambassador Bubba Watson still feels he can defend his title with being one of the most powerful players in the game to date.  Bubba, aged 34 from Bagdad, Florida won his first Major title almost a year ago to the day beating friend and enemy Louis Oosthuizen in a sudden death play off.  He made an impossible shot on the 10th hole during the play off which secured him this prestigious title. Could he do it again?  The 1.4 million dollar winnings will surely tempt him.

Tiger Woods has answered his critics as of late smashing his was back up the world ranking leader board this year.  Woods has won six times on his last twenty PGA tour appearances and has been confirmed prior to the Masters as the world number one.  Tipped by the bookmakers as favourite, this year you really have to…. watch this space, he also looks good in green.

Tiger Woods was also in the news this week talking to the press about the new protégé from China; Guan Tianlang.  Guan will rob Woods of being the youngest person to appear in a major at just the tender age of 14.  Woods has admitted he was frightened at first and believes the young man from China has great potential for Major wins in the future.  Remember Guan was not even born when Tiger Woods won his first Major at the Master’s 1997.  Woods since then has held the title of first black player to win the masters coupled with the youngest person ever to win the masters.  Could this all change on Sunday?

Oakley will be one of the largest eyewear brands sponsoring the players at the Masters along with the likes of Nike and Adidas Sunglasses.  The bright sunlight can be a big test when staring down the fairway trying to place your ball within a ten foot piece of grass and that’s why golfing eyewear is taken very seriously.  Bubba Watson will surely be snapped in some Oakley Sunglasses this year as has Guan Tianlang on Monday’s practice round.  He was sporting the Oakley Flak Jacket Sunglasses with a polarised grey lens, perfect for the bright light reflecting off the sand.
