Let's Skip To Day 5
Trevor Immelman is one of the best golf drivers on the tour. You may ask why people don't name him as one of the elite players on tour. It is because before coming to Augusta he was a horrible putter. Now he has shown how good he is, while wearing a beautiful green jacket.
Trevor went 11 under defeating these stars in this order: the comeback star, Tiger Woods,Brandt Snedeker, the 2007 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, and Stewart Cink. Immelman and Snedeker will go on to great careers. It seems funny to me that Trevor Immelman putted the best of his career at Augusta. It proves you can't predict the winner to The Masters.
Immelman is a South African golfer who was born on December 16, 1979 (my birthday's December 18). Immelman was born in Cape Town, South Africa. He took up golf at the age of five. He turned pro in 1999 and joined the PGA in '06. He has won a total of 10 golf championships. You may not know that Immelman tied for 5th place in the 2005 Masters and tied for 6th in last years PGA Championships. Lately Trevor is not new to the top ten.
I know it shocked me that Immelman pulled it off. I told people Tiger would fall and that Mickelson or Poulter would win but no one could predict. 0.10% of ESPN SportsNation chose Immelman to win. Whomever chose Immelman to win, even if they were fooling around should take the next flight to Vegas.
