    The guy totally lost his driver swing for about 3 years and I now he has found it. A lot of observers said it was a mental issue, but Brandel Chamblee said it was physical, Speith searching for more distance on his tee shot. A lot of guys when they lose their swing never find it again and fade away. Credit to Speith for fighting back.

    I heard on tv last week he also had a hand injury which may have made a difference.

    Too bad they are moving the final round to Colorado (just kidding).

    He stumbled early with that 7, but has steadily gotten himself in position to possibly win.

    The weather break really changed things. Definitely did not benefit Rose and good heavens, Hideki with a 65.

    I'm rooting for Zalatoris.

    If Matsuyama shoots 70 tomorrow he will wear the green jacket.

    He didn't but he did. Yesterday's -7 was the clincher. Zalatoris played a great round today, came up 1 short. Great to see Americans 2-4. Not a bad finish for Cali kid Xander.

    Zalatoris couldn't make the birdie putts on Saturday. His 71 could have been a 66 with a few putts dropping. He did well for his first Masters. He is on his way to becoming one of the good young players.

    But I have to give it to Hideki. He stayed solid most of the day and didn't panic on 15 and saved a solid bogey to keep control.
    Great win for him.
