Congrats to Schwartzel. Great fight and tournament by Day and Scott, but it was Schwartzel's day. It was only fitting that he birdied the last hole as it was a splendid round overall. Tough break for McIlroy. Holes 10, 11, and 12 just did him in. Also, great fight by Ryo. He should be proud for a top-20 finish. Also, great tournament for Matsuyama. He certainly didn't play like an amateur at all.

Rory will certainly be back for some more next year, and he won't be the last person to find the glare of the Augusta spotlight too bright. Schwartzel's finish to the round was magnificent, cool calm & composed under intense pressure. A deserved winner.

Big shouts to Ryo & Matsuyama - flew the flag well for Japan. Like McIlroy, I hope we'll see them both feature prominently at Augusta for many years to come.

I find it sad that the media would have posted countless stories about Ryo's success had he made even the top 3 HOWEVER Matsuyama was the top amateur and his story is more like a footnote.......come on JT pave the way and do some serious reporting and not just following the masses.

Matsuyama was the top amateur and his story is more like a footnote

Well, I guess if you don't pay attention to golf, you wouldn't have heard his name. I actually heard about him back in October (or November) of last year when he won the Asian Amateur. I'm not sure if JT mentioned it, but it was on the major news stations such as NHK and Fuji TV. I remember him beating some Australian dude. They also reported something about him being able to possibly qualify to play in the British Open too. And let's not forget the reports about his connection with the people of Sendai and how he will go back and help volunteer. Anyway, congrats to Matsuyama for winning the silver cup as the top amateur at the Master's!
