Shell Houston Open Giveaway
By mustang6560 on 3/29/12
Phil Mickelson looks to defend his only victory of the 2011 campaign this week at the Shell Houston Open. With the Masters less than a week away, I imagine Phil is having a hard time not looking past this week in South Texas to next week in East Georgia.
Anyway, regardless of whether or not Phil successfully repeats in Houston, we are still going to have another oobgolf giveaway! Up for grabs is a (SURPRISE!) Goose Golf Towel, courtesy of Goose Golf. To enter the giveaway, simply answer the following question in the comments section below.
What is your favorite thing about the Masters?
All comments posted by 11:59pm Sunday, April 1, 2012 will count in the random drawing. You can leave multiple comments but only your first comment will count as entry. Good luck!

The possibility of Tiger winning another major and thus taking a step closer to breaking Jack's record. After all records are meant to be broken and non of the current crop is as close as Tiger. Until another golfer get's into double digit major wins the buzz at majors is all about will Tiger break Jacks record as Tiger faces father time!
The part where they play golf.
Hard to pick one favorite!
* TV coverage with limited commercials.
* The roars.
* The eagles.
* The back 9 on Sunday.
Watching my Fav. Phil Mickelson run the course...
back nine on Sunday
The Sunday drama of leaders choking and an improbable winner emerging, i.e. Schwartzel, Cabrera, Immelman, Z. Johnson.
The history... and I have to agree "limited commercial interruptions" are a huge win.
Although the majesty and reverence of the Masters is one reason to watch, the pressure exhibited on Sunday afternoon is so palpable as to make one hold your breath!!
All of it...
The course and the tradition! It's the Masters at Augusta!!!
Easily the drama and the final round tee off tension.
The drama and what it means to compete for all the players. This is one of the few tournements that can still make most of them tense in the home stretch if they have a chance to win.

$5.00 gets you a beer and a pimento cheese sammy
hours and hours of coverage...officially spring...
Dr Allister Mackenzie!
This event reveals that these guys are mere mortals afterall. And that one revelation is what keeps a struggling golfer like myself motivated. Afterall, it shows me if they can struggle and overcome, so can I...eventually!
Dang, how many of those towels do you have lying around? Best part is explaining to my wife why this is week is more important than the rest.
The fact that amen corner gives me butterflies even while watching it on TV
Well, it's the Masters! The course is beautiful, the coverage is great (limited commercials) and you can even watch on the internet..
That I get to waste the entire weekend watching great golf on a spectacular course.
It's my b'day... shouldn't I be getting a gift?
my wife lets me have it on
Which ever day that I am watching is my favorite.
I love the fact that all of the players seem to settle for nothing less that winning. That extra bit of determination makes this tournament better than the others.
John Daly set up across Washington Rd selling t-shirts and memorabilia out of his motor home.
That it takes nearly flawless golf to win.
All of it.
the back 9 on sunday, only have to look back a year to see what i mean
Less "get in the hole!" nonsense...
The course itself. I don't know if it's the most beautiful course in the world, but I think it's up there. One of these days I'll have to see it in person.
watching the Amen Corner live online from my desk at work.

Looking for that big crane-arm thingy that pokes up in the air and speculating what the hell its for.
psssh...what am I saying. I do that for every tournament.
i like it all.
Yeah, everything, that's why it's called the Masters.
I love the Masters because it means winter is now a distant memory and (for me) the golf season is in full swing (no pun intended).
The faxt that they end late enough so I can play 18 and still have plenty of TV to watch.
