    I started to become a DJ fan when he was man enough to look himself in the mirror and admit his flaws.
    And then when he handled all that US Open mess, man I wish I could be like that.
    But now that I saw him, his bro, and Paulina crying like babies, I really see the human side of DJ that he just doesn’t share very often. Wisely probably.
    I usually get annoyed when players from around Georgia act like the Masters means more to them, But I got it with DJ. I actually needed that to appreciate this win as much as I do.
    I’m not a fan of the non passionate.
    We never even really knew If DJ as a kid ever even putted in his imagination for anything. Now we know he did. And it was ALWAYS for the Masters.

      Hey, Paulina knew he was going to win, she showed up in her “Augusta Green” sweater…..DJ has worked very hard and has become a very, very skilled player, we’ll address it a bit more on Wednesday.

        It had that inevitable feeling.

        He sure has worked hard.

        The only thing that takes away from DJs work ethic like so many hard working players are the hogans, Singh’s, Woods or DeChambeaus of the world, who’s work ethic are on another stratosphere, but DJ obviously works extremely hard; he just doesn’t run to the media to tell them all about it.

        What I have not heard anyone say, but I believe but after watching his conference, DJ is in the zone.

        He made every correct decision you can make without racking his brain at all, that part is normal for him; but making practically every decision perfectly, that’s evidence of that special zone.

        Paulina may be a a social media princess but she knows a thing or two about the sporting men in her life. I think she knew DJ was in the zone, so she made her wardrobe decisions confidently and appropriately.

        Look forward to your takes.
