    There's one tradition at the Masters that doesn't generate as much attention as, say the Par 3 Competition or the Champions Dinner, but is no less exciting. It's the lottery that takes place to determine which media members covering the tournament will have the opportunity to play the course on Monday, just hours after the players have cleaned out their lockers. Check out this story by Steve DiMeglio from USA Today summarizing his experience playing Augusta National as an 8 handicap yesterday.

    FootJoy player Lorena Ochoa dominated once again, closing with a final round 4-under 69 Sunday to win the Corona Championship in her native Mexico. Ochoa fired four rounds in the 60's (66-66-66-69) to finish with a 25-under 267 total for a convincing 11 shot victory. She has now won three tournaments in a row and four of her first five to begin the year. During those four victories, Ochoa has won twice by 11 shots (also at the HSBC Women's Champions) and three times has shot all four rounds in the 60's. The victory was also her second in three years at this event and 21st of her career. With the win, Lorena qualifies for the LPGA Hall of Fame, becoming the second youngest player to do so, although she still must be a tour member for 10 years (in her case, 2012) to become eligible for induction.

    Whether you are among the thousands of fortunate patrons in Augusta or one of millions watching from home, the final round of the Masters is always a must-see event. And this year was no different. With unpredictable wind gusts combining with tricky pin placements and the pressure of playing on Sunday at the Masters, players moved up and down the leaderboad as scores increased. In fact, the scoring average on Sunday (74.67) was more than two strokes higher than Saturday (72.58), the fourth largest increase in Masters history between rounds three and four. All in all, a very entertaining week for players and fans, and, unofficially, the beginning of the golf season nationwide. We hope you'll continue to visit the blog this year for all the latest news, images, interviews and insider information.

With many player chasing their first major championship, you can expect the final round to be full of drama. While Saturday began with rain that caused a suspension of play, it wasn't long before the skies cleared, the conditions softened slightly and players once again tried to take advantage of the few birdie opportunities the course yielded.
