Absolute implosion. He says he wants to take his time and rushes through everything while making God awful decisions. Triple 6. Why he didn't go back to the tee I'll never know. Good Phil, Bad Phil.

Choking like I said he would   He's too agressive, and thinks he can pull of stupid shots.

Bad luck too, that ball bounced off the stands in a bad way, a guy like Woods it bounces off and onto the green.

Point is, he didn't need to try a right handed shot from the shrubs...or the 2nd right handed shot.  Or then be aggressive in the 4th.  Was bringing triple into play by beeing a bonehead...and could've easily made 7.  All he had to do was go back to the tee.

Thinking he can pull off the most ridiculous of shots cost him.  Simple as that...sometimes you gotta get your ego out of the way.

He lost only 1 stroke by trying to kick it out over re-teeing. He goes back to tee he's shooting 3 there. Can't expect a birdie, so he COULD'VE gotten a 5. Only difference was his kick out shot that almost hit him and barely moved a couple feet.

Is he cooked? With his back 9 yesterday....you can't count him out being only 4 strokes off the lead. BUT...Obviously his chances of winning the Masters has dropped...but not cooked or out.

Best of Luck guys

The difference is, without a perfect 5th to 1ft...he could have been looking 7 or 8 dead in the eye.

Again...only lost ONE stroke there by not going back to tee...and that was when he firstly tried to kick it out if the bamboo, but only managed a foot or two.

You're missing the point.  His belief that he can pull off any shot...brought in the possibility of 6-7-8.  Going back to the tee would have brought in the chance of scoring better.

Why look at what COULD have happened?! He made a tripple...in theory could have made only a double by going back to tee. Sticking with the theories here...Phil could've made a 4 had he punched it out on 2 to a spot where he could've chipped close for a 1-putt to get single. That theory is what he was thinking. His 2nd was to kick out right of bunker towards fairway to leave a chip and 2-putt...at worst in theory a 5, but it was the 2nd garbage kick-out that went a foot or two that killed his shot.

In theory going back to tee would have been the "easy" 5. YES, he went aggressive with s "difficult" shot at getting 4, with a chance at 5, and unlucky duff from the bamboo 6.

NOT trying to get in an argument with anybody here...this is just my opinion. But I think too many people listen too much to the commentators. They commentate after the fact that it happened. If you are an actual golfer you know that you can use that 2nd shot to make a 4 (with perfect work no less) and most-likely a 5 (if not to perfection) and YES a chance that everything that COULD go wrong...DOES go wrong.

You said it exactly right, point is going back to the tee...he could have knocked it stiff and made 4.  The unlucky duff happened because he was 1ft deep in the shrubs.  I play golf once a week, and have tried that same shot many of times...it never ends well.  When you play aggressive you bring in the possibility of duffs.  Thats my only point.

Knocked it stiff from tee? Have you seen the front placement or seen anybody get close for a birdie in that pin location?! 4 is outrageous. He's shooting 3 off tee with1-stroke penalty.

It was a hazard, he hit 1 into the hazard...2 is pulling it out...3 is re-teeing.  The penalty stroke is already occured.  And if anyone goes back and re-tees and knocks it stiff to that pin...its Phil.

This is a conversation of what ifs.  The only point I was making is being aggressive with the ego that "I can hit any shot" cost him.  Just as quickly as it rewarded him on the back 9 yesterday...it cost him in 1 hole today.

Perfect example...driver off the deck gets him to a position to knock it close and make an easy birdie.  Those are the kinds of shots Phil has the capability of making by being aggressive.

Then next tee shot, he knocks it left.  His driver is always his question mark to me.

It's easy to give up on a less experienced player or dog, but I never give up on veteran champions until the numbers and chances aren't logically there anymore.
