Spackler Wins Masters
April 8, 2018
AUGUSTA, Ga – USA native Carl Spackler has won the Masters in a sensational finish. Spackler shot a 69 in round 4 of the tournament to allow him to enter a sudden death playoff with the world ranking leader, Shooter McGavin. Spackler proceeded to win with a miracle 150 yard approach shot that holed out.
Along with winning the Masters in dramatic fashion, Spackler has become the oldest player to have ever won a major championship at the age of 59. The milestone was previously held by Julius Boros, who was 48 years old when he won the 1968 PGA Championship.
Spackler, Bushwood Country Club greenskeeper, said that it feels like a cinderella story, a performance that came out of nowhere for him, especially at his age.
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago,” Spackler said metaphorically, “the second best time is now.”
According to the US Masters Outright Betting, Spackler had a 1000 to 1 chance of winning the Masters while McGavin had a 6 to 1 shot of winning the tournament. However, Spackler has overcome those predictions. Even with his struggles in the past in other previous tournaments, in which a majority of analysts and fans deemed as “failed” performances to a failed career, Spackler kept a positive attitude and pushed on.
“I didn’t fail the test,” Spackler said, “I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.”
Spackler has become an inspiration for every greenskeeper, old or young, looking to spark a light in their careers. We are unsure what the 59 year old has planned for the future but we know one thing is for certain, and that is that when he dies, on his deathbed, he will receive total consciousness. So he has that going for him which is nice…
