JC: I know who I am. I've done this for 39 years. I know that I'm not warm and fuzzy to everybody. Nor do I really care. I care if you talk to my former players, if you talk to the people who really know me. Yes, we've made some mistakes in our program. And I'm responsible for anything that happens, whether I know or don't know.
• One and Done
Charl Schwartzel thinks "all you have to do is two-putt" is one of the dumbest statements in golf. "That's all you have to do?" said Schwartzel, 26, who needed to two-putt on the 18th green on Sunday to win the Masters. "You have a 14-foot putt, and the greens have been trampled on all day. You're standing over this putt thinking, How am I going to two-putt this? I actually thought, Why don't you just make it? That will make things a lot easier." Schwartzel sunk the putt to win by two strokes.
• Kid is all right
Rory McIlroy's Masters collapse was hard to watch (POINT AFTER, page 70), but CBS and GOLF MAGAZINE's David Feherty dined with his fellow Northern Irishman on Sunday and thinks the 21-year-old will be fine. "If you grew up where we grew up—I was the assistant pro at Holywood [Northern Ireland] 19 years before Rory was born there—you need a keen sense of the absurd," Feherty says. "[McIlroy] said if that's the worst day of his life, he's a whole lot luckier than most people."
• Line of the week
Jim Nantz of CBS, on calling the Masters since 1986:
"I broadcast this week from the heart, and that's the only way I know how to do it. If it's too sappy or syrupy, then I'm sorry if you just don't get it."
