Probability Zero

This year’s Masters had little back nine drama; but it did have some eighteenth hole pyrotechnics. I was inspired to write a few verses about what Rory and Collin did.

PROBABILITY ZERO

The Masters winner 
Scotty Schef
Clearly better
Than the rest.

But, Rory and Collin,
Though neither the hero;
Both holed out from the sand—
That has probability zero.

Their sequential shots
Thrilled the 18th crowd,
Which responded with roars
Much louder than loud.

Though for TV viewers,
Faldo stole Rory’s thunder;
Morikawa’s great shot
Quickly restored the wonder.

Like Tiger’s chip on 16
In two thousand and five;
Again, a “once in a lifetime”
Hope you saw it live.
