The state of Alabama is well represented at the 2017 Masters at Augusta National, with defending champion Danny Willett (who played at Jacksonville State), former University of Alabama golfer Justin Thomas and former Auburn Tiger Jason Dufner all competing.
Willett won the Masters previous year in just his second trip to Augusta National after finishing tied for 38th in 2015. But Willett did shoot a bogey-free, 5-under-par 67 in the final round to take advantage of Spieth's struggles.
"We've had two fabulous years and then you have a little bit of a downturn and it feels like the world is coming to an end".
This year, he has three top-10 finishes and one win in his nine PGA Tour starts.
From an awkward stance on the edge of a fairway bunker on the first, Willett shanked his second shot into the trees, from where he executed a good escape shot which ran just off the left-hand side of the green.
Willett knew he needed some help from the "golfing gods" to avoid suffering the same fate as 2003 champion Mike Weir, but his long wait ultimately proved in vain - although he will stay until Sunday to present his successor with their green jacket. He opens his first round at 12:24 p.m. on Thursday and will tee off at 9:06 a.m. on Friday as he plays with Matt Kuchar and amateur Curtis Luck in the first two rounds.
"I could have gone a bit off the wall and a bit insane, but I want people to actually enjoy what they're going to have and for it not to be too different to what they would enjoy and what they would like", Willett said on Twitter.
Also, it looks like Bubba switched from a pink golf ball to a yellow one to hit the skip shot.
