Geoff Ogilvy On Adam: "He's so balanced he's never sweated the small stuff."

Jaime Diaz talked to Geoff Ogilvy about his friend's Masters win.

You may recall it was Scott who returned from the airport to Winged Foot when Ogilvy won the 2006 U.S. Open.

That road led to a monumental Sunday in Augusta, and if Ogilvy's projections are right, more majors. But probably none will be as meaningful as last Sunday's.

"This is a big day for Greg [Norman], especially," said Ogilvy. "It's very appropriate that of all the Australians, it was Adam who did it, because he is the closest of all of us to Greg. 

Right now, I know Greg is 100 percent joyous."

It's just so hard NOT to root for these guys. Scott, Ogilvy, Day. They are such decent and intelligent guys and fantastic golfers. Dare I say they make up for the Greg Norman ego we've had to endure for the last 30 years?

I've loved watching and cheering for the Aussies ever since the Shell Open years ago. Stuart Applebee was set to win (or was it Robert Allenby?) and his mates came out to the 18th green to win. You would never see Americans do that--too busy rushing to their private planes. The Aussies just seem like good guys.

I like the Aussies as well, but just last year Crane and Fowler followed Bubba.

I believe in that tourney Allenby was leading and Appleby followed - I recall him doing a Blazing Saddles gag.

It may make me a bad person but I absolutely didn't want Day to win.

It is painful watching him play so slowly.

I didn't like the idea of him winning in a tournament where they penalized someone for slow play.

Aside of that; I lived in Australia for a year after college.
It is a great country with great people!!

Stiggy....Day might just be the single most overrated player in professional golf. I hope you didn't worry too much because there was no chance he'd win The Masters.

DTF -- for the second time, there was every chance Day might win the Masters. There may be more to come. So don't ge your knickers in a twist. It took Phil a few close ones, too -- and now he is considered the Masters "expert" -- in the Woods era.

It's golf, mate. People like Ben Curtis and Todd whatever win majors. Adam Scott was a major waiting to happen and, unlike some of the others for whom the same is true, he got there first.

Day, Fowler, the rest of the potentials may or may not be lucky enough. But they will be there and thereabouts. Day may or may not be the one some day. Slow or not.

Del, not as long as ol' Jet Ski is still playing.

"knickers in a twist" or panties in a pod, good 'ol DTF can absolutely be counted on to regularly churn out bizarre statements.

The notion that Day had "no chance" to win the Masters is absurd.

He is a man who has significantly figured in two Masters Sundays.

He may or may not break through one day, but he does deserve respect.
