Something to Truly Cheer About

This Master's was one for the books. With all the pre-tournament hype thrust on the multiple adulterer Tiger Woods, it is fitting that a the winner was a man fighting through his family battles with breast cancer - not only with his wife, but his mother as well. Phil hadn't even played that well in the past few months but for the first time in 11 months his wife and kids came with him to the Master's tournament and it helped boost his game. His wife Amy didn't even come to the course the entire four days until the last possible minute to be there for the final 18th hole.
And Phil's play? What many of his fans have always wanted from him. A gutsy scrambling show that stood sports on its ear. A truer champion cannot be found.
