Big 12 football: Bob Stoops plays Augusta
Bob Stoops played Augusta National during his vacation this summer. He shot 87, which was an improvement over his first trip to the home of the Masters. Stoops shot an “91 or 92″ on his first trip around Augusta.
“The greens killed me my first time,” Stoops said Wednesday during Big 12 football media days. “There’s no rough, so you can’t lose your ball. But when you get to the greens … you hit it to the wrong quadrant or the wrong third of the green, you might as well be 100 yards off.”
Stoops said it’s hard to see all that undulation from television. He said sometimes he would be putting uphill but might not get the ball halfway to the hole, because while you putt very delicately downhill, you have to ram the ball uphill.
Stoops said on that first trip, he reached the No. 1 green in two, then four-putted. That motivated him to start counting his putts. He took 43 putts.
