To Putt or to drive, that is the question

<p>Watching the Masters last weekend made me think 'would I rather be a truly great driver or putter?'  Hmmmmm, let me think.  If I were an awesome driver, I would be the envy of every man. Golfers would think I was 'the man' as I blasted my drives 300 plus yards down the middle. On the other hand, it is said that the game is won and lost on the green. The fastest way to decrease your handicap is to become very good on the greens.  I guess it comes down to ego or really wanting to lower my scores. So how about you?  By the way, I was on my way to a well deserved nap as the Masters wore on. My man Kenny Perry was in the lead and I was content thinking he would be the winner.  Then what to my wandering eyes should appear, but Phil & Tiger dueling to within a stroke of the leaders.  Then Kenny takes a two shot lead with only a few holes left.  Angel keeps hanging around, then BOOM a playoff.  Two holes later, not only am I no longer NOT happily asleep, but Mr. Four Bogeys In A Row Perry has lost the Masters.  I was mildly dejected and not even well rested.  By the way, I'd choose the driver.</p>
