Winning: green is the new pink

Charl Schwartzel looked pretty fashionable at the Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday when he wore a bright green blazer. If Schwartzel had browsed Glamour.com, he would have realized that one of Spring 2011's most wearable trends is bold-colored, '60s inspired coats. Though it's doubtful the South African had time to peruse the latest runway looks in between time on the green, in addition to winning the 75th Annual Masters Tournament, Schwartzel won some major style points with his blazer. The green jacket, awarded to the Masters Tournament Champion each year, has to be one of the most unique trophies in the sports world-- it's much cooler than a hunk of metal. Last year, during the Shackelford household's annual spring cleaning, my mother decided it was time to throw out some of the dusty, plastic trophies my sisters and I had accumulated over the years. Sorting through the "hardware," we discovered basketball players with broken arms, plaques embroidered with "Schackelford" instead of "Shackelford," seventh place ribbons from summer swim team, participation trophies from youth soccer, and even a pair of bobble head tigers on pedestals, whose origin was unknown.

Tiger's shot to end a debate

The Masters Golf Tournament, maybe the most prestigious tournament in all of golf, begins today, and this year's storyline is as captivating as it could be. Tiger Woods is not only seeking his fifth green jacket, he is also trying to end a discussion. With a win at this year's Masters, Tiger would establish himself as the most dominant athlete in any sport. Ever. Some have already given Tiger this crown and others will hold judgment until he passes Jack Nicklaus' record 18-major championships, but this week at Augusta will be the clincher for me. First, let's look at what Tiger is up against. Not only will Tiger face off against all of the top 15 players in the World Golf Rankings, he will be teeing it up against the likes of Anthony Kim and Rory McIlroy, some of the best young talent the game has seen in quite some time. The field at the Masters is one of the toughest Woods may ever face.
