They’ll be chasing the kangaroos in the koolabongs tonight

Congratulations to 32-year-old Adam Scott becoming the first Aussie winner of the Masters by winning the sudden death playoff against Angel Cabrera.


Just before the sudden death playoff, veteran golf commentator Peter Alliss was excited when Scott birdied the 18th to go 9 under to take the overall lead  in regulation play from 43-year-old Angel Cabrera who was following up in the final group. Aliss said: “They’ll be chasing the kangaroos in the koolabongs tonight, or whatever they are.”

Yes, just what are koolabongs!!??

In his lifetime, 82-year-old Peter Alliss has been around golf and been around the world long enough and yet still doesn't know too much about Australia.

How ironic that soon after, Cabrera's approach to the 18th was majestic, coming within 3 feet of the hole. “You never get nowhere by being too hasty,” said Alliss. Cabrera birdied that hole to take the 2013 Masters to the sudden playoff.
