Matsuyama's Caddie Shows Respect to Augusta National
While Matsuyama was heading toward the clubhouse and the fans followed, his caddie did something very significant:




While replacing the pin, he bows toward the course.

Despite the loaded politics heading into this week, he sets an example that I hope society can appreciate.

I'm also very happy to see both tournaments result in Japanese champions during a year where Asian discrimination has been mentioned so frequently. Not for virtue signaling, but to genuinely demonstrate that regardless of race or nationality, we can respect, honor and appreciate excellence.

Video is in the link.

Just a feel good moment.

Are you referring to Morikawa? Hes Japanese descent but he's American by all other metrics.

I don’t discriminate against Asians. I discriminate against the soulless communist bastards running China. They are our enemies.

Furthermore, the Japanese fricking HATE the Chicoms. So they’re Ight in my book. And we ought to allow them to build up their military infrastructure bigly to check China in the region.

Ive been saying since the beginning of this bizarre campaign to stop asian hate that this has to be intended to soften our attitude towards china/communism. It has nothing to do with actual racism.

There is a reverence and nobility in the Japanese in that they lend due respect where it is earned; even and nws their WWII thing.

The Guy earned that Jacket in an honest competition. He didn't get if for being an aggrieved whinner who expects to be given a head start. Good man.

The Woke crowd will be watching him now, contemplating their play to bring him in the coven.

And I remember when a Japanese team won the LLWS about 10 years ago.ALL thier players went out to honor the plaque/statue of the founder of LL baseball and were very gracious to the American team they defeated.

Its called winning with honor and pride and I wish we had more of it in our sports culture.

Call me old fashioned but I’m so sick and tired of the dancing and parading and bull shite in sports today. It adds nothing to the game.

Perhaps you should read The Rape of Nanking to get some perspective on from whence we've come.

I guarantee some of the woke crowd who have been screaming about Asian hate lost their shite when he bowed and actually showed respect to the racist white supremacist property

Perhaps the Japanese of today are different than they were 70-80 years ago. Kinda like how white people shouldn't be held responsible for slavery that ended a century and a half ago and how Germans shouldn't still be paying for actions taken by the Nazis.

I was glad he won. He will be a National hero.
The Asian culture has some things I wished we emulated. Like respecting elders.

It has always disgusted me - started with the antics of Billy "white Shoes" Johnson??? back in the Houston Oilers heyday - At least that is when I first got disgusted with it. Oilers were my favorite team back then, too.

Good ol' short lived exuberance directed at the accomplishment rather than 'look at me' is perfectly fitting - but all this choreographed biullshjit makes me sick.

detracts mightily for me - might as well be a professional 'raslling match.
