"only negative point... it could always show more shots and more players, but the dvd delivers an excellent summary of the tournament, shows a lot of great golf shots and emotions."
A great highlight DVD

"This is a great DVD for highlights. This was an exciting tournament, considering Woods is unbeatable when leading after three rounds in a major. On the final day, Chris DiMarco almost pulled off the upset, after Woods bogeyed 17 and 18, and DiMarco nearly chipped in his third shot at 18.
My favorite part of the DVD is the coverage of "The Shot", the once-in-a-lifetime chip shot Woods knocked down at 16. The DVD starts out with a great angle of this. The camera used for this video clip was stationed almost at ground level directly across the green from where Tiger hits the shot, so your view of the action is like you are standing on the other side of the green looking in. There's no voice-over or commentating. It's pure video and audio, so you just see Tiger hitting the shot up onto the hillside of the green, and you hear the crowd's roar grow louder and louder as the ball crawls toward the hole until the ball sits at the edge of the cup, then the groan of the crowd as Tiger hunches down pleading for the ball to drop, then finally the ball dropping as the crowd goes crazy and Tiger pumps his fist. I don't know how many times I've rewound this. It's goose-bump material.
There's also a special chapter dedicated to this shot, with comments by Tiger. This DVD is worth the price just for this coverage."

"I loved this disc. The quality of the video is amazing on disc...much better than what you get to see on television. I liked the coverage of the tournament from all the different angles, e.g. seeing the crowd react to big moments from the players. I really can see what it would be like being there...the disc really immerses you in augusta and the tournament atmosphere. You follow the players from preweek events, to the practice tee, and follow the leaders through the tourney. Nothing beats a tiger vs. dimarco show down either. Seeing Dimarco watch tiger blaze through the third round ahead of him and pass him on the leader board. Pretty cool. Watching tiger take control of the playoff hole, seeing jack nicklaus say good bye to one of his favorite venues, and seeing all the great shots of the masters...you can't beat this.
The only thing I wish it had was a flyover of all the holes. I really would like to see that on dvd."
