CONGRATULATIONS to Danny Willett, Sunday's unexpected winner at Augusta National.
Almost nobody could see beyond one of golf's current top names winning the Masters – and, to be fair one of them, Jordan Spieth, should indeed have retained his title.
Instead, the likeable Texan had to grin and bear it as he eased his English successor into the famous green jacket.
Without Spieth's catastrophic quadruple bogey seven at the par-3, 12th hole, everybody else, including Willett, would have been playing for second.
However, I have no doubt whatsoever that the 2016 Masters will be remembered for Willett winning it, rather than Spieth losing it.
Which is fair enough, and as it should be.
I am, however, reminded of the 1999 Open Championship at Carnoustie.
If you need your memories jogged, it was won by Paul Lawrie.
In this instance, however, it is indelibly etched in most people's memories as the Open which Jean van de Velde lost.
Why? Because with the Claret Jug almost in his grasp, he ran up a triple-bogey seven on the last hole.
The outcome was a four-hole play-off in which Lawrie beat the shell-shocked Frenchman and previous Open winner Justin Leonard.
As with Spieth, water was involved in Van de Velde's downfall – this time the Barry Burn.
As with Willett on Sunday night, Lawrie posted a last round 67 to put himself in with a chance in the unlikely event of the runaway leader slipping up.
Admittedly the two events weren't exact parallels.
Lawrie was long off the course by the time Van de Velde imploded so spectacularly - although his canny late coach, Adam Hunter, had spotted tell-tale signs long before the leader reached the last hole and made sure his golfer was well prepared for any eventuality.
Willett, by contrast, had to retain his composure over the closing holes as it became apparent that he did, after all, have a chance of winning his first major.
He did so brilliantly.
But then so, too, did Lawrie in the four-hole play-off at Carnoustie.
I'm not trying to take anything away from Willett – far from it.
But it does strike this old Devel's Advocate that the reaction to his triumph has been of an entirely different nature to that afforded to Lawrie 17 years ago.
