Smylie Kaufman’s Sunday at the Masters was less than thrilling. The 24-year-old shot 81 in the final pairing with Jordan Spieth, falling from solo second to a tie for 29th. There might be a silver lining for him, though…or an orange lining.

It looks like Kaufman will be receiving a new car via Nissan, according to a tweet from the automobile company Sunday morning. It was Kaufman who described his current car (a 2008 Nissan Murano) on the CBS broadcast from Butler Cabin.

“It drives really nice,” he said.

The new one will likely ride just as nice. Check out the exchange, and his response, below.
