Thanks for sharing your experience, Steez.
One of my college buddies and I have always talked about the Masters, and the grounds at Augusta, in such reverential tones. We were freshmen in college, rooming together, watching on my 12 inch TV set, when Tiger hit the famous chip on 16. As excited as I’ve ever been watching a sporting event where I had no immediate rooting interest.
I’m glad to hear someone confirm it’s really that cool in person. Me and my college pal may actually make a guys’ weekend of of one of these years. Thanks for sharing.[/quote]
No problem. It was an experience of a lifetime even if you don’t golf or follow golf at all.
I saw Spieth’s hit a woman in the neck on 18. Then make an incredible full swing flop shot over the corner of the bunker. I remember watching his swing and thinking “holy hell he’s gonna crush this”. The control these pros have is remarkable.
Cameras or any recording devices are unauthorized. Which is why the only real footage you see is when the pros come to town. It keeps the mystery alive. I like that about it.
If you enjoy the sport of golf, Augusta National should be on your bucket list of places to visit.
P.S. I’ll also be going to TPC Sawgrass in may.
