2020 Masters (Patron-Free)

I want to go to the Masters this year. Most likely the Mon. or Teu. practice round.

The tix prices on seat geek or stub hub are like 900-1200. Prices on Craigslist are a little less.

Curious is anyone knows about just scalping tickets outside the designated free zone? If I were to show up Monday morning, wondering what my chances are of getting tickets?

Thanks for any feedback!

When I went in 2000, a guy offered me a couple grand for my badge, showed me the wad of cash. I kept walking. I had to sign for the badge at the MP station at Ft Stewart where I was stationed and return it that evening. So, the couple of grand he offered wasnt enough for me to go AWOL and retire in Thailand, I returned it. LOL

😩

 

Welp - now what do I look forward to?

Seriously, my question related to all the schools here closing, and sporting events, conventions, etc. What has to happen for these to reopen?
I certainly hope that someone has set "exit parameters" so they don't just look at a calendar and say everything is okay

The CDC, etc. will advise people.

Well....there goes that trip. Hopefully I can still get my $ back for the hotel I no longer need.

I selfishly breathe a huge sigh of relief.  Normally, we welcome folk from the four corners of the world with open arms (a lotta local people make a lotta $$ MastersWeek) but this year, I've been dreading since I first heard of this trouble.  Presently, the CentralSavannahRiverArea is free of the very real threat of a more populated area.  Imagine how much it would affect area if the thousands were here on every corner, course, restaurant, homes and local festivals.  Sorry but it's proactive action like the others now.

I’m kind of hoping they don’t reschedule for later in the year. As much as I love the Masters it would just feel weird for it be played in the Fall or the dead of Summer.

It has just been postponed if the article I read online is anything to go by.  They still don't have a new date, so let us see what happens

I hope its that simple, but you are talking about thousands of companies, schools, and events - I doubt they are going to have specific guidelines for each situation. 
When would you go on a cruise, when should the senior living centers allow visitors, when can K-12 schools open, colleges, major events in stadiums ... and it differs, somewhat, by community as some will be hard hit and others will have much lessor impacts.
It is easy for a governor (or sport commissioner) to cancel everything, but I get the feeling you don't turn it all back on at the same time.

Why not? Seriously. If people can discipline themselves to stay put it should be enough time for all. I would think individual orgs can decide to extend if they find necessary. 

I doubt if this stops spread altogether. But surely this should bring it down where hopefully the health care system can manage it without being overwhelmed - very realistic scenario if the spread doesn't slow down significantly from all accounts. Also a huge part of the battle is identifying most of those who are pregnant with the virus but have not manifested. I think this goes a long way in let it play out without further spread.

Jack Nicklaus said he thinks they will cancel it altogether. I also think the PGA Championship and US Open are also in doubt given both are in California and New York, two big states that already have a lot of people with the virus. But I think Nicklaus is right in that it will likely just be cancelled.

    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
    • Day 50 - Hitting more balls indoors, just trying to get used to swinging indoors. 
    • We used lugloc and used it Hawaii to Scotland, Hawaii to Sydney, to Auckland and Hawaii to Pinehurst to Alabama to Hawaii, and a few west coast trips. I think when we landed in Edinburgh it took a 1/2 hr to confirm but was able to confirm at JFK, and heathrow. I have lost clubs before on a mainland trip and love seeing that the clubs and luggage are with me.    Aloha, iSank
    • Day 124.   I spent ten minutes after work hitting 7-iron shots, off a mat, into a net, real balls, indoors.
