Wow, that is rough.  I've always wondered how this course looked into and after the summer.  Now I know.  😬

Watch your mouth, errybody knows there's no rough at Augusta

For the first time, Augusta National is offering online shopping -- but only to patrons who are on...


Seems like all of us could find someone with tickets and get Masters gear. I had a friend go in 2010 and my hat could use an upgrade.

I don't know about the National but I've got these twenty minutes away today. (azaleas)

It's weird having The Masters this late in the year, but man am I excited to see how it turns out. I imagine the course might be in a different condition than usual, but it's still just such a unique event. This is one tournament where I'll miss the usual crowds, since the crowds at Augusta aren't the ones shouting about mashed potatoes.

One year I expect someone to shout, "Pimento Cheese sandwich!"

No Laying Up did a pretty cool podcast with Matty Kelly, Marc Leishman's caddy, talking about shots that Marc hits on every hole, and also delving into what Bryson might hit on each hole. Definitely worth the 85 minutes I spent on it. This year is going to be awesome.

An episode of How's My Hand Path? with guest Scott Fawcett, who worked with Bryson, Fawcett talks specifically about some holes, I forget which. I think it was 2 or 3 weeks ago, the episode.

We’ve been making those to snack on while watching. They’re actually pretty good.

Not sure it’ll be much different. The forecast is showing high 70’s low 80’s all four days. Gotta love the South!

Which player 40 y.o. and above you think could have the best shot to win the Masters this year?  Not Tiger I'm afraid. He can't seem to get out of this funk from playing in the early weekend groups. He has had a string of tournaments where he barley makes the cut and struggles on the weekend. For the win...I think Paul Casey perhaps. Phil Mickelson I think could win too.  Maybe not win but I think Bernhard Langer and Fred Couples will make the cut.

Lefty....LOL......luv FIGJAM....and so do the locker room attendants......he'll have a few big rolls of C-Notes to hand out this week.

Just heard Matthew Wolfe say there are quite a few cottages around Augusta Nat'l....I didn't know that.

It will rain on and off for all 4 days which favors the long hitters. I am picking Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa, 2020 leaders with strokes gained/approach stat, to win. I am super excited but I don't have ESPN to watch on Thursday and Friday. I have to stream to watch featured group and Amen corner holes.

    • 94 posted rounds so far, the vast majority at one or the other of the 2 courses at my home club.  I’ll be a bit over 100 by year end.  we were lucky that Covid shutdowns didn’t have much impact on golf here, so pretty normal.

    • I don’t think I posted on here for this year and goals but I did accomplish a lot this season. My first under par round at -2. My GIR Numbers we’re consistently in double digits. Typically 12-13 per round. I had some long par streaks or better during rounds going 8-10 holes without a bogey several times. My ball striking has reached a level where I feel as though I may look at blades for the first time. My putting has been far more consistent. I have done this by learning to control distance with approach shots. I’ve learned to flight my irons better this year. I’ve utilized the 3/4 punch shot more this season than ever. I’ve dialed in my wedge game. I’ve gotten to the point where I approach greens and hit the correct quadrant and I’m not just happy with on the green anymore. I’ve switched putting grips to the claw for this season and it’s significantly improved putting.    I will set some goals next season but I’m using this as a chance to review the strides I’ve made this season as I’m pretty sure I failed to set goals formally for 2020.    
    • The last round I played we played from one up tee boxes, so like 5,500 yds, relative to par I was about 6-8 shots better than I typically am, but relative to differential it was 3 strokes better than my handicap at the time. But to be fair I also played a nearly mistake free round of golf and holed multiple 10-15 footers which isn't normal for me.
    • For the best chance at a GIR, I would have to say a 6i, maybe a 5i.
    • 4 hybrid.     I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating.  This is what I consider the best way to determine which tees are appropriate when looking at a new course.  Much better than simply looking at overall yardage.  If the tees I’m playing are likely to require more than that on 2 or more holes, I’m probably playing the wrong tees.  For me, that means more than 2 holes over about 415 yards.
