2, 4, 6. Unless I can sell the golf clubs for extra income—then 2, 4, 5. I didn’t go with 1 because I’ve been, and it’s great, but I don’t like crowds. Besides, if you’ve been once, you’ve experienced it. Better to have a recliner, fridge, and A/C.

5,4,1.  

I'd try every club every year and sell them w/o remorse.

I'd like to play the course once to say I did but I'd like to go each year to see the festivities and the pros play

Easy 1, 4 and 5.

My stupid heart condition means I don't get to drink alcohol. Boo hoo.

I think playing with John Daly would be a stitch, playing with Tiger would also be great, but I'd rather get to play Augusta. 

Free clubs for life would rock. I'd try out so many clubs. ... I love shiny things.

Free clubs for life, can you imagine that? Being able to play the latest every single year for the rest of your life! You're talking some very serious cash here. Also, annual tickets to the Masters it's probably also some very serious cash, let alone the good benefit it gives you. And also a round at Augusta would top it off.

1, 2, 4.  I am old and financially set.. Gathering experiences is more important than acquiring "stuff".  It would be fun giving the Masters tickets to friends and relatives (assuming ANGC doesn't go overboard enforcing their policy of only the owner/patron using the tickets).

 

Nice topic @nevets88.  👍

Where would the rounds with Tiger or Daly be?  Course of my choice?  Theirs?  What are they like in pro-ams, because I assume that's what they'd be like in the round, too.  Would they be just like someone I'm randomly paired with, maybe saw a few words and look for a lost ball, but otherwise stay out, or are we sharing a cart and chatting?

For 3 and 5, who is paying?  Is this just "some foundation reimburses all your club expenses" or is there some monkey paw nonsense going on?

For item one, am I on the hook annually to pay for the tickets, too?  I don't even know what they cost, but I could probably fit that into my annual budget.  I often would have trouble getting time off of work to go to Augusta every year, although now that teaching online is more acceptable, maybe I could swing it and just every year for a few days in April, my classes are taught remotely from my hotel before I go to the course. 

I rarely drink during a round these days, haven't in almost a decade, and even then, most of the courses I play don't have a cart that goes around to sell beer anyway.  So not that one.

This has been a message from your friendly neighborhood Shindig, ruining everyone's fun on these questions since 2007.

1 and 5 are non-starters for me.  I would love to watch the Masters in person at least once before I die, but it's not such a bucket list item that I would want to tie up a weeks worth of my discretionary time every single year. As for 5, I'm a creature of habit when it comes to my clubs. Once I find something that works, I won't change until it breaks or (in the case of my last set of clubs) gets stolen. 

A round of golf with Tiger is a no-brainer. I can't imagine anyone in their right mind not choosing that. And I would love to get in 18 with John Daly, so that gets second billing for me. 

As to my third choice, it would be a really tough call. A round at Augusta is a once in a lifetime opportunity. But unlimited beer from the cart girl? I would literally be the most popular guy in every single foursome that I was part of.  It's a close call, but unlimited beer gets my last vote. 

Now... upon review of the polling answers, I see that I am the only one that chose this option. Does that mean I have a problem????

Easy!
  • Free Lifetime Beer from Cart Girl
  • 1 Round at Augusta
  • Free Golf Clubs for Life
I like beer,
I like to play golf,
I need clubs (although I just bough new Pings).
I really have no desire to watch golf in person with the crowds. I also have no need to play with Tiger/Daly.
Why do I need pros watch me shank one in the woods or 3 putt?

2, 4, and 5… because you made me pick three. If I stay in the PGA I have lifetime tickets to the Masters, effectively. 🙂 Now, if I can SELL the lifetime tickets, replace the free golf clubs with that option, because that would PAY for free golf clubs (and then some) for life. 😄

And I don't drink beer.

Sorry, I know each of the words individually, but when used in a sentence in that order I cannot comprehend!

1 round with Tigs when he's feeling better 🙂

It doesn't say how many clubs or beers, free means free unlimited IMO...

So, I would think I could get and sell as many clubs as I want and get free beer for all my friends !!!

I have lots of friends who drink beer and play golf... :beer:

I picked a round at Augusta National (although an old set of my Titleist irons once played at Augusta, though I wasn't the one swinging them) and Free Golf Clubs for Life.  I think I'd do 2 years of the free clubs before playing Augusta National.

And I'm curious, does the cart girl with the free beer deliver to the house?

    • Close enough for me. 🐸 Hovland was outside the cut line at +4 after 11, then found an eagle and three birdies to finish at -1 for the tournament. The eagle and one birdie were even chipped in. I like the leaderboard at this point.  Great finish by Zalatoris too, with five birdies on the last 8. Saturday could be interesting. Predicted more wind, showers and even thunderstorms. Leaders are going out into the worst part of it too. BDC finally got something going too, so he's still in it, especially with the weather coming up. Just six back before Saturday. DJ, Rory and Brooks were pretty far out of it.
    • It does. But you can also connect to the computer. I’ve only done that once to download a firmware update a couple years back.
    • Classic doesn’t connect via phone …?
    • Borked?😀 That’s a new one for me. I have Classic, but have not had to do a upload from my Mac. The rounds upload through the app. Maybe I’m missing something?
    • I have a 21 def 3 iron. Hah.
