2022 Masters

I spent a couple of decades applying for Masters tickets.  Eventually got tired of the endless rejections.

 

Erik, I have a photo I took with a very nice Nikon, of the 9th hole at Pinehurst #2.  Been using it off and on for my PC desktop since I took it, just after the restoration.  Nowadays it seems to me that most folks bring a "camera" with them to tournaments - their phones.  When I see them watching the tournament through a phone, I think, "Isn't the actual tournament better than your phone?"

Anyone getting their rejection emails yet for the 2022 Masters?  I have a few friends that have, but I have not.

They told me I have a better chance of getting kicked by a snake then being allowed to set foot on Augusta National.

For a practice round a camera can be great, especially if you have a small bookbag or something so you can stow it away sometimes too.

The issue with a camera is you can miss a lot of good live action trying to frame a shot for the camera.

I’ve never once gone through our wedding pics from 16 years ago. I feel like it would be the same sort of thing…maybe, maybe not 

Off-topic, but my wife would love a chance to see our wedding photos.  Problem is our photographer got hospitalized and he sent his newly hired "Apprentice" who spent too much time at the bar.  Several bad photos, some staged shots never captured, we think he forgot to put film in the camera (Yes, I said FILM, I've been married 32 years).

There's not a lot of "good live action" on M-W. And most people are just taking photos of the golf course itself.

I'm just gonna get in as a walk-on

Does anyone remember that photo from about 10 years ago that showed a guy walking across Washington Road with his beginner set of golf clubs on a  buggy because he had secured a ticket for one of the practice rounds? It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I've tried to find it but can't.

I don't remember this.  He thought the ticket meant he could play a practice round?

    • Here is the overseed schedule if you're looking for more courses... https://snga.org/2021-overseed-schedule/  
    • What would happen to the bad putter?  He makes a few more but maybe his bad misses that get knocked off line even further cause him to 3 putt a percentage of them?  I know probably not from 5 feet, but if you apply the logic to all putts and not just 5 footers?
    • Make sure you hit up the souvenir tent. I hear it is huge and only 10% of the items can be bought outside of event. 
    • Focused here on making clubhead go more up and right post impact, it's been a bit low and left lately as evidenced by videos above. Steep from the top, grrrr. Keys #4 and #5 are hard. There's a swing alignment stick in the sky, lol.  
    • I have not seen anything about that.  I actually am the guest of a business supplier of ours. They invited me and one other person to attend, I am currently working on finding a +1.  Haha
