I don't know of any hotels but i know people rent out their houses.  A nice place that can keep 5-6 people can get up to $15,000 for the week.  Obviously a huge week for the community and there are a couple housing associations that inspect and fix up the houses before the tournament.

Hotels are probably all booked by now, might have to search further outside of Augusta.

I can't remember the exact hotel I stayed at in 2008, but I know it was about 20 minutes down the highway from Augusta. If you haven't been before, augusta is a relatively small town...so the options are minimal. The closer you stay, the more expensive it will obviously be. I would suggest just jumping on expedia or one of those sites and doing a search. Cuz I have no idea what you're budget is. But I just realized that I recently responded to your post about not having the money for lessons, so you may end up staying in Ohio. ha ha! Just playing with you. good luck...times a running out so most hotels will be booked up and pricey!

Yeah, if you're talking about this year's Masters, then good luck.  Try Macon or Columbia.

I think he lives in Columbia, which would be convenient for him. :-D

Depending on what you're willing to accept you can find a room in town even as late as tournament week.  It'll be in the bad part of town and the room will be crummy (and you'll pay more for it than you should), but you can find a place to stay.  But if you're driving over from Columbia I'd just commute everyday, unless you've got the budget to be overcharged for a room in the better part of town.

My gf and I are staying in Atlanta (extremely cheap for nice hotels like the hilton, sheraton, etc.) and will be making the 2.5+ hour drive early Monday morning to go to the practice round. Didn't even bother trying to find lodging in or near Augusta. Besides, my gf has never been to Atlanta, so figured for the other days we are down there, we can do some sightseeing. With that said, if I had tickets for more than one day, I definitely wouldn't be making that 5+ hour roundtrip on multiple days and would have tried to find lodging in or around Augusta.

    • It looks weird to me to have an iron with a lot offset. I get the feeling i can’t get a straight flight out of it. I guess people who hit the ball all over the clubface will benefit it. I prefer a cleaner look, thats why i love my mizuno jpx 921 forged irons, clean look with a little help
    • Huh? They don't really look at their yardage books when they're within about 50 yards of the greens now. Why would they start doing this? If you're saying they can't start looking at printed materials within a boundary layer, and they'll just hang out back in the fairway and look at the green slopes, you could say it's your ball position, not the player position. Otherwise the caddy could stand 50 yards away and yell up to the player or something. So I can't believe that's what you're suggesting. They are all saying it's about the skill, not the time. ? ShotLink requires a human to enter the result of the shot. Sometimes they don't see where it is, don't note when it was hit exactly, etc. And… Again, this assumes it's actually about pace of play. Thank you.
    • At some point its appropriate to consider position relative to the group ahead.  Efficient players might arrive at their ball and be required to wait, that shouldn't count against them.  I think you really need to have humans involved.  On the other hand, the policy itself is designed to minimize the potential for a player to be penalized.  Its a long process, they have to get out of position, get warned they're on the clock, then get a first bad time and get warned again, then get a second bad time and have a penalty stroke assessed. I think they could find ways to tighten up the policy, but I don't think the bulk of the players want to see things get tighter. I should add, this thread originally was based on the decision to ban green-reading books.  I understand that some of the motivation may be pace of play, so I understand the direction we're taking, but we probably shouldn't get too far down the slow play rabbit-hole in this thread, lest we veer completely .  Yes, I'm as guilty as anyone, so hopefully this is the last time I discuss slow play here.
    • Hey guys, I need your help.  I just bought an 8.5 degree M4 used off of 2nd swing.  It was given a 7 which means scuffs wear etc, but nothing that would hurt performance. Anyway, I hit it yesterday and the thing I noticed was that it was not loud at all.  Sounded kind of dead actually.  The ball seemed to fly nicely though.  Now admittedly I was comparing it to the sound my m3 makes (which folks have told me is ear piercing).  That said, I'm wondering from folks who have used an M4 and M3 if you think the M4 had a much more muted sound from the m3 or not.  Also, di you think the M4 was loud, or did your M4 have a more muted sound as well? The only othe thing I could think of is that maybe the lower loft on the M4 made for a more muted sound? Please let me know asap as I'm concerned I might have a dead driver and need to send it back to 2nd swing (still paid $220 for it). Thanks for your help guys!
    • I think a lot of offset also makes it harder to aim the face. It tended to make me align more left.
