Curses!  Foiled again!  So if I start the 2014 Masters Thread, is that too much of a kickstarter?

Great website, especially during Masters' Week. I watch the early broadcast on the site every year (since it was started).  Lived in Augusta several times (1995-98, then again 2003-2006). Had the opportunity to see plenty of practice rounds and first rounds during those years. 1997: I was on the first tee with probably 300-400 other "patrons" saw TW hit his first tee shot as a pro at Augusta National (snap-hook),  shot a 40 on the "outgoing nine" - then recovered on the "incoming nine" - to eventually win by 12 strokes.

Lots of good memories of walking Augusta National over those years. Mostly on practice round days when I was one of the last to leave. Standing around the 16th hole while a few maintenance folks were watering greens as the sun was setting still sticks in my mind.  Couldn't believe someone didn't tell me it was time to leave and the exit gate was that-away.

I wish I could find the article I read several years ago about the 1975 Masters. It detailed the duel between Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Johnny Miller. There were insights from the players as well as the caddies and it was a fantastic read. I think it was in Golf Digest or Golf Magazine.

It's definitely my favorite one to watch.

Funny that a couple of top players, Donald included, traveled half way around the world to play in Malaysia. You'd think that kind of travel would disrupt their preparation for Augusta in a couple of weeks.

Those fat appearance fees will help them recover I'm sure.

True, but one would have to make the calculation: how much does a guaranteed $X00,000 diminish my chances of winning $Y million at the Masters. Does this mean that top players should pay for the services of a Bayesian statistician? :>)
