Saw this on TM's fbook page and got a kick out of it. Charging $3-4/beer just goes to show the amount of revenue AN generates from corporate sponsors and it's members. I guess that's one benefit from spending $4k on a weekly badge - at least the beer is cheap, and they don't price gouge their patrons.

You see $3-$4 per beer as expensive?  I see that as about normal, especially for imports or micro brews.  I've been in a couple of bars where it was $6.  And don't go to a football or baseball game.  Slightly chilled, flat domestic beer for that price.

$4k is scalpers' price. Augusta National doesn't see any of that, I guess. Patrons pay what $100-200 for a badge?  Souvenir cup is worth the $4 - beer is an added plus.

I hope that someone supports me on this one. I know it’s a longshot, but wouldn’t you like to see Fred Couples win one more of these? To the best of my knowledge he’s got his personal life in order, the distended cowpers gland is under control, the back is feeling better and he’s at a good place with his game. I think if he can hold it together thru Saturday, you can’t count him out. Go Fred!

I'd rather see Rory win it.  I feel that Couples has seen his day - let the young guys take it from here.  I don't like to see the "one hit wonders" win it - and do nothing much afterwards (Mize, Immelman, for instance).  If any semi-older player did it, would pull for Els.

Yeah, it'd make a great story of Couples won (and Nantz will tell it 8 billion times on Sunday too - ugh) but I'd rather see the younger guys showing up as well.  Reed, Spieth, Rory, Fowler, Day, Tiger even ;)

Personally I would not have a problem with Couples...he has a history of starting off hot in recent yrs at the masters then trailing off on the weekend....So it definitely would not shock me to see him on the front page.  He still has plenty of game.

Let the young guys earn it.  If Fred plays well enough to beat them then they better take long look at themselves.

No drone zone enforcement for the AGNC area. Makes sense. Wonder how it's enforced. Armed USAF drones? Remote control jammers? http://golfweek.com/news/2015/mar/20/masters-2015-augusta-national-drones-banned/

Knowing Augusta National and their influence on anything in that part of Georgia......

but like in most outdoor sports events, drones can pose a serious terrorist threat - imagine the damage a terrorist could do with a drone to be witnessed by a huge natioanal TV audience.........

Jordan might be a solid player but the Augusta Masters is a whole different ball game. To win there, the player must have feel, flexibility, imagination and [b]a cool head[/b]. Time will tell. I must support The Tiger - a good showing here would be the defibrillation treatment needed for TV golf coverage.

I don't believe the bold part for a second, considering Bubba won twice and Tiger, four times. Spieth has the game to win. He only finished T2 in his first ever appearance at The Masters last year, after all.

Based on the stats from last year (http://www.pgatour.com/players/player.34046.jordan-spieth.html/statistics), his putting and scrambling will hold up well - it's the GIR that's a slight concern for me. He can definitely contend though, as last year.

Freddy just can't stay in contention on the weekend. He'll probably be there after 36 holes but the body starts wearing out on Saturday and he just doesn't have the same magic. Seems to be the pattern the last few years with him.

I would like to see Rory or Spieth win. In an age where Tiger and Phil are fading, the game needs these two to step up. Rory's already been stepping up, but he needs to keep winning majors to keep the interest level rising. And Spieth is America's best hope, I feel, to be that dominant player right now. And I think given their improving form the last few weeks, both have a solid chance in three weeks.

Yeah, I don't think Speith can win here, yet. He's too short and too crooked off the tee. But, if he can improve on that just a little bit, the sky is the limit for him.

Fowler's cool, young, colorful, got some kind of game, pulls for PUMA and, importantly, has hair.  Green would look good with the orange.
