HAHAHAHAHA!!!  Augusta loves their fans.

Craft beer? Augusta is really changing with the times :-D. Last time I was there (2015) the only beer options were Coors Original, Stella, and Miller Lite. It was the first Coors Original I had seen/consumed in at least 10 years....and I remembered why shortly after taking my first sip.

Every time someone posts this, someone should counter post with pricing during the Masters and normal pricing. Like:

 

Regular        

Masters Week

Hotel

$100/night

$200/night

Gas

$2.5/gal

$3/gal

Car Rental      

$100/day

$200/day

But hey, I'm saving chump change on food at the Masters.

Coffee (1.50), Biscuit (1.50) Water x 2 (4.00), Cue! (3.00) and Georgia Pecan Caramel Popcorn (2.00)

BTW - The spelled caramel wrong!

Or maybe it's popcorn from Carmel, California. :-P

So, @Golfingdad and I were wondering in the other thread, how careful do you think everyone is gonna be while marking their balls this week?!

I know this is meant in jest, but I do think it will be interesting to see how the issue is covered during the telecasts.  The Masters has historically been somewhat controlling over what is said on air during "their" tournament.  Will we see some camera close-ups of players marking and replacing their balls?  Will we hear discussions of the players' "cavalier attitude" (my words, not anyone else's) toward proper marking of their ball?  Will the Masters essentially muzzle the announcers?  I'm certain that if this was any other tournament, we'd have lots of discussions and video close-ups, but at the Masters I'm not so sure.

Interesting point Dave.  One thing that the Masters offers that other tournaments don't (as much) is online streaming of multiple groups and holes.  I know that they (The Masters high-lords) control every aspect of the broadcasts but you wonder if there will be a few different streams that might show a closeup or two...and you know that there are thousands of people watching those streams.  It only takes one.

That being said, I think everyone will be very aware and bit more careful about marking their ball.

If you don't have a Pimento Cheese sandwich, you can't claim to have been to The Masters. :-) 

Blech.

I'd take it all in candy, pop, and bananas.

No doubt in my mind, everyone will be super-careful.  I wonder if Phil's comments were intended to have exactly that effect.  Maybe he's seen this a handful of times, and he's doesn't want to be the bad guy, the guy who informed his FC that the FC needed to assess himself a penalty stroke. His comments will have the effect of forcing every player to be careful to mark and replace properly.  Anyway, I sincerely hope that there's no controversy at this year's Masters, and that its all decided by regular golf stuff.  

Now to the more important stuff, I wonder what kind of Bar-b-que they make around Augusta.  I'm not wild about the mustard-based sauce you get in lots of eastern SC, I might have to go with a club sandwich and a craft beer.

I'm not sure what BBQ it is.  Judging by the pictures I've seen I'd say it's not the eastern/vinegar or mustard-based one.  Not heavy on BBQ sauce though.

Just go with the pimento cheese sandwich (or two) and a beer (or two).  The sandwich is delicious.  @iacas is nuts.

I feel for those folks with Wednesday tickets now that the day has been rained out, but the weather looks good the rest of the week!

I think its full guaranteed. No extra bets. 

more accurately: does it look like this contest is going to fill, or will it come up 10-15% short?

in Guaranteed GPPs, overlay (i.e. contest doesn't come close to filling) is really beneficial to the player especially in single-entry contests.

Oh, ok. I thought you were talking about extra bets.  No, I don't think its going to get there. They just started doing golf. I feel like it might be as much as 25% short.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
