We'll get to "who will win" and all that stuff later on. You know, when it's actually 2019.


What I'd like to talk about right now is who is going to the tournament?

I have a specific reason for asking this year, because I'd like to go, and I'd like to take my daughter. PGA members (I am one) get in free, but I'm pretty sure they can't bring a child with them despite the Masters allowing children to attend free with an adult. The rub is that the adult has to have a badge. So, if any TST members are going Monday through Thursday (probably only through Thursday, as I'll want to drive back on Friday), a member I know a bit, who could take @NatalieB in with them… let's talk. Send me a PM or something.

Otherwise, I may just have to leave her back at home, but I really think she'd enjoy it as well. And I'd enjoy it 3x as much getting to experience it with her the first time, together.

I'm still mad @iacas for starting this thread before I could....

I've stopped giving out the monthly awards (nobody seemed to care about them), and it's generally not too fair to give out the yearly ones for the person who starts the topic for the major in which Tiger plays the best… so… :-)

Even Member of the Month? I always thought that one was cool and fun to compete for. 

As for the Masters... I got my yearly rejection email. Seriously, whose ass do I have to kiss to get a badge for this stupid tournament? Sigh, maybe 2020....

Yeah, nobody really seemed to care. Sometimes the winner didn't even post in the topic where I announced the winners.

Yearly winners coming out soon here though, for 2018.

I never heard of this awards! maybe that´s why.
I also received my rejection mail from the Masters lotery last year.

I posted them every month for years. Two of the last three winners didn't even respond:

The yearly award winners are here:

Anyway, this isn't the topic for that. This is the topic for discussing the Masters Toonamint.

The 2019 Masters Tournament field stands at 80 players and is likely to stay well below 100 when play starts Thursday, April 11 at Augusta National Golf Club.

Last year’s field of 87 players was the smallest in 21 years. The Masters hasn’t broken 100 since 103 players teed up in 1966. The 2015 Masters field came closest with 98 qualifiers.

Hmmmm. Better chances for Tiger to win, right @colin007!

I think I'm gonna bite the bullet and pony up for a couple of tickets to the tournament. I have been to the practice rounds but never the tournament. I've got the wife about 75% convinced so....we'll see.:hmm:

Just realized that I will be traveling out to the Grand Canyon the Saturday/Sunday of the Masters.  Not great planning on our part but hard to move our kids' spring break.  Going to have to get my portable battery charger ready.  🙂

So, @NatalieB will have to wait another year or longer.

I booked a hotel room that I can cancel if I need to at the last minute, so I'm planning to go Monday through Thursday as of right now.

    • Probably. Although some teens chose to defy their parents and get immunized. Less likely, I'm guessing, with younger kids.
    • Probably will fall along the lines of what their parents chose to do. 
    • As someone who did this last summer and then had a tantalizing but disappointing season this year, remember that you need time to make the major mechanical adjustments sink in but then you also need time to learn how to hit shots with those new mechanics. Or at least I did (after doing all my mechanics work into a net). On your swing, it isn't nearly wide enough at the top. Among other things, that makes it way harder to shallow the club on the down swing. And it's really difficult to change from a steep to a shallow down swing regardless! At the top your right arm should be making at most an 80˚ angle. And many (most?) are closer to 90˚. The drill that got me over the hump was to take a kids swim floaty and put it just above my elbow such that at 90˚ I was solidly starting to squeeze it and it felt like a major squeeze if I tried to close my elbow any more than that. Then you'll really feel it in your swing when you get narrow and fold your elbow at the top. It'll feel like you're taking like 1/2 swings in order not to fold too much.
