  1. A tribute to Caddies who worked at Augusta National. Tribute to Masters Caddies One of the most iconic traditions at The Masters is the caddies wearing white jumpsuits. This practice can be traced back to the very beginning of the tournament. Here’s a look at the history of Masters caddies donning the white jumpsuit and other interesting tidbits of information, including how numbers are assigned each year. While the outfits have remained uniform throughout the years and include the white jumpsuit and green cap, there are always two variations on each jumpsuit. The first and most obvious is the name of the golfer, which is attached to the back of the outfit in green lettering. On the front of each Masters caddie’s white jumpsuit is a number. The No. 1 is reserved each year for the caddie of the defending champion. This year, Tiger Woods’ caddie Joe LaCava will don that number. While it would make sense if the remainder of the caddies’ numbers were based on the previous year’s finish or possibly their world ranking, it’s actually much simpler. The numbers are assigned based on the order in which the players check into registration for the week.
  2. Post your favorite individual tweets in this topic. I'm not normally a CPG guy, but this thread is great.
  3. 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.
  4. Discuss Seven Days in Augusta by Mark Cannizzaro here.
  5. How Ken Green got reprimanded for starting two Masters traditions Sneaking friends into Augusta National? A tradition of... Pretty interesting stuff there.
  6. 2020 Masters Tournament Tickets The Official Site of the Masters Golf Tournament 2018. This major golf tournament is played annually at the Augusta National Golf Club. Now accepting applications. https://tickets.masters.com/app Get in line so you, too, can be rejected again.
  7. So this past year I went to the Masters for the first time. It was honestly one of the things pushing me to finish my work and to become a Class A PGA member. Like many, I have some observations. Unlike many, I don't know that you'll hear these observations from too many people. These are in no particular order at all. The Elevation Changes You hear it from almost everyone. They set foot on the grounds and can't believe how much elevation change is down the tenth hole, or even down the second and up the eighth. Me? I was not surprised at all. The 10th looked and felt about exactly as I thought it would. Ditto every other hole on the course. The only elevation change that surprised me was the front of the fifth green, and that's mostly because you rarely see someone short there, and you really only see that hole covered at all on Saturday and Sunday, briefly, when the leaders play it. And they aren't playing from short of that green, usually. At any rate, whether it's the many times I've been to, say, Oakmont or Muirfield Village, I think I simply understood how "TV flattens things" and so I guess I pictured what ended up being reality. So, the elevation changes didn't surprise me at all: they were what I thought they'd be. The Smell The smell? Yeah, the smell. Augusta National mixes in some fertilizer, most green (or reddish brown, for areas of pine straw) with some pellets of stuff to keep everything looking great. These pellets seem to absorb water and may contain seed or something, too, but all I know is that it smells like used kitty litter. It's really rather gross. The Course Conditions They're not the best I've ever seen. Sure, you'll have a hard time finding weeds and things, but the fairways are much more spotty than I thought they'd be. Maybe this spring was not the best, but the conditions at The Memorial, the conditions at the Players, the conditions at several other PGA Tour stops were better this year than they were at Augusta National this year. I suspect players won't want to talk about it because nobody says anything bad about Augusta National, but yeah… the conditions were not up to the level I'd expected to see. (The greens were fine.) The SubAir If you want to live out a Marilyn Monroe moment, Augusta National will provide plenty of opportunities, as the vents for the SubAir system are blowing moderately warm air almost constantly when the conditions are even a little wet. I saw people's hats being blown off, dresses being thrown up around people's necks, pairings sheets ripped from people's hands, and children playing over the constantly fast-blowing air from vents stationed around the course. The vents are loud, and exist throughout the course. The steady hum you hear? It's not the murmuring of the crowd. It's the SubAir system. The Fauna A player told a fellow instructor friend of mine that he'd give him $20 for every bird he spotted and $100 for every squirrel. Though we eventually saw about five birds on the one day we were looking, we saw no squirrels or chipmunks. We walked with this player's father for a number of holes, too, and this father is a member at neighboring Augusta Country Club. I asked him "Do you have squirrels and chipmunks there?" He said "Yes, tons, and we even have some deer and other animals." I replied "Then why aren't there any squirrels here?" After all, I added, the trees literally co-mingle. There's not a wide stream separating the two properties, or even a fence or something else. He said "They aren't members." I chuckled at the joke but he couldn't cite any reason he knew why ANGC was completely devoid of most fauna. FWIW, this also includes bees, mosquitoes, and other insects. You'll find a few ants, and a few bees, and some dragonfly (dragonflies?), but even near the magnolias and the flowers, the insect count is much, much lower than you'd suspect it should be. The bird noises are absolutely piped in, by the way. We found some speakers, and there are plenty of times you can hear a bird noise coming from a very specific spot, and yet… there's no bird there at all. The Food Prices For breakfast, the chicken or sausage biscuits were $1.50 or so. Pop (soda?) is about $1.50. Beer is $4 (domestic) or $5 (imported), I think, and all the drinks come in collectible cups, with the imported beers coming in green and the rest of the beverages (they had iced tea and "sports drink" too) coming in the frosted clear cups). It was not unusual to see people walking around with 20+ cups in a stack. Some even fished them out of waste bins. I took a few home each day (though only got one green one, as I'm not a big beer drinker - it sitting in an empty grandstand). The Employees By "employees" I mean anyone and everyone associated with the tournament: merchandise staff, the security people, the marshals, etc. They say that Disney World is the happiest place on earth, but the nicest people on earth might just be any employee during the Masters. They're constantly asking you whether you're having a great day, and taking the steps to make sure you have a great day. They're the nicest people I've ever encountered in this large a number. It's ridiculous. Even people misbehaving or doing things badly would be treated nicely - firmly, but incredibly nicely. "Sir, please, you cannot do that, please get down from that tree. Thank you sir. It's for your own protection and well-being. I really hope you enjoy the rest of your day at The Masters." The Spectators (Patrons) I cannot believe how many dumb comments I heard from the "patrons" throughout the week. I sat by the second green on Thursday (Tiger made birdie), and after four hours of watching most golfers make birdie or par (and an occasional but rare bogey), the woman seated beside me on the rope line behind the green asked "is this a par 3 or a par 4?" She'd been coming to the Masters for over 15 years. People routinely asked dumb questions: "What hole is this?" standing on the tee box pointing to #12 green. Or beneath the big "10" on a pole at the tenth tee. I feel like, if you're between the ages of 25 and 50, and you have Masters tickets, you should have to pass a simple quiz consisting of 5-10 very basic questions before you're admitted on to the property. If you fail, your tickets are given to someone waiting who gets a perfect score. Questions would include: What color jacket does the winner get? What was the last name of the famous amateur golfer who founded Augusta National? The 16th hole is a par ___? A golf ball is what shape (choose one): round, rectangular, triangular. For far too many it was clear that their yearly trip to the Masters was entirely about the social scene or being able to say you were there or something. The Cell Phone Policy On one hand, it's nice. On the other, it's a complete load of crap even if you're WORKING at the event as an instructor or media personality. You cannot coordinate anything, including meeting up with players and/or fellow instructors (or fellow reporters). You can take a camera on the course on M-W, but your cell phone must be checked at the gate or, better yet, left in your car. It's nice that people's hands are free - they actually clap instead of yelling stupid things - and that they mostly pay attention. Which is great. But for professionals… meh. Next year: Apple Watch with cellular. Not for calls (mine hasn't made a noise in years)… but just for texting friends/students about meeting up. The Golf Watching Honestly, it kinda sucks. Yes, you can hear the roars from all over the place, but you honestly have very little idea how anyone really stands. On Thursday, from behind the #2 green, I could see one leaderboard: the one on the third hole. It wasn't always updated promptly, and they were reluctant to take players off once they'd made it on because they'd have to take down 12-15 numbers plus the name. I had no idea how Tiger stood until I caught him again making a par on 15 (he'd birdied 14, IIRC, just before). There are no TVs and nothing electronic, and no earpiece radios, nothing… so you really have no idea how the tournament stands if you're out on the course. They could have TVs in the concession areas, I'd think, but no: you just have to guess, and watch the golf in front of you. Meh. The Merchandise Tent It's big. The line moves relatively quickly. It's very, very easy to over-spend. But you'll be happy about it. What I want to note though is how good the shipping and bag storage areas are. If you choose for them to store your bag for the day, you get some tickets. They scan your tickets, and direct you to a spot, like "Please sir go to station four" and, despite station four being only eight steps away… your checked bags with all of your merchandise purchases are there waiting for you when you get to the station. I have no idea how they do this, as your tickets were scanned only ten seconds prior. I'd love to know the inner workings here - it is easily one of the most mind-blowingly efficient systems I have ever seen. The Practice Range I'll tell you what: some of the best watching is in the grandstands behind the range. You'll see players and coaches hanging out, working on stuff. You'll see some of the old guys breaking out their clubs for what feels like the first time in six months (hola, Fuzzy!), doing everything they can not to hit the first few balls. You'll see Alex Noren's bizarre ass practice routine where he aims 40° left, and hits the ball 20° right. The putting green (though there are no grandstands) is equally entertaining. Less so are the pitching/chipping areas to the far left. But still, as you enter or leave, you'll see some guys out there getting in some work. That's It I think that's it. I'll add to the above list as needed. BTW, I took photos on Monday and Tuesday, mostly, but I haven't even pulled them off the memory card. I don't know, I won't say I was underwhelmed, but I specifically tried to avoid getting overhyped about it so as not to be let down, and everything just… lived up to what I expected, which wasn't a ton. It just met expectations - it was what I thought it would be. Except how nice everyone was - that was a pretty nifty surprise, and the merchandise checked bag efficiency.
  8. I thought I would share some info for would-be patrons on the forum who want to attend The Masters tournament days. I go every year and there's little or no information online about where to get badges (tickets) , prices etc. I never post on forums so if this text comes out messy and hard to read, apologies! So you want to achieve your bucket list, here's some tips how to do it. There are essentially two ways to get to see The Masters, the expensive way and the REALLY expensive way. So you can buy in advance online at various ticket sites and travel companies. But how about if you don't want to pay $2k plus fees for one days entry?! Scalpers. On Washington Road within permitted resale areas (not really close to Augusta National) you'll see ticket signs everywhere buying and selling tickets. I will call them badges from now on since that is what they are, tickets are for normal events- this is not a normal event, its The Masters - if you are a patron you must have a badge :0) So how much is it? Ok so if you want the big money option and you want to buy before the day of play or in the early morning on the day, you are looking at $1500-$2000 for the majority of days per badge. Prices may be slightly more or less but usually somewhere around there, and Sunday is the cheapest day as many locals like to watch the final day on TV so sell their badges. You may get in for much less on the Sunday if the big names are not likely to win or someone is way out in front. If Tiger is up there this year do not expect to get a badge for under £2k for the final days play. If you don't want to pay the big bucks, wait until 12pm when the prices come down. This is for several reasons but they will usually come down in the early afternoon and if you are prepared to wait until 2pm or 3pm you may get in for $400-800 depending on the tee times and who played early. If you want to walk the course and just 'get in' then consider going on the practice days as you will get in for way less. Do not buy badges from anyone who approaches you, at Augusta you need to hunt for badges, even the scalpers are sometimes out of them. Go to brokers who have a tent set up roadside as they are usually there every year. Do not expect to bargain with these guys, if you stand around trying to get a deal someone may walk up and offer more. If you have badges to sell, don't even think of doing it near the gates, they have police and security all around and in street clothes. This is handy advice....if you wait outside the either gate of the course remember there are two types of tournament day badge, daily and weekly. Daily are card, weekly are plastic. If you are desperate and decide to wait outside looking for a freebie you have no chance of getting a plastic badge so ask people who you see wearing a paper one. There is a small chance late in the day that someone who has a daily badge may give you one as they leave but remember any 'handing off' of badges near the course is illegal so be discreet. For practice days there are way more paper badges than tournament days so you are more likely to get a gift from Mon-Wed. Thursday and Friday are the most popular days to attend, they are the most expensive scalped badges generally speaking. Don't expect to rock up to Augusta and get a badge from a scalper for $200 from Thur-Sun it isn't happening. Not unless you buy after 5pm or later and have lots of luck. Remember you need to walk from the scalper on Washington Rd to the closest gate, thru security and past all of the people to the first hole, it will take a minimum 20 mins maybe longer. If you have a limited budget - say $500 - don't even bother going to the brokers until 2pm at the earliest you are wasting your time. Remember that they now limit how many times you can enter the course to three times. It is possible you may buy a badge which has been used three times already to enter making it not valid for entry. In other words, the badge you buy looks real because it is but it isn't valid so you can't enter. There is no way for you to check this so if you are going in late don't overpay for your badge as there is a slight chance you won't get in. On the Sunday, the action doesn't hot up until after 2pm so why pay the big bucks and go in early? Wait until mid afternoon and the prices should be way lower. Badge prices for the Sunday are the most volatile as they could be $500 or $5000. Try not to fly from the other side of the world and leave only the Sunday when you can attend, you may get priced out, if anything go on Thursday or Friday as prices are more stable. Tips for if you get in: Don't drink too much beer, Augusta is heaven on Earth, you want to remember it forever. Also sometimes its 20 mins to pee, that's 20 mins of time you are not watching the best sporting event in the world Don't take your phone on tournament days, leave it in the little buildings near the gates, its free and easy Don't expect to have breakfast there they sell out way before the official end time so get there early Make sure you have a sandwich they are amazing. Pimento overrated, try the ham and cheese on wheat with some mini moon pies for a treat. The drinks are all very cold which is great when it's hot Pick up a daily schedule with the tee times and a map of course on the back after security from the little boxes next to the paths as you walk into the course Take sunscreen, sunglasses, a cap, and lots of cash for the store. If you don't go in the store you will regret it! The best store is the one near the first fairway Wear comfortable walking shoes. It's very hilly there, much more so than you think watching on TV Dress smart. This is The Masters Adhere to the rules of Augusta National. Check them out before you go. Don't run or expect to put out lots of chairs on 18 on the Sunday, ain't happening Parking is free if you get there early. If you get there and its full don't sweat lots of local businesses have $20 parking just look out for it I hope this has been informative for anyone who wants to attend, good luck getting your badges!
  9. Here is the video: Here are some photos from the video: I thought watching live (well, watching the first time, recorded on my DVR later in the evening) that he had improved his lie. You can certainly see more of the ball after he soles his club than before. But I'm leaning toward "inconclusive." This type of activity reportedly occurs frequently on the PGA Tour and people look the other way all the time.
  10. With the masters behind us () I thought I would throw this out there to keep us talking about the “hallowed” pines of Augusta National. I have been thinking about this all week and thought I would see what the TST opinion is: Obviously, with all it’s history Augusta is a golfers dream come true. But what if the course was designed less than 20 years ago? What if it looked exactly like it does today, but had no history or major championship tied to it? Would it be a bucket list golf course? In other words, if the course had none of the history and prestige it has today would the design itself be worthy being one of the best golf courses in the world?
  11. Pretty straightforward here: What's your favorite hole at Augusta National? What's your least favorite hole at ANGC? Why? Take it however you want to take it - favorite hole if you were to play it, or favorite hole to watch in the Masters… favorite architecture or strategy… whatever you want.
  12. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/tiger-confidential-what-pros-really-say-about-tigers-chances-at-the-masters What fascinated me about that article is the breadth and scope of the opinions, the sheer variety. Others correctly point out, for example, that even after a layoff in 2010, he came out and finished T4. Then two quotes later someone is saying he has no chance.
  13. The Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSZxaHGo1OEs06vQumIooug The archive has been opened on the Masters Final Round broadcasts from 1968 to 2017. I'll say that again in case you skimmed over it… The archive has been opened on the Masters Final Round broadcasts from 1968 to 2017. Tiger's wins in reverse: So much for sleeping tonight. Here's another way to view the videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/masters/videos

  15. Hello - I was lucky enough to get tickets for the Masters practice round on Monday, April 2, 2018. Since I'll already be in town, I'd like to try to attend Tuesday, April 3 as well, and am hoping to trade either one or two of my Monday tickets for an equal number for Tuesday. Is anyone out there interested and able to make this happen? Thank you!

  17. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/jul/13/rory-mcilroy-scottish-open-golf-poulter-fowler Sky faces golf embarrassment after losing rights to next month’s US PGA Then… http://www.telegraph.co.uk/golf/2017/07/14/opening-two-days-masters-danger-lost-uk-television-no-deal-place/ Exclusive: Opening two days of The Masters in danger of being lost to UK television with no deal in place for live coverage Ooof. I wonder how our compatriots across the pond are feeling about this…?
  18. Some questions to kick off the run-up to and playing of the 2017 Masters Toonamint at Augusta National: Is Jordan Spieth the favorite to win after his collapse last year? Is it the best story in golf? If not Jordan, how about Dustin Johnson? Will Tiger Woods make the cut? Will he play? Will he surprise everyone (likely including himself at this point) and finish in the top ten? If he skips this tournament, will this be the last time anyone really cares? Last year's winner Danny Willett… does he contend again, or will his drop in play (evident at the Ryder Cup) continue? Ask any other questions you may have, and answer them, too.
  19. The 2018 Masters Tickets lottery is now open! I submitted (again) my application just moments ago (4x3, 2x4). https://tickets.masters.com
  20. I thought 2016 was the year I finally got to get inside the gates, but unfortunately it didn't work out. Are there any Sand Trappers who have had the opportunity to go to The Masters? Was it everything you hoped it would be/everything that you had heard, or did you think it was overly hyped-up?
  21. In 1958, Arnold Palmer hit his ball over the 12th green in the final round at Augusta National in the Masters. His ball was half embedded, and he asked the walking official for a ruling as he felt he should get a free drop. The free drop was denied. He played out the hole, making a 5, and then, with a defiant attitude, dropped his ball near where it had been embedded and played out the hole again, making a 3 this time. The 3 was upheld, and Arnold Palmer won his first major and first Masters. Ken Venturi was pissed about it. Not because he disagreed that Arnie wasn't entitled to free relief. He was. But because Arnie played a shot with his ball (four, actually) before invoking 3-3: his right to play a second ball.* * It was 11-5 in 1958, I believe: http://www.ruleshistory.com/rules1956.html#11 . Rule 3-3 - http://www.usga.org/rules/rules-and-decisions.html#!rule-03,3-3 a. Procedure for Competitor In stroke play only, if a competitor is doubtful of his rights or the correct procedure during the play of a hole, he may, without penalty, complete the hole with two balls. To proceed under this Rule, he must decide to play two balls after the doubtful situation has arisen and before taking further action (e.g., making a stroke at the original ball). The competitor should announce to his marker or a fellow-competitor: that he intends to play two balls; and which ball he wishes to count if the Rules permit the procedure used for that ball. Before returning his score card, the competitor must report the facts of the situation to the Committee. If he fails to do so, he is disqualified. If the competitor has taken further action before deciding to play two balls, he has not proceeded under Rule 3-3 and the score with the original ball counts. The competitor incurs no penalty for playing the second ball. The red part is important. You don't get to decide, after the fact, that you want to try that all again because maybe the committee will rule in your favor about something that happened four shots ago. Just an FYI, should you ever need to invoke 3-3.
  22. Let me first say that I hope Arnie, Jack and Gary Player are with us for a long time and can continue their tradition at The Masters and at other tournaments. Given some of the concern for Arnie's health this year it made me wonder who would be the next Big 3 to carry on the legacy. I thought about doing it as a poll but there are too many options to choose from and some of the obvious choices might not be willing or deemed worthy to be considered. My guess is; Watson, Phil, Tiger - in the order that they would be asked should one of the current Big 3 not be able to attend the event.
  23. For the discussion of the 2016 Masters, to be played April 7-10 at some muni course named Augusta National GC. Who will win? Who will be the surprise story? Will Jordan Spieth get out of his funk?
  24. Predict the Winner of the 2016 Masters with The Sand Trap and PING! Who do you think will WIN the Masters in 2016 and what SCORE will they shoot? PLEASE READ the rules thoroughly. Each year people are disqualified for simple mistakes. To enter, post your answer right here in this thread along with the text "PING is going to help me be fast and forgiving with the new G Driver and Crossover!" Your answer must also include a 2nd and 3rd choice. You are NOT predicting who will finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd; you are picking three players to win and the score(s) they will shoot. The first choice carries tremendous weight (see the rules below for more), while the second and third choices exist simply in case we don't have a winner selected by anyone's first selection. The first-place winner will win a custom PING G Driver! The second-place winner will win a custom PING G Crossover! The Rules: - All qualifying entries must be received no later than April 6, 2016 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City). - Winners will be notified within 24 hours of the completion of The 2016 Masters and will have 48 hours to claim their prize. - You must be a registered member of The Sand Trap in good standing. - You must be a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia and aged eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry. - Your answer must include the visible and bold text "PING is going to help me be fast and forgiving with the new G Driver and Crossover!", the FULL NAME (first and last, for the purposes of proper and unique identification) and the score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) of the player you are predicting to win the 2016 Masters, as well as your 2nd and 3rd choices (same rules apply - full name, score in relation to par). - The Winner will be selected as the first person in the contest to correctly pick both the winner and the score. The runner up will be the second person to correctly pick the winner and score or be the first person to pick closest to the winner/score. - One entry per person and per household. Any additional entries or modifications invalidate all entries. - If we suspect fraud of any kind - suspicious multiple entries, for example - we reserve the right to award the prize to the next valid entry in the order established above. Details regarding the red, underlined rule: - It's very simple guys. The winner is the first person (who satisfies the other rules) to choose the correct winner and score with their first choice. If nobody picks the correct score, the winner is the first person to have the closest score for the correct winner. If nobody chooses the correct winner with their first choice, we repeat the process for everyone's second choice, and then the third. - In other words, if someone chooses Joe Smith for their first choice - at any score - and you choose him for your second choice, you've wasted your choice. Additionally, if someone chooses Joe Smith at -2 for their first choice, it makes no sense to choose Joe Smith at -2 for any of your choices if you're posting after that entry (unless the person is DQed or ineligible, of course). - Think of your picks like draft picks. Your second and third choices should be someone you don't think will be chosen in the first "round." The Prizes: First: Custom PING G Driver Winner gets to choose stock shaft, flex, loft. Second: Custom PING G Crossover Winner gets to choose stock shaft, flex, loft. Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize after being notified.. Again, please read the details about how to go about entering the contest and picking players. Don't pick top ten players for your 2nd and 3rd picks. Example for this contest would look like this PING is going to help me be fast and forgiving with the new G Driver and Crossover! 1) Jordan Spieth -36 2) Bill Haas -36 3) Vijay Singh -36
