  2. 2018 Masters Tickets Lottery

    The 2018 Masters Tickets lottery is now open! I submitted (again) my application just moments ago (4x3, 2x4). https://tickets.masters.com
  3. Who Has Attended The Masters?

    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?
  4. Good day all. First time forum poster here. I hope that this question meets the eyes of someone who can help. I've been offered a miracle out of nowhere: 2 tickets for The Masters. These are not my passes or badges (whatever they're called). They came from a close friend, in other words from what I've read on other site - I'm not the "accredited patron" I have read about. These were gifted to me. I wanted to go with my wife and take our two kids (9 & 12). Before I price out flights and book hotel, I'd really like to get the scoop on this. Should it be just my son and I or can the family go (2 adults and 2 kids)? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks!
  5. I think winning 4 majors is almost impossible in 1 year, tennis it can be done but golf there is too much parity. If we add the Players championship to another Major this will credit a lot more deserving golfers with more major.s
  6. 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.
  7. Who Will Be The Next Big 3

    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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. I am heading to the Masters this Saturday, for first time, Can I wear Apple Watch? Or will security deny me? Thanks Jimmy B
  11. http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/mar/28/rory-mcilroy-par-three-competition-masters-augusta I can see that. And though I watched the coverage the first year, I've not watched it since. It's boring, there's too much fawning over guys who play worse golf than I do at this point in their lives, and I get tired real quick of watching the kids running around. I can see how it could be a huge pain in the butt to a current competitor, and simultaneously really enjoyed by past-their-prime guys. What do you think?
  12. Masters Par 3 Contest Tickets

    I have two tickets to the 2016 Masters Par 3 contest and I'm trying to decide whether to go or sell them on StubHub. I live in California and I don't have tickets for the tournament days. Has anyone ever attended the Par 3? Is it worth a cross-country trip just to attend the Par 3? Also wondering if you're able to walk the rest of Augusta or do they limit you just to the Par 3 course. Does the same restrictions on cell phones and cameras apply for the Par 3?
