It'll be here soon...

Mrs Samthg & I scored practice round tix two years ago.

Our first steps on the course dropped us here at the 16th tee


Magnolia Lane, that night a hellish storm blew through an leveled one of those stuckers!


Looking back at 18 tee


11 is just awesome & tight!

It will happen on the 5th! It took me 5 years of "mail in's" to get the tix. Once I was there and talking to other "patrons", it seemed to take most of us the 5 years. One thing I didn't check into, but blew me away was once we were driving around the area of Augusta, I saw tons of vendors advertising tix.

You'll make it, and you won't believe it. The place is truly that amazing. It was fantastic being there on a practice round. We had lots of freedom to roam around and take tons of pics.

You lucky bastard!! I would do sick things to attend Augusta. That course is serioulsy a work of art, my uncle's been and says Pebble Beach doesn't hold a candle to Augusta.

I went in '06 for the weekend rounds, 27 holes Sunday for many from the weather delay Saturday.

Incredible place to experience.

Nah, anybody can go(to the practice rounds). You just have to go through the mail in process. Tix were only like $32.

My wife & kids took me to Pebble for the first round of the US Open in June '10, and 9 months latter we're at the Masters. This was quite incredible for me.

While Pebble is very nice, nothing(that i've seen)measures up to Augusta.

I have been fortunate to go to every tournament since 1986 until last year when I decided to go on a DS trip instead; it is a magical place. If anyone makes it down, pm me with any questions you may have. I would offer to show you around the club but we're having a baby that week this year! Great timing huh...
