Congratulations on the youngin'.

That offer is sure tough to pass up.

I'll bring my clubs, and a few dozen extra balls.

The actual spot is between the pines on the right of the pic...

I'm a Phil fan. When he was talking with Bones about that shot, I blurted out: "Oh no, he's going for it."



I can't think of a place, anyplace that I'd rather see in person than Augusta. Good on ya.

My father used to talk about sneaking on the course when the Masters was occurring. That was in the mid-50's and he was stationed in Augusta.

My cousin, a golf course designer/builder of minor fame & fortune, noted that they used to make the run from Columbia SC to Augusta - they'd sneak out of high school for the day to watch the practice rounds. He used to hustle guys when he was in high school also for "spending money". He and his dad, who worked at a highway construction firm, built a driving range together to channel his energy and give him some experience growing up. That was in the early 70's.

That's the kind of tradition I like!

Good on them for the lowest prices I've ever seen!

Yeah, no shit. I went to the US Open up at Oakmont PA 15 or so years ago, and the pricks were charging $5.00 for a bottle of water even then. Luckily, it was only 100 out that day.

Only caught the playoff, fun stuff.

Have to say, Carbrera strikes me as a class act. I don't follow golf much, but I'll cheer for him in the future.

Congratulations Champion Scott. Well played.
