    Making my 1st trip to The Masters in a couple of weeks. Best I could do is score tix for the wife and I for Mondays practice round. I followed their entry procedure and finally got the tix. This process took 6 years! I registered each year since '06 and got in this year. Just got the passes last week.

    Can't wait to get there. Now I see Deacon is pops-in-law. Cool. I'll be giving BC a shout out(respectfully of course).
    How cool would that little ADV sticker look on that golf bag?

    See ya in Augusta:clap:clap:clap

    The practice rounds are the only ones you can take a camera to so take advantage of that. Normal courtesies apply. Also be aware that when entering you can only carry an item that will fit in a 6x9x6 (appx) box and they do check. So no large purses etc. I got around it a bit by putting my camera in one box and my wife putting my 70-200 in the other. No chairs other than those logo'd with the Master's logo; same with any other branded product ie water, soda etc. Their food and drink prices are very fair given the captive crowd ie $1 for bottled water not $5 like an NBA game!
    It is also pretty much the only time you can get autographs. Have your wife approach; there are professional autograph collectors and if you are male and not a kid your response will be limited.
    Also, if you place a chair at a particular hole, it's your spot. You can leave and follow certain players and return. If someone is in your chairs kindly let them know and they will immediately vacate. Very honor bound.
    Have a great time and a whoop whoop for Ben.

    During a practice round at the '96 US Open, My G/F dressed in a nice low cut top. (and they were magnificent :lol3)

    Had a hat signed by some of the greats: Nicklaus, Watson, Lehman, Els, Strange, Pavin, Love, Mickelson, Singh, Faldo and more.
    Even Tiger's since he was still an amateur then.

    We hadn't caught up to the Nicklaus, Watson, Woods group.
    Using a hat to collect the sigs and saving the bill for the big names.
    She had went to get a some water and came back with a signature front and center on the bill. I was a little pissed.

    I hadn't even heard of Steven Jones before. Who is this guy?

    Turns out, he's the guy who won the 1996 US Open. :doh
