Once was enough for me.....I don't know how they stop the balls on the greens....very humbling. Eat well before you go unless you really like pimento cheese sandwiches.

I like to sit on the approach to 15 and watch guys making a million bucks a year hit the ball in the water. I turn to my friends and say "I can do that". It is very rewarding.

Laird,

I enjoy saying that on the couch on Sunday. Boy I'd love to say that yards away from the approach. Enjoy the tournament!

Been a bunch of years but, after the thrill of the first time, it's better to watch it on TV. You get to see a lot more. It used to be at Augusta you could carry as many folding seats as you could carry into the event and place them at various viewing points. It was the honor system that nobody would occupy your vacant seat. If you got there early enough, you could have a number of seats "at the ropes" and bounce around to your strategically place seats. That's no longer as they have imposed a one-seat-per-person-rule that is actually more fair to allow everyone a chance to get up close.

I haven't been in years but still get tickets that I loan to a friend that's addicted to the crowds, the traffic and high prices for EVERYTHING....... Someday maybe I'll get back into it.......

speaking of traffic, I was coming into town from Charleston yesterday and my sister wanted me to swing by and pick something up from her at the front gate. I got off at the Washington rd exit and said heck no. It was backed up for about 3-5 miles...and noone was moving

there's nothing like Masters week. Growing up, it was always such a big deal in our home. Dad would get all excited, my mom would drool over Freddie Couples, we'd all sit around and watch all weekend. I've never been, but my dad finally was able to attend last year and when he called me from the gates, he sounded like a giddy school child. A week or two later, he was diagnosed with a very rare cancer and he lost his life this past September. So, while this Masters weekend will be the usual for me (on the couch, drinkin' a beer), it is also a sad one. But I know Dad is still watching...

Went down yesterday. I think it was the largest crowd I have ever seen!
The wind was cold, and giving the pros a fit. Had a great time, that course just takes my breath away every time I see it.
