A tradition unlike any other

Filed under: Augusta — sashyjane @ 1:00 pm

It’s Master’s Week in Augusta! I don’t really care much for golf but I enjoy the Master’s a great deal.  Why is that, you ask? Because the pimento cheese, cold beer, handsome men, gorgeous scenery and people watching are unrivaled.

Sarah and I went yesterday to the practice round and caught the Par 3 Contest.  What fun! Many of the players had their children serve as their caddies and a few even let them putt. I get the pleasure of joining Lenka Friday afternoon for the actual Tournament as well.

In the past (and I’m sure it’ll be the case this year too) scads of people have followed Tiger Woods around the course and have just been obsessed with him.  I have never been one of those people. Tiger rubbed me the wrong way from the first time we saw him at the National. He’s arrogant, rude and I don’t have any interest in following him around. I much prefer the kind family men who are friendly with the fans and humble and gracious. Men like Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Bernhard Langer. I’m really pulling for Ernie to win this year.

Isn’t Phil just precious? Image from here.

While we were at the National yesterday, Sarah and I did a little bit of preliminary golfer surveillance. I’ve selected a few of the good looking ones to investigate further.
