    Amazing tourney.

    Tiger at 43 years, 4 knee surgeries, and 2 back surgeries.

    I loved every minute of it.

    Tremendous feat
    both physically and mentally

    Noticed the BBC quoted some "Me Too" or similar saying they shouldn't be praising him because of his past
    and then they capped it with 3 minutes of his confession from 10 years ago and dragged up his battle with drugs and alcohol and actually gave 5 seconds of him triumphant.

    Got a link to the above "story"?
    Everything I have read on the BBC is in praise of Tigers win.
    You can't expect a comeback like that not to mention his past misdemeanours like it never happened. All the more credit for his return to the form of the past.

    All the current stories are praising him, but you seem to be looking to find somebody trashing him.

    I had tickets to Sunday at the Masters for this year, but gave them up because my daughter's first prom was Saturday night . Should be able to go next year, but damn this would have been a fun one to be at.
    Get out there in the game, don't sit up in the bleachers. That is the philosophy of pimps and preachers.

    Wait, what??? Do you have a patron badge?

    I am entering the lottery now that I live in EST, but hear chances are not great every year.

    Tournament days on Stub Hub were going for $4K.

    My friend works in advertising sales for CBS and he's gotten pretty high up
    To say his Master's weeks are incredible is an absolute understatement
    Goes to pretty much every big party and access to all the tents


    Only one that matches that is my friend's husband owns a management company and he's a Waste Managment client
    The week of the Waste Managment Tourney in Phoenix his sales guys has like a 40k budget that he has to spend!

    During the build up to the Masters, on TV they were adverting a week at The Masters... flights, Hotels and passes to practice days for about 2,999. Was surprised they could sell tickets like this to the public.. even for practice days?
    Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.

    What they didn't tell you is that you have to serve hot dogs and beer to the real patrons...555

    If she was going with a boy, no question. Thankfully she went with a group of girls from her tennis team 55

    I know some guys from Augusta and they have them. They have a big farm house outside of town and they host, feed, provide drinks, etc. Pretty cool setup. I don't get to go every year, but have been a few times now. Looking forward to next year.

    You could be able to score practice round tickets. Those days are a little less serious and can be more fun. For me, I just enjoy walking the beautiful course, puffing on a cigar, and having a few beers and pimento cheese sandwiches.
