Traffic was heavier than usual this morning, which can mean only one thing: the Masters is here. I drove by the main entrance to the Augusta National and parking lots along Washington Road were seeing pretty impressive activity. I’m so glad I don’t have to be anywhere near that area this week… it’s going to be a madhouse trying to get in and out of the National Hills area.
Even if you’re not a golf fan, it’s worth it to at least see the course once in your life. (I went in 2001.) Of course, seeing as tickets are going for anywhere from $2500 on up… it’s probably not feasible for most people. I was lucky enough to marry into a family that’s had tickets since the 60’s – when the club had to basically beg people to come to the tournament.
