any other golfers out there? I am psyched for the Masters this weekend. Always one of my favorite Sundays of the year other than football season. Kicking back around 3 o,clock and watching the conclusion of the tournament. Must be one of the most beautiful places in the world.

A trip to Georgia to see the Big House and Augusta. Two very different places but both on my bucket list.

Augusta is a cool, old city, being the second oldest settlement next to Savannah. Founded in 1734 by Gen. James Oglethorpe, who also settled Savannah. Lots of history to explore....

Having said that, Masters Week is a big boost to our local economy, but the locals usually leave town for the week as this place gets saturated with golf fans. Local school systems always schedule spring break with Masters Week. Restaurants and bars/clubs near Augusta National Golf Club are usually packed. I stay close to home if I'm not on vacation.

Macon....you know the deal on Macon. It's the musical epicenter of Georgia and southern music.

Sorry but the only thing worse than playing Golf is watching it on TV. God bless you if that's your thing though.

I lived near where they hold the Buick Open and people would rent out their houses for the week and make 3-5 mortgage payments with what they charged.

my annual spring ritual--watch the masters on tv & try to do my taxes. every year I say I won't let it come to this & every year I'm wrong. by the way, golf is golf but the masters is unique, as they say an "event like no other."

Likewise here in Augusta, and surrounding area. The money corporations spend on hospitality Masters week is mind boggling.

There is a good show on The Masters that they have been showing on PBS recently. Luckily, General Sherman gave you guys a break back in the day. Unfortunately they amazingly didn't bring up the "white's only" aspect of the club that existed for decades where it all takes place, but the Bobby Jones stuff and the early sand greens info was great. Glad they keep the corporate crap away from the tournament itself and keep the grounds as beautiful as they do.

I enjoy watching the Master, the British Open the US Open...other than those three I don't usually watch too much golf anymore.

I wish they'd show more of the whole course. 11 - 16 are some of the greatest holes in golf but I'd like to see some of the other opening holes. I also like the fact that the Masters tell CBS how much commerical time they can run per hour, I think it's 4 minutes.....

I love watching the Masters.

Most years the first sirloins on the grill get done that Sunday.

If the snow holds off we may keep that tradition alive this year.

Yeah, Phil's great.

Anybody remember hearing the story of him at the Krispy Kreme drive thru with one of his kids after he won The Masters one year? He was wearing the green jacket and all. The drive thru worker asked if she could snap a photo and he obliged. Gotta love that...

I was there yesterday for the Par 3 tournament. Something cool about the way they invite all living former major championship winners as "non competing invitees". Got to see 89 year old Jack Fleck, who won the US Open in 1955, hit some darn good shots on the par three course.

Enjoy this video from last week's news about a man who played in the VERY FIRST Master's Golf Tournament in 1934. Ladies and gentlemen, 100 year old Mr. Errie Ball.

After about a 18 year hiatus I was coaxed by some coworkers to start golfing again. (Not because I'm a swell nice guy, but they needed one more guy for the league).

Anyway that was 1998 and i have been golfing again ever since. I don't know if it's maturity or I lowered the bar but this time around I really do enjoy it. Gone are the days that I would buy an extra 6 dollar 5 iron at a garage sale to carry in my bag so I could wrap it around a tree when I got pissed off.

I love everything about The Masters. Never miss it. Augusta National is the finest, most beautiful course in the world IMO. The back nine on Sunday is probably the greatest test of nerves that a professional athlete has to endure in any sport. Knowing what it means and what it takes to win that tournament - how it changes a golfers life forever to be announced as a Masters Champion from that day forward...

the masters is a great start of the spring season..As a golfer since i was a kid I do enjoy watching the golf tourney on tv cause you can appreciate what they do and the skill involved. If u play you can watch.. I appreciate those that cant believe people actually watch golf.. but what i say to that is auto racing... i can stick my head outside my window and watch cars pass by. but to each there own......Got a chance to play today with my almost 81 yr old Dad That beats watching any day!! ps shot an 83............

so far Rory McElroy is tearing it up. Wish Phil could have put at least -5 on the board thru 2 rounds. Still a long way to go. These guys pound the ball so far, I cannot even fathom it. On my best day 240 is most I can do.

What a spectacular course-even on TV although HD makes it amazing. I heard its also in 3D but i dont own a 3D set.
