Depending on which side of “The Pond” you’re on, arguably the biggest event in the realm of golf is upon us once again.
Monday begins the practice rounds at Augusta National, which hosts The Masters tournament.
With the possible exception of St. Andrews, Augusta is the most storied course in golf. Augusta has hosted some of the most exciting (I’m using “exciting” in relative terms, of course) golf that has ever been witnessed.
As a player I met a few years ago told me, “the grass is like carpet” at Augusta. There is little about the place that isn’t eye-catching, even for the non-golfer.
The Masters is about the only tournament of the year I pay a whole lot of attention to. I like golf. I play a game that can, on rare occasion, be mistaken for golf. I glance at the leaderboards of big events when I get a chance.
I can’t say, however, that I find watching golf on TV particularly entertaining, a large part of the reason I don’t follow it that closely. Don’t get me wrong, it’s cool to watch people that actually know what they’re doing sticking an approach within three feet of the pin, something I do quite often, if you count my 4-foot putts as approaches.
