Discover Golf : Vol 13
The Masters dawns. And what a rise golf’s major event brings to the game’s enthusiasts worldwide. This golfing nut eagerly awaits another cracking event staged at the beautiful Augusta National Country Club. The 2019 edition gets underway during the early hours of Thursday April 11 with the honourary starters opening the event with ceremonial tee shots at the first hole. The tradition, which began in 1963 with Jock Hutchison and Fred McLeod, has featured the game’s greats including Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus. It’s one of many quirky traditions that endear The Masters into the hearts of fans. Other popular event rituals include players skipping tee shots during Tuesday’s practice round over the pond that guards the front of the 16th green. On Wednesday, the attention turns to The Masters Par-3 Contest. This is a ripping day at Augusta’s short course where family members of the game’s best players get to share the on-course experience. The event also features past champions of the game such as Tom Watson, Nicklaus and Player. One tradition however, remains in the mind of all competitors—the donning of the coveted ‘Green Jacket’. Come Sunday evening, the event’s winner will be forever written in golfing folklore. Here’s to discovering golf and seeing the world.
