I do not know if I have the words to properly recap what happened in Augusta last week. The day started as I landed in Atlanta at 8 AM on Friday. I was eager to get the tournament and excited to see that Tiger had a late tee time that I wouldn’t miss.
I have been fortunate to attend the Masters four of the past five years, and it has never disappointed. Every year has been and will continue to be a special and amazing experience, but this past year will be hard to top!
History in the making
I was able to see pivotal moments transpire on holes 7,13 and 18 on Sunday. Tiger had a tap-in birdie on 7 while Molinari made a bogey which got the excitement going. I was also able to see the 12th green from where I was standing on 13, which turned out to be one of the most pivotal holes of the Masters. I was standing right where most of the players were hitting their second shots on 13 so I could watch them finish the hole. And at 18, it was great to see the second shots and the patron’s reactions — which made it obvious what was happening on and around the green.
As the day unfolded, it was hard not to appreciate how much work the pros put into their game to compete at this level and marvel at some of the shots that they make. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they have tour van technicians to adjust their clubs to the exact specs they require either! While not every golfer can be a professional, every golfer can certainly benefit from the same tools that the pros use on tour and even at home. Understanding how Mitchell Golf Angle Machines and tools work to enhance golfers are all levels can raise your game significantly.
The energy and roars on Sunday that filled Augusta National were like none I have heard before. Love Tiger or not, we witnessed history on Sunday and if you ask me, it wasn’t the final chapter! We can all thank Tiger for what he has done for the game of golf. Even as I am working out a way to make it to the famed Black Course at Bethpage next month, I can’t help but start planning the trip to Augusta in 2020!
