  1. RP this keeps popping up for me along the top, so I figured I better post it in case you missed it.
  2. I was lucky enough to win the grand prize for the Masters round of the #SpyStaffSlam year long contest. The prize was ANY set of Wilson irons custom built to my specs. This probably won't be a great review, for that I apologize. The "challenge" I had was last fall I was custom fit for a set of Mizuno JPX 900 forged irons, so I wasn't in the market for a new set of irons. However, I needed to get my 12 year old son a new set as he's outgrown his junior set. I was trying to figure this out for some time in terms of what to get him, senior/ladies/reg flex, a teen set, length and all of those things that had to be figured out with a pre-teen, not to mention that he's a lefty. So I opted to use this chance to get him his irons (yes, I was very jealous - my first real set came from Kmart). After looking at all the incredible choices Wilson offers I settled on the C300. These are beautiful irons for sure, and I elected not to get him the forged as the regular ones, as far as I researched, seemed to have some more forgiveness. The challenge now is what to do with length, lie and flex. I do not live close to a fitter so I had to take the static measurements, and research online. I decided to go with the XP90 regular flex shaft as it seemed to be on the lighter side for, but also a regular flex so he can continue to grow into them. The stock length of these irons is long (7 iron is 37.5" compared to my standard length of my JPX 900 which is 36.75"). So I had them cut .75" short, which made them just .25" shorter than my set. He still needs to choke down on them, but they're more manageable. To compensate for his height and the length of the clubs, I had them set at 1* flat. For grips I got him the standard wilson grip. These are beautiful clubs! He was ready to go hit them right away and so we went out. It will take some getting used to for sure, but it will come. So while I cannot give you a full review of performance, the process was simple and they were shipped quickly and to spec. He is now set for this year and many to come and I am so looking forward to playing golf with him and my daughter for many years. Thank you My Golf Spy and Wilson for the amazing prize! It's the closest thing to winning the lottery as I'll ever get.

  4. I get pretty sentimental this time of year and thought it might be nice to share some of our favorite Masters memorabilia. Photo of the first Masters field in 1934 put out by Acushnet and Reuter. Horton Smith claimed the title with a 4 day total of 284. Snack Shack Sundries The Masters is the only sporting venue around where stuff like this still costs $1.00 Whether it be a photo or the Augusta National visor you wear every year during tournament week, let's see your Masters memorabilia MGS!

  6. hey all, name is chris. new to the site. run a hospitality house in augusta for the masters. look fwd to the interaction. www.azaleahospitality.com
  7. Take a good look at Brandt Snedeker's bag tomorrow - we understand that he'll be bagging the new Bridgestone JGR 5 wood for The Masters. He and Kuchar are already bagging the driver, but Sneds will be adding the fairway wood to his bag this week. Not bad for a club Bridgestone did not intend to be used on Tour...
  8. May have to put these on the menu for Masters Weekend -- thinking they might approach higher levels of awesomeness if they're --- grilled? Masters Recipe: How to Make a Pimento Cheese Sandwich Augusta National's famous pimento cheese sandwich. by Mike Walker Posted:Thu Mar. 26, 2015 What gets the most raves from golf fans attending the Masters for the first time? Sure, the fairways are lush, the white-sand bunkers sparkle, the azaleas are in full bloom, and golf history comes alive on every hole. But the concession prices really blow first-timers away: they're the best bargain in sports! Ham and cheese on rye? $2.50. Coca-Cola? $1.50. Domestic Beer? $3. But the most traditional Augusta menu offering is the pimento cheese sandwich, which costs just $1.50. If you can't make it to Augusta National, here's how to make one at home. How to Make a Masters-Style Pimento Cheese Sandwich You'll need: 3 cups shredded white cheddar cheese 2 cups shredded yellow sharp cheddar cheese 4 oz crumbled blue cheese 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 1 (4-oz) jar sliced pimentos, drained 1 cup light mayo 2 tbs Dijon mustard Loaf of white bread Combine cheeses, pimentos, mayo and mustard in a food processor and process until smooth. Cover and chill. Spread on bread slices. Makes four sandwiches. From the book Par 3 Tea-Time at the Masters by the Junior League of Augusta, Ga., available on Amazon.
  9. Masters Contest How to play: Tell us in this thread, who you think will win the Masters, as well as their total score (tie breaker), and their Sunday score (2nd tie breaker). For example.....Rory McIlroy, -6 total, 69 in final round. If there are multiple entrants that still tie, those names will go into a hat and it will be a blind draw. ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BEFORE THE FIRST TEE TIME ON THURSDAY The Prize: A Super Stroke Masters Edition Slim 3.0. Good Luck.
  10. That was an incredible performance by young Jordan over the weekend... The kid was dominant and unflappable from start to finish, but one thing struck me as odd while watching: He's not Bubba or Rory long... He didn't pull off miraculous approach or escape shots like Tiger or Phil (not that he had to....) His putting was exceptional, but most of these guys are exceptional putters. He was just machine like in his consistency and his misses weren't deadly, even if no single part of his game made you say "wow." It was his overall game that made you say "wow." So what is it about this kid that makes him so good?
  11. As if we needed another reason... I'm sure most pros have similar commitment to worthy causes, but this story just tugs at the ol' heartstrings... Streelman helps make Masters wish come true Jason Sobel, Senior Golf Writer AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Jennifer Couch first noticed some irregular behavior in her 11-year-old son, Ethan, two years ago. His hands trembled. His feet were sore. His balance was so poor that he struggled to put on his pants and tie his shoes. She took him to see their pediatrician on a Friday. Her voice quivering, she explained her concerns. By the time she offered her own diagnosis, tears were rolling down her cheeks. Between sobs, Jennifer told the doctor, "I think he's going to need brain surgery." Tests confirmed their deepest fears. Ethan had a tectal glioma. A brain tumor was blocking his body's ability to circulate spinal cord fluid, causing hydrocephalus and all of the other symptoms in his behavior. Four days later, he underwent surgery. Doctors discovered that the tumor, though benign, was inoperable. There was nothing they could do but continue monitoring him on a regular basis. When Ethan awoke from the surgery, a nurse entered his room. "I heard you were a champ," she told him. "So I want you to go home and think of a wish. Pick anything." He didn't need to go home to think. This was a boy who'd been carried around the golf course by Jennifer as a newborn while his father, Jeff, a former golf professional near their home in Spruce Grove, Alberta, would play nine holes. He'd grown to love the game. And so when offered one wish by that nurse, Ethan didn't hesitate. "I want to go to the Masters," he said. Kevin Streelman didn't know this story when he called Ethan on the morning of March 7, two days after his 13th birthday. The truth is, he knew absolutely nothing about Ethan, besides the fact that the boy had a wish to attend the year's biggest golf tournament and he wanted to make that wish come true. This week marks Streelman's fourth Masters appearance. The first time he played, in 2011, he invited his father to caddie for him in the traditional Par-3 Contest. The next time, his mother got the call. Last year, it was his father-in-law. Not long after qualifying again by winning the Travelers Championship, Streelman decided he wanted to offer the opportunity to someone who really deserved it. His daughter, Sophia, was born the previous December amidst pregnancy complications. She'd spent seven days in the NICU before coming home. Enduring that afforded him a matured perspective. "That changed a lot of the ways I see children," he says. "I have an entirely new appreciation for what parents with children having tough times are going through." Streelman contacted his local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He asked if there were any kids who had a wish to attend the Masters. Soon enough, he was calling Ethan with an offer. "Yeah, I know who you are," the boy replied when the pro golfer introduced himself. He didn't know why he was calling, though. Streelman explained that, as a Masters competitor, he was allowed to choose his caddie for Wednesday's event. He was choosing Ethan. The boy fell silent. His parents, each listening over speaker phone, began crying. When Ethan finally spoke, his voice was shaking. "I just wanted to go to the Masters," he'd later say. "I didn't expect this." He's now in Augusta, along with his entire family, two years removed from making his Masters wish, preparing to wear the famous white jumpsuit given to all caddies. The boy who owns a career-low score of 82 won't be bashful in the role, either. "I'll definitely make sure he's hitting the right club," he says with a confident laugh. As Ethan spends the afternoon with Streelman, he won't worry about the brain tumor. He won't worry about the MRI he'll undergo next week or the unknown long-term prognosis. He'll be too focused on having his wish come true. As for the man alongside him, he's just hoping to brighten the life of a kid who could use it. "I just want to open the door to someone and hopefully give him a great day after going through some rough times," Streelman says. "This isn't about me. It's about giving back. It's about using the opportunity that I have to make someone's wish come true."

  14. Date: April 8-12, 2015 Location: Augusta National Augusta, GA Defending Champion: Bubba Watson Top Storylines: Tiger is playing Tiger is having fun Tiger played well in practice Tiger, Tiger, Tiger Oh and everybody else showed up as well Featured Pairings: Come on, it's the Masters, they're all featured, but just in case.......... Arnold Palmer-Gary Player-Jack Nicklaus: This trio kicks off the Masters with one of the greatest traditions in golf, the ceremonial opening tee shots. It's an opportunity to pay homage to three of the game's greats. Tee time: Round 1 -- 7:40 a.m. Bubba Watson-Justin Rose-Gunn Yang: Watson has won two of the past three Masters. This is his first start since a third-place finish at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. He'll play alongside Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion, and reigning U.S. Amateur champion Gunn Yang. Tee times: Round 1 -- 9:24 a.m.; Round 2 -- 12:42 p.m. Adam Scott-Dustin Johnson-Antonio Murdaca: Amateurs traditionally play alongside past Masters champion. Scott will play alongside countryman Murdaca, the 2014 Asia-Pacific Amateur champion. Dustin Johnson, who won this year's Cadillac Championship, is the group's third member. Tee times: Round 1 -- 9:35 a.m.; Round 2 -- 12:53 p.m. Phil Mickelson-Rory McIlroy-Ryan Moore: All eyes will be on this group. McIlroy is trying to complete the career Grand Slam. Mickelson is a three-time Masters champion; he finished T17 at last week's Shell Houston Open. He used to be an annual contender at Augusta National, but he missed the cut last year and finished T54 the prior year. Moore was an amateur when he finished a career-best T13 at the 2005 Masters. Tee times: Round 1 -- 10:41 a.m.; Round 2 -- 1:48 p.m. J.B. Holmes-Martin Kaymer-Brandt Snedeker: Holmes, the winner of last week's Shell Houston Open, has finished first or second in half of his past six starts. He has made just one previous Masters start (T25, 2008). He's playing with Kaymer, who won last year's PLAYERS and U.S. Open but has struggled at Augusta National. Snedeker has two top-six finishes at Augusta National.Tee times: 10:52 a.m.; Round 2 -- 1:59 p.m. Matt Kuchar-Brooks Koepka-Graeme McDowell: Augusta National has been a special place for Kuchar, who starred there as an amateur in 1998 and has finished in the top eight in the past three Masters. Koepka, who finished fourth at last year's U.S. Open and recently won his first TOUR title at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, is making his Masters debut. McDowell, the 2010 U.S. Open champion, has missed the cut in five of his seven Masters starts. Tee times: 1:04 p.m.; Round 2 -- 9:35 a.m. Jordan Spieth-Henrik Stenson-Billy Horschel: Spieth, a runner-up in last year's Masters, is grouped with two past FedExCup champs. Spieth has finished no worse second in his past three PGA TOUR starts. He lost last week's Shell Houston Open in a playoff and won the Valspar Championship. Stenson finished a career-best 14th in last year's Masters. Horschel finished T37 last year in his Masters debut. Tee times: Round 1 -- 1:15 p.m.; Round 2 -- 9:57 a.m. Tiger Woods-Jamie Donaldson-Jimmy Walker: Woods is making his first start since withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open in February. He shot a career-worst 82 in his first start of 2015, the Waste Management Phoenix Open. This is Woods' first Masters start since 2013. He missed last year's Masters after back surgery. Walker won the Valero Texas Open in his last start; he finished eighth last year in his Masters debut. Donaldson finished 14th at last year's Masters. This is the second-to-last group of the day. Tee times: Round 1 -- 1:48 p.m.; Round 2 -- 10:30 a.m. Jason Day-Sergio Garcia-Rickie Fowler: The last group of the day is a strong one. Day, who won this year's Farmers Insurance Open, has finished in the top three in two Masters, including a T2 in 2011. Garcia missed the cut in last year's Masters, but finished eighth in 2013. Garcia has finished outside the top 30 in his past three PGA TOUR starts. Fowler, who finished in the top five in all four majors last year, has just one top 25 in six PGA TOUR starts in 2015. Tee times: Round 1 -- 1:59 p.m.; Round 2 -- 10:41 a.m. TV Coverage: Wednesday (par 3 tourney) - ESPN 3:00PM-5:00PM EST Thursday & Friday - Golf Channel (Live from the Masters) 8:00AM-3:00PM EST, ESPN 3:00PM-7:30PM EST Saturday & Sunday - Golf Channel (Live from the Masters) 9:30AM-3:00PM EST, CBS 3:00PM-7:00PM EST
  15. Tiger put his short game on display at Augusta...especially love the line about where Tiger gets his mail at Augusta! What yips? Tiger Woods arrives at Augusta, puts short game to immediate test By Geoff Shackelford AUGUSTA, Ga. -- For a guy with the yips, Tiger Woods just announced to the world that he's not afraid to show off his short game. Showing up at Augusta National's tournament practice area around 3:40 ET, Woods briefly stopped to talk to Mike Weir about the Canadian's elbow issues, them marched boldly to the short game practice area. Knowing all eyes at the range were on his wedge practice and probably aware there was an audience on Golf Channel's “Live From” hoping to see if he's cured the short game yips, Woods took a green bag of balls from caddie Joe LaCava, put on headphones, appeared to dance to the music at one point and went straight to work hitting the same lofted wedges that have given him such fits. Talk about a bold statement. While it's hardly unusual for a professional golfer to warm-up hitting wedges, any yipper can tell you that playing the shot that gives you fits, and doing it in front of a crowd, ranks up there in the Fun Department with root canals and prostate exams. More curious was his decision to listen to music while warming up. Was it the soothing voice of a guru? Or simply a nod to new endorsee Sol Republic, who Woods signed with in January. After hitting no flubs and looking crisp with his shots, Woods moved to the main tee, where swing consultant Chris Como awkwardly waited while former instructor Sean Foley and Woods joked around. Eventually, Woods began moving through the bag and headed for the first tee for a late nine at Augusta National. If the range swagger was a statement, the body language on course all but spilled over the top. Woods blew his first tee shot into his usual spot on the 9th fairway, where Woods also gets his mail when he's in Augusta. Anyway, Woods then hit his approach to six feet and he quickly knocked in a birdie as if it was a mere afterthought. He then took two wedges and two balls, and the crowd grew eerily quiet. But Woods moved around the diabolical first green hitting all manner of shots, showing no signs of distress. A few in the gallery of 500 or so patrons gasped at his sleek physique, but otherwise welcomed him back with various shout-outs. Playing partner O'Meara eventually ran out of putts to try on a green he's seen plenty, turning to watch the downright jovial Woods chip before moving to the putter. After a few long putts, Woods scooped up his ball with the back cavity of his putter and twirled it over his head, keeping the ball in the putter the entire time. He stopped short of Moonwalking off the first green. Almost like old times.
  16. So Tiger has officially announced that he is going to play the masters. Any thoughts? I know Kenny is interested in his under garment selection. Anyone else?
  17. So Tiger got a whole practice round in at Augusta and fired a 74 (+2). It's good to see that he is there, and fuels the speculation that he may actually play. So what say you, fine golf-loving internet people? Will Tiger play? How do you think he will perform if he is able to strap up the TW15s? (I saw the odds this morning for him winning are at 50-1)
  18. Hey everyone! It's that time of year that people love giving stuff away, so it would be helpful to have a place to share sign-ups for giveaways online. Other than Rory giving away 5 pairs of headphones on his Facebook page (facebook.com/RoryMcilroy) I got an email about this one from 2nd Swing last week. Grand prize is two '14 Masters Scotty's. www.2ndswing.com/t-augusta-georgia-contest.aspx Also, I don't get any bonus entries for sharing the link, just thought it would be good to have a place to share 'em.

  20. Bummah... Why Bubba Watson won't be serving Waffle House food at this year's Masters champions dinnerBy Alex Myers Bubba Watson made his love of the Waffle House known when he went there for a victory meal after claiming his second Masters. But will he serve any food from the breakfast chain when he hosts his second champions dinner? "You can't use a name brand," Watson said during a teleconference on Monday. Apparently, Augusta National's long list of strict rules extend to Masters winners and food. No wonder Adam Scott didn't serve an Outback Bloomin' Onion last year. Related: Augusta National's unwritten rules Watson's answer makes it seem like he at least posed the question. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time a Masters champ hosted a dinner of casual food. In 1998, Tiger Woods chose cheeseburgers, fries and milkshakes. Watson seems reluctant to give away any details regarding the meal. He kept it a secret in 2013 -- Nick Faldo first tweeted the menu of grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and macaroni and cheese and cornbread after -- and he plans to do the same this time around. "It's the one chance that I can just hold everything from everybody, so I'm doing it," Watson said. "And I might never get that chance again."
  21. This golf blog is running a contest for the Masters, the grand prize is a Limited Edition Scotty and it looks pretty great. They're giving away some other Masters branded stuff, too. Thought I'd share because, apparently, you get extra drawing entries if you do. Here's the link! Masters Contest Who do you think has a shot at winning this weekend? I always cheer for Sergio, just because I feel like it has to happen eventually, right?
