On the Masters

amen_corner1This has been a big week in sports: MLB’s Opening Day, the ultimate end on the Road to the Final Four, the Frozen Four starts tomorrow, and ultimately, the beginning of one of golf’s great tournaments – the Masters.

The Masters is the first golf major of the PGA year. Fortunately it’s not about Augusta National’s members, but about a tradition, a place, its beauty, and a course offering the risk-reward axiom on most approaches to the protected green with the glass-like surface.

Each year – the same course, the same challenges, and the same reward in the end, plus some memorable moments. Whether being Nicklaus’ unbelievable win in 1986, or the thrills that Tiger continues to give us, below I offer links to this tradition as well as a few great moments. Enjoy.
