LAST WEEK'S QUESTION: What is your favorite part of Masters week?  

My favorite part of Masters week is a tie:
1a: Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player hitting the first shots on Thursday and thinking of Arnold Palmer.
1b: The back nine on Sunday.
A close second is the Par-3 Contest.

Masters week to a fan of golf is like Super Bowl week to a football fan with one exception — the course/field the game is played on. One wonders if what is viewed of the course on television is as beautiful in person as on television? Until I had the rare chance to visit the Masters (2011), I realized the course was even more beautiful than one could imagine. Now I spend my Masters weeks only thinking of my past experiences and memories, and longing for the chance to return to the Garden of Eden called Augusta National Golf Club.

My favorite part of the Masters is that once a year, golf returns to the way it used to be. A great game, played by great players with patrons being respectful of players and others surrounding them. No BaBa Booey's or other screams by idiots who don’t understand how the game was intended to be played and watched. Oh, yes, and the pimento sandwich for $1.50 is another great part of the event.
