Top 5 Masters Moments

April 7th, 2017

We’re well into the 2017 Masters Tournament now. Over the years there have been some amazing moments that have helped shape the the game of golf. Here are 5 of the top Masters moments in history!

5. Jack Nicklaus

nicklaus-yes-sir

In 1986, Jack Nicklaus (age 46) became the oldest man to win a Masters Tournament! On the back 9 of the final round, he shot a 30! This was his 6th Masters win!

4. 1953 Ben Hogan

11948018

Ben Hogan not only won the 1953 Masters Tournament, he won by what was at the time, a record setting 5-stroke lead! He did all of this while having only played in six tournaments that season due to the recovery schedule he was on after a nearly fatal car accident he was in 4 years before.

3. 1997 Tiger Woods

416418725_4671890290001_tout

Tiger Woods became the first African American to win this tournament when he won the 1997 Masters- with a 12-shot lead, I might add!

 

2. 1986 Jack Nicklaus

 

jacknicklausx-large

Jack Nicklaus “took the show’ (as the say) on the 17th hole of the 1986 Masters. With 3 consecutive birdies, later followed by another birdie, eagle, and yet another birdie on the 17th hole, he was simply on fire!

 

1. 1935 Gene Sarazen

ap-obit-sarazen-4_3

Gene Sarazen amazed the world by his 3-stroke comeback in the 1935 Masters Tournament. On the 15th hole (a par 5) he made a double eagle with his second stroke flying over the moat, onto the apron, bouncing and rolling it’s way toward the cup, and in it went for 2! He used a 4 wood to hit that 235 yard stroke and it became known as the “Shot heard around the world!”

5 Fun Facts about Augusta National!

March 28th, 2017

We are just about 1 week away from the 2017 Masters Tournament! So in celebration, we’ve come up with some fun facts about Augusta National!

1. Each hole has a unique name

At August National, every hole has a unique plant name. Here are a few examples: #5 is called Magnolia, #9 is Carolina Cherry, # 13 is Azalea, and # 18 is Holly.

2. “The Big Oak Tree”

 

augusta-national

Since the 1850’s “The Big Oak Tree” has stood next to the Augusta National club house. Can you imagine the things that tree has seen?!?! Basically every Master’s Tournament ever.

 3. The course design was influenced by war.

agusta national

Alister MacKenzie (who designed this course) used his experience in the British Army- in South Africa during the early 1900’s- to influence his design! One example is that the Boer’s use of camouflaged trenches inspired his use of misdirection.

4. Natural spring sprays gold

cea0ca85cfb5c62182894061651a79db

When it rains, it pours! But apparently not in a bad way…At Augusta National, when it rains, a sort-of gold dust sprays out of a beautiful natural spring on the back 9!

5. Cell phones are off limits

And last but not least: Cell phones are not allowed on the grounds. Guests actually have to use payphones!

Quiet! or Let’s Get Crazy!: Should golf tournaments crack down on or encourage rowdy crowds?

March 20th, 2017

Ian-Poulter-crowd

Golf tournaments have a long tradition of whispered commentary, a soft “golf clap” coming from the crowds after a great shot and a sense of decorum so avid fans won’t disrupt the concentration of players.”

It’s clear that the game of golf is changing. With the recent USGA rulebook changes and the fact that several men-only golf clubs (such as Muirfield Golf Club and Kasumigaseki Country Club) have voted to allow women members makes this fact very obvious. But along with these more official changes, there also seems to be a change in the atmosphere at tournaments.

Over the past few years, fans have begun acting more like football or soccer fans. In an article  from Golf Digest, written early last year, a comment was made that suggested that this rowdy behavior was a good thing for the golf industry.

“The explosion of the Phoenix Open into the most fan-friendly, fun-filled atmospheres in the sport is a success story that should make many other PGA Tour stops envious.”

Another article, from GolfDigest, references an article from the St. Paul Pioneer Press, where Tom Powers made a similar argument- that this is simply the way the game of golf is evolving and that it’s making golf tournaments more fun:

““The supposedly unrefined atmosphere did absolutely nothing to affect the quality of play. In fact, it was some of the best golf we’ve ever seen.””

But golfers have been experiencing more negative feedback from the audience than they are used to. At one point during at the 2016 Ryder Cup Tournament, someone in the gallery shouted a very crude comment to Rory McIllroy.

An article from ESPN speculated Rory McIllroy’s feelings on the behavior:

“McIlroy’s reaction was undoubtedly joy spiced with venom. He noted the “hostile environment out there,” and one got the sense that if McIlroy could have offered up a one-finger salute, he would have done so.”

In yet another article from GolfDigest, regarding the same event:

“Time and again this week the matches have been scarred by incidents that have more in common with football or soccer matches, so vitriolic and abusive have been the exchanges between spectators and players.”

I don’t know whether or not the fans’ behavior affected the outcome of the Ryder Cup, or if it affects the outcome of the traditional “Party Holes” like at TPC Scottsdale. But I do know that golf is a sport that requires a lot of concentration. So what does that mean for the audience? Should they give up their fun for the sake of the game, or should the professionals learn to deal with the distractions and rudeness? Comment and  let us know what you think!
