Ah, it’s that time of year again when a would-be golfer girl’s fancy turns to the greens. Is there a more evocative golf event than the history-laden The Masters Tournament at Augusta National, a veritable cathedral to the sport. “Since 1934, the Masters Tournament has been home to some of golf’s greatest moments. Amidst blooming azaleas, towering pines and flowering dogwoods, the first full week of April ushers in a stage unique to golf and to sport. Over four days and 72 holes, the smallest field in major championship golf competes for a chance to capture the Green Jacket and a place in Masters history.” Read it’s rich history at Masters.com.
For those that can’t make the pilgrimage south, you can catch all of the drama and excitement, including Leaderboard, Schedules and Live Coverage at Masters.com.

Amazon has scads of accessories and training aids – never enough of those!
