A big congrats to our new Masters champion, Sergio Garcia! This time of year and this tournament in general always makes me wish I was better at golf. I’ve tried my hand at the sport a few times – taking lessons in college, regular trips to the driving range and putting greens, and even playing in a charity tournament – but I’ve never dedicated the time it takes to master the game. I also don’t regularly follow the sport professionally, except for when it comes to the Masters.
Living just two hours from August National it’s hard not to follow this tournament. Most Atlantans know at least one people who has experienced the Masters, or has experienced it themselves. I am fortunate enough to be in the latter group, in 2015 Ryan and I made the trip down for a practice round and were blown away. It is even more beautiful in person and the benefit of the practice rounds are you can bring cameras in and players are relaxed and a lot more accessible.
It was an experience I will never forget, and would love to have again. With the tournament wrapping up yesterday I thought I would share some pics from my day at August National. Enjoy!
