Masters Week is FINALLY Here! AHH….
Hey Everyone, I’m beyond excited for this week! When you’re a golfer, or golf fan you can’t deny the excitement that surrounds this week! Ever since my first trip to Augusta when I was 6, I have been in love with everything about it! The game’s greatest all join for the first major of the year at one of the Most Beautiful courses in the World!
This year I had the pleasure to attend Wednesdays practice round with a first timer. Going with someone for the first time is almost as cool as it gets! That first walk past the clubhouse to number on tee is breathtaking! I’ve been 5 times, this being my 6th and the older I get the more I enjoy and appreciate what Augusta National has to offer!
Tuesday night 4/3/12 storms ripped through Augusta leaving the course covered in debree. The gates we’re supposed to open at 8am but didn’t end up opening until 8:30 due to tree limbs and pine straw everywhere. The saddest part was the wind and rain ruined all of the Azaleas which are a staple in the Masters scenery. But what can you do about Mother Nature? NOTHING! They are expecting more rain today and tomorrow- so hopefully as many groups get in as possible!
Some key groups in the first round are: 8:45- Adam Scott, Bo Van Pelt, and Martin Kaymer. 12:47- Mike Wier, Brandt Snedeker, and Webb Simpson. 12:58- Vijay Singh, Lee Westwood, and Jim Furyk.
I’m going to make this week short and sweet and share my array of pictures I took yesterday afternoon!

Happy Masters Week to you all, who do you all think will bring home the prestigious green jacket this week? I have my money on Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods, or Webb Simpson! We’ll see? Can’t wait to watch it all unfold.
See you Monday to recap the weekends events! – Susan
