I said I wasn’t going to do it, but, I can’t control myself!!!
THE MASTERS IS COMING!!!
Whew, there I screamed it and I feel much better… ahhhhh.
If you’re a golfer, and, most likely, you are because you are reading this deeply buried post, lol, then you know exactly what I mean; THE MASTERS IS COMING!!! (I can’t wait!)
The official golf season for those of us that don’t play golf for a living, and, quite honestly, most of those who do play golf for a living…….. begins, this year, the second week of April; Masters Week. That’s right, Masters Week. You’ll notice that week is so important, they don’t have to use an ‘apostrophe s’ on Masters and the “W” in Week is capitalized… really, check it out; Masters Week!
The Europeans will try to tell us that the most important and recognized golf tournament in the world is “The Open”. (In fact, we Americans can’t even pronounce it right. We say Open, they say; “Ooopppennnn”. But, it’s hogwash! The most revered and recognized golf tournament in the world is The Masters, bar none!! We just can’t wait for the incredible week when we can view the Dogwoods, the Azaleas and the pageantry (sound like Jim Nance, don’t I?) of Augusta National. Once we hear that song for the first time; Augusta, written by Kenny Loggins (did you know that?)
“Well, it’s springtime in the valley on Magnolia Lane
It’s the Augusta National and the master of the game
Who’ll wear that green coat on Sunday afternoon?
Who’ll walk the 18th fairway singing this tune…. “ read the story….
Man, it just sticks in your brain and draws mind images of Jack @ 46 …. “Yes, Sir!!” winning for his final time with Steve, son and caddy, of Larry Mize chipping in on #11 against Greg Norman and so many other images… lol, Phil Mickelson almost jumping on 18th green, Ben Crenshaw, head in hands, sobbing after his second and unexpected win.
Yep, it’s coming; THE MASTERS during MASTERS WEEK….
Can you wait? Gotta go search out some of those special moments.…
Amen (Corner) lol
