    If you want a hat to memorialize the year you went buy 2 hats. In 2022 you don't want to be wearing a masters 2019 hat.

    Also you get cups with dates on them for cokes and domestic beers.

    Yeah, I will never complain that I got to go to a Sunday round, but the fact that neither Tiger nor Phil played and Bubba won keeps me from bragging about going in 2014.

    I've never been but my grandpa went in 97 and brought me back a shirt that says it's from the 97 Masters. I used to kind of be bummed that it was year specific but now that I've grown and realized how special that year was, it will be a cool shirt to hang on to.

    97 is one of the few years that would be awesome to have something dated

    Yea it’s not great bob. His admission alone about checking his stats after a round in the middle of a tourney just proves he’s in his own head. Dude is just immature, hard to remember how young some of these guys are.

    I have a close friend that was tight enough with RFJ to play golf with him and have Ray sponsor him to get into the country club. He likes him a lot but only knew him recently. I think there are people who know him longer through Wake that don’t have as good of an opinion and it’s probably fair.

    Will be there Tuesday for the first time. If I can spend less than $500 on merch, I'll be happy.

    The real question is not the hat choice, but the cup choice when you get a beer. Green or clear? Year or no year? Also do you want a mix or a matching set?

    Yeah, I'd be cool with having the year on a cup. Barring something spectacularly unbelievable, I'd rather not have it on a shirt or hat

    It's really bad. I bought a fucking peter millar bathing suit one year, I have 2 of the smathers and branson belts. You just lose your mind in there.

    First timers definitely need a peter millar summer comfort shirt, a good hat and a good t shirt.

    Rhinehart's is fun. Gets very crowded but the food is alright and it's a place that lots of people hang out. T Bonz for steaks. Might see some players there.

    Just a heads up, if anyone wants to buy actual Masters gear, get onto MMO Golf online. You'll pay double but it's authentic.

    Yea was always going to happen with the land purchases around Berkman Rd. Going to play incredibly hard now. An Impossible Green already.

    Kisner was talking on a podcast a few months ago, he played the lengthened #5, and it was brutal.

    I don't know why they keep trying to make Augusta brutal. That is what we have the US Open for. I like to watch guys be able to make shots and not just hold on for dear life.

    I agree and it gives the older players a chance to contend. Older players usually don’t have the length to contend at a US Open. Something like what happened at the 86 Masters isn’t possible anywhere else other than the British Open

    Exactly. This lengthening of holes just creates more bogey opportunities for the average to short hitters. More of the field is out of contention which makes the whole tournament less exciting.

    Beyond that, they’re not lengthening holes in proportion to how they used to play. It’s not like everyone got two clubs longer so they made every hole two clubs longer. They’re just indiscriminantly lengthening the holes they actually have extra room on and destroying the intrigue of the actual golf holes. They turned #7 from one of the best short par 4s in the world into one of the worst holes on the property.

    Also Tom Watson and Greg Norman had an excellent chance to win in consecutive British Opens(I think it was consecutive years). It’s why the Masters and the British are my two favorite tournaments of the year because experience is the best club in the bag instead of just raw power
