Azaleas in bloom at Augusta
AUGUSTA, Ga. – We’re under way in Augusta. Sunshine, azaleas in bloom, temperatures in the eighties and grass that would make every lawn care professional on the planet ecstatic.
Yes, it is Augusta National, and the final practice day and Par-3 contest. Despite having been a regular on the CBS crew for the last 12 years, I still get excited on Wednesday when arriving at “The National.” Seeing old friends that have been on the crew here for up to 50 – yes 50 – years makes it extra special.
The obligatory trip to the Pro Shop was followed by a quick lunch and out on the Par-3 course “on cans” by 1:45. That means we have headsets on and are communicating with the producers. My regular assignment is the 7th hole, a 115-yard hole that plays slightly uphill to a green that slopes severely from back to front.
