Augusta….Augusta…where for art thou…Masters 2017? Is very relevant considering the course being airmailed with quotes and natural phenomena from ghosts of a historic past!
It is true viewing pleasure to see the best in the world have to deal with billiard-like greens that are speed up when wind sweeps through the flailing dogwood and cedar botanical garden layout. The course could expect conditions to carry on through the weekend, and we could expect winning scores of one under or two under when Sunday afternoon arrives! That is if Charley Hoffman has anything to say about that!
Enjoy the sounds, enjoy the patrons and fans strolling through the woods, this is going to be a Masters to remember….
The bookies should be having a field day, because when the course plays this difficult, the seniors who don’t normally rank on the current stats start playing top contenders to rely on a wealth of experience especially in a Major. Isn’t it just fantastic that Golf gets the popularity of what the game truly deserves! The CBS and ESPN channels have a 24 hour service with featured groups as well as the hole by hole feature, where you can switch on the channel to see the field passing as the round nears its close. SuperSport also have been getting better regarding the channel viewing experience, expert commentary and there is dedicated Masters channel with very interesting content on the DStv Explora function, but tune into channel199 to get the edge in sports entertainment.
Preceding the tournament, the game could not have asked for more traffic on social media regarding the Lexi Thompson Penalty scenario played out at the ANA inspiration at Rancho Mirage, California. The other master stroke for publicity is for the World no.1 ranking Mens player Dustin Johnson to pull out due to unforseen injury at his rented home at Georgia after one of his practice rounds before the tournament start.
