Actually, itīs now a tradition like all the others, thanks to the final destruction of the course. Even with this crappy weather, the old Augusta would have given us -6 to -8 for the winner, an eagle or two on the back nine for three players, and a chance at excitement. Hemorraghing (sic) is the only excitement I anticipate for Sunday.

If these guys can hit -6 to -8, or better, then the course is too easy. Augusta was perfect this year ... and each course, each week should strive to provide that level of compitition for all the pros. No whining is to be expected, since "I didn't shoot a gazillion under this week".

Jen, I have been on a couple of Wednesdays. One of Augusta's dirty little secrets is that practice day tickets are readily avaiable at a small premium of course from, ahem, ticket brokers outside the gates. I submit my application every year for practice day tickets but have yet to get them through normal channels. I thought I knew the course through watching every Masters on tv for the past 30+ years but it's hard to believe how much undulation the fairways and greens have until you see it in person. The 10th fairway looks like a waterfall.

That's awesome Jen. I can only imagine
how green and crisp everything was. I
know that the caddies down there get
one play day per year, and all of them
try to get in at least 45 holes before
they're kicked off the course. People
drive from 3-4 hours away just to do it.
But can you blame them?

And you must've been excited to see
Goosen staring down the leaderboard on
Sunday this year. Talk about a cool
customer. But no worries. He'll win
that tournament soon enough I'm sure.
