More madcap miscellany from the world of golf

We're not hoping the country is headed for more family Zoom quizzes any time soon but if such things were to happen, we've got the golf round covered at least

VIVA, LAS VEGAS!

'I’ll admit that when I first drove down the Las Vegas strip in a rental SUV, golf was the last thing on my mind. It 'may' not be the next time...'

It’s been 193 days since the Masters was due to take place last April but as of Friday October 16, it’s now only 27 day until the world’s best golfers finally get to return to Augusta National.

And to coincide with the 12th November restart of the 84th hosting of the Masters, the club has released a special video this week to help get patrons excited for a first-ever staging of the Masters in November.

The superb one minute and 17 second tribute-like video is hosted by Jimmy Roberts, not Jim Nantz, with the commentary:

“For more than 80-years the tournament has been a right of Spring. The Azaleas and Dogwoods waking the golfing world from its Winter slumber.

“And although this November will pass without patrons, with roars replaced by reflections, like for the rest of the world there is hope that in time the things we cherish most will feel familiar to us again in our annual tradition like any other for one year, at least, will be a Fall classic.”

And in another break from tradition there is the chance to purchase Masters merchandise online, but there is a big string attached.

Only those patrons who had tickets for this year’s Masters will be allowed to ‘shop’ line.

The Masters announced next month’s rescheduled event will feature “an exclusive online Masters Patron Shop” for online customers while there will be no sale of any Masters material on site this year.
