Magic of The Masters resumes at Augusta National

Masters' Life: Episode One


STATESBORO, Ga (Statesboro Herald) – The Augusta skies on Monday wereforecast to be not so friendly, but a warm and mostly sunny day greeted patrons to the magic of The Masterson the first day of practice.
After all, the last time Spieth was seen at Augusta, he was giving the course record a run for its money and nearly completing the greatest Sunday comeback in tournament history.
And then there is Tiger.
Sure, he hasn’t won at Augusta since 2005. And sure, he hasn’t won any major championship since the U.S. Open in 2008.
But a win at the Tour Championship to conclude the 2018 season proved that Woods is capable of more than just a one-off great round and can actually compete with –and beat –the best in the world in a huge tournament setting.
Regardless of results at Augusta, it will be a long time before Woods cedes the title of biggest draw on the course.
So here’s to another week of some of the best golf in theworld, played at a living and breathing shrine to the game.
Sunday’s jacket ceremony still seems a long way off, but this is just one week of the year and it’s always gone before you know it.It’s Masters week.
Soak it all in.
