The Master's

(Click on pictures, they are best viewed large)

I (Daniel) had the unbelievable opportunity of attending The Masters practice round and Par 3 Tournament yesterday with my brother-in-law, Ben. My soon-to-be sister-in-law, Katie, hooked us up with afternoon tickets to see some of the best golfers in the world! It has been a dream of ours to see one of the most famed courses in the country, and we were not disappointed. The landscape was phenomenal, the azaleas were beautiful, the grass seemed impossibly real, the storied holes were legendary, and the golf was superb! Not only did we see Fred Couples hit a hole in one, but we were only feet away from Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicholas, and Gary Player....among many others (Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Vijay Singh, Zach Johnson (he won the Masters last year), etc.). Sadly, Tiger took the afternoon off, but being able to walk the course and see the precision with which these golfers play with was truly amazing. I've selected a few of the over 300 pictures taken yesterday to give you a glimpse of what we were a part of. The rest of the best photos will be posted soon.

p.s. the picture below of Ben and me was taken by an old guy who must not have been able to tilt the camera down....but that's ok.
