    2019 Masters adventures Tuesday to Thursday

    Months ago I received that magical email about getting picked to have the ability to buy 2 Masters tickets for this Thursday. In the lightning strikes twice category, a family friend sold me his Wednesday tickets as well because friends of his couldn’t go. After months of dreaming about this week and after a way too early flight out of Dallas, my buddy Marc and I are finally here. I haven’t been to the course yet but first impressions are that this is a small town with a week of golf Spring Breakers invading town for some bucket list fun. I figured I’d put some pictures as I go through this post. Upgraded the dad style SUV rental for a bad ass Dodge Challenger: great call on my part!! Two hour muscle car fueled ride to town, checked into the nearby Airbnb which is pretty good, and off to Hooters for the John Daly visit. I really enjoyed the three seconds of quality time with him! Weird scene but hey, ya gotta make a buck somehow! Next off to the World of Beer to have a beer or three and hung out for a bit with the founder of Atomic Golf who had a setup there. Cool dude and great ball markers, and a great T-shirt too. I’m taking a ton of pictures with a digital camera on the course tomorrow so I will post a bunch when I get back home. Weather looks pretty good for the next two days so we are hoping for some great times out there!!
