There are only two things that make me cry every time I see them: 1. When Spock died in Star Trek Wrath of Khan. 2. When they hit the ceremonial tee shots at the Masters Tournament!

The Big Three hit their ceremonial tee shots. The 2015 Masters has officially begun.

Today is the par-3 tournament day at the Masters Tournament.  Tiger Woods will be playing this time around, which is not his usual method of operation.

The par-3 tournament has been going since 1960.  The par-3 is a fun tournament where players interact closely with fans.  Some players who are not in the Masters Tournament are allowed to play the par-3 tournament.   Prior to the par-3 tournament there used to be a driving contest.

The par-3 tournament takes place at Augusta National’s par-3 course, possibly the most beautiful par-3 course in the world, though the folks at Three Tops located at Treetops Resort might argue that point.  As you will likely hear, no player who has won the par-3 contest has gone on to win the Masters Tournament.

I walked every hole of Augusta National’s par-3 course a couple of years ago and shot a ton of photos.  For one shot I even snuck onto a little boat I found in the lake.  The skies were a little gray the day I shot them but they still look great.  I put together a gallery of 77 images of the course, the largest and most complete online photo gallery of the course that I’m aware of.  All for you HOG “patrons.”  Click the photos or the link below to view the gallery.

The wife has fallen in love and become obsessed with a new house.  Quite frankly, on a blogger’s budget the only new house we could realistically look at right now would be a toy house for the 2-year old.  She wants the house so bad she has actually APPROVED the $20 entry free to enter the Draft Kings Million Dollar Masters fantasy golf tournament.  I know a little about golf, so what the hell.  Here goes $20.

I set up an affiliate account with Draft Kings. If you want to try and win the million, click the image or link above and sign up. That way if I don’t win the million, I’ll make four cents commission and be closer to my retirement in 138,083 years.


HOG Eye View of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament – Part Deuce

This is part two in a series of what I hope to be very interesting photos of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament.  I’m hoping to show some less common angles, viewpoints, and interesting things in an effort to show a different perspective…because that’s how I roll.

Below is an information board. These are found in a few locations around the course.  Patrons can see where their favorite players are to plan their viewing enjoyment.

Masters beer is fairly cheap, though it did go up $1.00 this year.  Here’s a shot of one of the refreshment stands from behind, showing the spent beer kegs at the end of a practice round.

I presume these two gentlemen are checking the moisture level of one of the greens below.

There are a few parallel fairways at Augusta National.  Honestly I can’t remember which these are, but you can see at least three below:

The new practice range at Augusta National is very nice, of course. It has quite a bit of seating.

Below is a massive open area as seen from the edge of the 18th green, looking toward the 7th green way off in the distance.

Below is a cool look at the par-5 2nd green as it is approached by the players.  This photo is not far from where Louis Oosthuizen made the double eagle.

Below is a look at the front part of the par-4 10th green.  The picture does not do the vertical aspects of this hole justice.  The place where I’m standing is quite a bit higher than the putting surface, and the area short of the green is much lower, going back up a big hill to the tee.

Speaking of elevation changes, look at the drop from the fairway on the par-5 2nd below.  It drops hard to the right, and down to the green.
