The Black Night, Gary Player, will play his last Masters this year

Gary Player’s 52nd Masters Tourament is this year.  It will be his final appearance.  Gary won the Masters (checking my Masters coffee cup) in 1961, 1974 and 1978.

Player:

“I can’t begin to express the fond memories I have of the Masters and everything that comes with it… slipping into the Green Jacket; the Southern hospitality of the patrons; the interviews under the oak tree, the rigorous competition; the Champions Dinner; the roars on Amen Corner; the drive down Magnolia Lane. I’m going to miss walking up the 18th fairway each year, but my time has come to say goodbye as a competitor.”

The Masters has not only the best golf course, it has the best web team.  Masters.org is the best golf site in the world without a doubt.

Now the gurus from Augusta are social networking.  Here are links to The Masters’  Facebook and Twitter.
