Famous Golf Blogger Releases Masters Toothpaste Scripting

Special edition! This Masters Thursday I’m releasing my highly anticipated Masters Toothpaste Scripting.  It’s my time.  It’s a script like no other. It’s the toothpaste script heard round the world.  YES SIR!

A lot of thought and planning over the past few months has gone into this toothpaste script.  We needed some oral care sure, but also looked for whitening and even kids care. It’s a family blog.  To get that piece of pulled pork out from between the right rear molars I had to throw in some dental floss, mint flavor of course.  A motorized toothbrush is a must and to finish the process, clean and fresh smile whitener.

I’m proud of this Masters toothpaste scripting. I hope you enjoy it, and the Masters Tournament.

In your life have you ever seen anything like that?


It’s the BEST time of year! NO, not the Masters… APPAREL SCRIPTS!

I’ve been waiting for this week to come for months! It’s the absolute best time of year in golf. No no no… not the Masters Tournament silly, it’s APPAREL SCRIPT SEASON!  Apparel scripts are by far my favorite part of the golf industry.  And if you’re like me, you go down to the local golf shop and buy EVERY piece of apparel in every script.  I do it in hopes I can golf just like Rory McIlory or Dustin Johnson.  Maybe if I wear the same shirt Bubba does I can hit my driver 350 yards!

2017 Masters Apparel Scripts

I must admit, apparel scripting has come a long way and I think I’ve had quite a bit to do with it.  The crop of scripts for the Masters this week is quite good.  Those busy golf PR people have been working hard all winter drawing up sketches, making designs, and hiring lawn sprinkler installers to make “cool” apparel hangers.  Below, enjoy my 2017 Masters apparel script commentary and critiques.

Bill Haas, a.k.a. “Jason”

I must start with the best scripting for 2017. I can’t resist going for it right off the bat.  For this year’s Masters Bill Haas is going with the “Halloween face” look.  It’s kind of a mask-like thing covering his whole face, but has some kind of cross burned into it… or maybe it’s stitched into it.

Love the Jason look, or is it Freddie?  I’m not sure how well Haas will play this week, with his whole face and eyes covered.

Louis Oosthuizen

I’m quite concerned about Louis Oosthuizen’s ability to compete in the Masters with only one pair of pants. Those could get quite, um, not pleasant after four days of huffing around the hilly Augusta National.  He’s okay in the shirt department though.  I don’t see any shoes, underwear, or socks.  That one hat could get a little gamy by the end of the tournament.

Dustin Johnson

adidas went cheap this year and is using the same photoshop template for apparel scripts that they did last year. Must be a cost cutting measure.  Three pairs of pants is odd, hehe.  I mean, assuming he makes the cut which pair will he wear a second time on Sunday? Or will he wear one pair Friday and Saturday, then a new clean pair on Sunday?  No socks. No hat. No underwear.  Walking Augusta in no undies could be chafe city.

Justin Thomas

Sigh. Pass the Grey Poupon.  If Justin Thomas looks even remotely like this I’ll play the first hole of my home course naked.  And how can whoever makes the fabrics in his shirts and pants do the “colors floating in a cloud outside of the fabric” thing?  I’d like to see them pull that off.  It’s a pretty complete script. He at least has shoes.

Rickie Fowler

Rickie Fowler’s script is pretty solid.  I see 4 shirts, 4 pants.   I don’t see socks or undies and I wonder about the three pairs of shoes. Assuming he makes the cut, which pair will he wear twice. When I look at the bag I can only hope he remembered his clubs. Hard to score well in the Masters with an empty golf bag.  The threads in this script are fine but I’m more intrigued by the pipe stand.  Does that fit in the tiny Masters locker room?  Did Puma hire a plumber to make that thing?  And who was first on the block with the “plumbing” stand idea?  See next analysis.

Rory McIlory

Nike has improved in their scripting.  At least this time Rory has shirts with sleeves, and four of them.  He’s got four hats, shoes, and pants too.  Nice job Nike.  I see no socks though. That might hurt.  And who knows on the undies, or does Rory “free ball” it?

More importantly, check out the killer plastic sprinkler pipe stand. Does Rory have one of those for each outfit?  Does it fit in the Augusta locker room?  Can he do pull-ups on it?  How many versions did they make until they came up with this one?  Did they have a plumber or sprinkler installer do it?  And did Nike come up with the plumbing idea before Puma?  Who was first? I want to know.

Danny Willett

Who is Danny Willett? He’s the guy that won last year, after Jordan Spieth melted down on the 12th hole.  It was actually a tremendous final round 67 with no bogeys.  I doubt Danny can play that well with no shoes or socks, or underwear for that matter.  And it might be even harder if his pants are falling down (no belt).

Henrik Stenson

Okay who is copying who? The artsy fartsy thing does nothing for me.  Nothing.  I can’t even tell which pants or shirts these are so I can go buy them at the store.  And are these clubs Henrik has four different ones, or the same one?  I hope four different ones. Henrik has a wee bit of a temper. He’s known to break stuff.

Brandt “No Face” Snedeker

I’m sorry, but the no-face thing is creepy. Especially the one on the right. I can’t go beyond that.

Jordan Spieth

Welp… Are any of these the same colors or styles he wore in last year’s final round?  I hope not, for his sake. Bad apparel scripts can cost a player a major championship.

2014 Masters Apparel Script – Golf PR Companies Take Note

Blah. All those companies above can’t hold a candle to my apparel scripting skills.  I’m not sure why one of these big golf companies hasn’t tried to hire me away from blogging, just for my scripting skills.  My 2014 Masters apparel script stands the test of time, right down to the Masters themed underwear. It’s the “apparel script heard ’round the world.”  It’s an apparel script “like no other.” “YES SIR!”

Today is the par-3 tournament day at the Masters Tournament assuming it doesn’t get washed out by the bad weather.  This 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.

Augusta Par-3 Course

Tiny greens… Augusta National Par-3 Course

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.

Masters.com Range Video Features Launch Monitor Data

Masters.com and the Masters App (iOS or Android) are as well put together and high class as the Masters Tournament.  During the few days before the tournament, and before the tournament starts, one can watch the Masters range.  No other tournament does that.  To top it off, when players hit a ball they show launch monitor and flight tracking!  This is the RANGE!

Hats off to the Masters Tournament.  Every year the tournament, and the MEDIA they produce along with it, gets better and better.

Not many changes at Augusta this year except for some traffic modifications, concessions, and this new press room. Wowsies.  It’s beautiful.

I’ve not done the Masters press room.  Haven’t applied for a credential.  As nice as it is I’m sure if I was ever there “working” for the blog, I’d be out on the course for 99% of the time.
