No more Hootie. He’s stepping down as chairman of Augusta National, home of the worlds best golf tournament. He’s being replaced by Billy Payne.

I’ll miss the dry, snobbish replies Hootie gave to the press when they asked questions that were over the line in his mind. I’ll miss the uncomfortable “here they come now” moments in Butler Cabin.

Hopefully Billy is a fireball like Hootie. I wonder what his take on a “Masters Ball” is…
