Can’t resist… The Masters and Augusta National posts are on the way…

augusta national the mastersSomeone at Golf Digest apparently didn’t get the Masters tickets they requested. Join the club. Augusta National will be dropping from No. 2 of “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” to No. 3. The new No. 2 is Shinnecock Hills. Pine Valley is the perennial and uncontested No. 1. Anybody want to get me a round at Pine Valley so I can confirm how good it is?

When asked about the Augusta ranking Tiger Woods said “Maybe they can’t draw the ball.”

Golf Digest’s top 10:
Pine Valley
Shinnecock Hills
Augusta National
Cypress Point
Pebble Beach
Winged Foot
Seminole and Crystal Downs

Augusta only cracks top 10

Augusta National only came in at No. 10 on their list of “Top 100 classic courses” built before 1960. #10?

One response to “Augusta National drops from #2 to #3?”

  1. I’d be glad to make it a twosome, Tony. If we can’t get on Pine Valley, I’d settle for any of the top ten.
