Lowrey Stulb is another behind-the-scenes influence on Augusta National.

If you look closely around the grounds of Augusta National this week,  you’ll see several pieces of Stulb’s architecture. Along with the  Eisenhower Cabin (also known as “Ike’s Cabin”), Stulb designed the pro  shop. He also designed one of the course’s most famous landmarks,  Sarazen Bridge.

Still, I have decided to play. I have decided to play because so many people have pushed me; the people at my university who have suffered, and my teammates and my parents, who made me start to play the sport of golf. Everyone has been supportive. I have decided to play at the Masters, not only for myself, but for the people who have made who I am. The Masters, which has been my dream, is their dream as well. Doing my best here is my obligation for them.

quote from Hideki Matsuyama.

The Masters Tournament set to start right outside the door might as well have been a million miles away. Instead of Georgia, the devastation of their homeland from last month’s earthquake and tsunami weigh heavy on the minds of Ryo Ishikawa and Hideki Matsuyama.

This is huge:
2012 daily Masters Tournament tickets available to public

Practice round tickets had been available to the public through a   random lottery, but the application process for tournament badges has   been closed since 1971. A waiting list to be considered for a tournament   badge application was closed in 1978, briefly opened in 2000 and has   been closed for more than a decade.

 Ali, left, and Andie Findlay, of Atlanta, expressed  their style  in scarves and capris. Ali wore J.Crew capris with a Juicy  Couture  jacket, and Andie found her capris at Gap and wore a North Face  jacket.  They worked their scarves into their outfits after learning  about the  cold weather. “We knew that would be the only thing seen,”  Andie said.

You don’t think of the Masters as being cold, but in 2009, Masters fashion consisted of jackets, not sundresses. See how Masters patrons looked stylish in the cold.
