    I don't even know for sure what "pimento cheese" actually is. It seems more like a condiment than anything.

    I've tried em. I'm with you on this.




    Pimento cheese is ok and I will have one just to say I did. The real deals are the egg salad and also the BBQ sandwiches.

    My criticism is the limited network/Augusta tv coverage. Sat-Sun CBS and only CBS can show live/recorded footage and only during the limited afternoon window that CBS has allotted for it.

I don't care if more coverage does equate to more advertising, I'd like to see golf a couple hours sooner, at least on the first 2 days.




    lol @ limited.



    Last year I posted a picture of me at work with 3 monitors and my tablet going, streaming 4 different feeds at the same time.



    in 1986 we got the last 9 holes of sunday...

    Jim Nance aside, I find the reverence to the event a little over the top. They do a wonderful job of the tournament and it is a beautiful golf course, but it's just golf FFS, this isn't the holiest of holies.




    Yep agree totally, I have never understood the reverential hushed tones and special language reserved for Augusta.

    I'm a single broadcast kind of guy, we had two TVs stacked on top of each other in college, and it was laughable. All this effort to simulcast each play, just focus on the bread and butter telecast. These multi-feed options also entice a network to privatize/charge per view, and in the not too distant future we'll all be paying premiums to view what has always otherwise been basic cable programming.... PGA Tour live is one of them. I will not pay them one dime, NOT ONE DIME!!!!

    It's a cool place no doubt. Anyone who loves golf should have the chance to see in person. The whole ticket deal is ridiculous. A couple of us went two years ago and bought tickets on the street. I want to go again this year but really don't know where to buy tickets.. Stub Hub? There have been some on here for sale but not at a price I am willing to pay. There should be a way to get into practice rounds without taking a second mortgage on your home!!!

    I believe the movement towards that has begun. Slowly pushing older past champions out and inviting more high level ams and more global players. I’d be curious to see a larger field there and how that would affect scoring. Like 130

    It was all completely free, as it's put on by the Masters. Every week on this board someone is complaining that they're not showing SO and SO but instead showing too much SO and SO (cough, tiger, phil). And now you're complaining that they're showing too much (but, in weird way, not enough)? lol This NOT the definition of a "limited broadcast".



    Golf is completely different broadcast than any other major sport since the action is taking place all over the field of play at any one time.



    Here it is. They were in 3-some I believe, so I watch 12 different players at 1 time (two of the streams were featured groups, the other two were specific holes, so the players changed as the day went on).



    And this was on a Friday!

    Nah. I'm good, but I as I've mentioned, I also believe that the Master's is unnecessarily sanctified. It's a great, prestigious golf tournment on one of the world's most beautiful courses, but it isn't more than that and to me it certainly isn't better than the Open.

    I doubt LPGA players could hold some of the greens with the lower flights and less backspin than the men.




    I disagree. A bunch of old guys play the course most of the time. The greens are very receptive if you hit it to the right spot, plus they could slow the greens down a bit for the ladies if necessary.



    I bet if you went back and looked at the Masters winners over the years you would find the winner was generally one of the people who hit their irons the most accurately that year. Sure putting and short game are important, but if you don't place your approach shots good luck making putts.



    Move the ladies up to the member tees, slow the greens a bit and they would shoot well under par.
