After departing London and arriving in Atlanta Airport, the #YGTMasters team have made their way to Augusta. The course itself, Augusta National is about a 20 minute drive from our humble abode and it couldn’t be easier to find...which is great as mself, YGT Rory, and Mark Crossfield, Ask Golf Guru, have been charged with a special task; attending all three practice days at The Masters in order to attempt to bring to life in some way, what it is really like to make that bucketlist, once in a lifetime trip to the greatest show in golf.
All eyes are on Rory McIlroy heading into the tournament and understandably so. He’s gunning for the career grandslam which is a feat only a handful of the game’s greatest players have ever achieved. And while we were lucky to see Rory hit a few shots including a booming drive up the 18th – a seriously tight tee shot by the way – as well as Tiger working on his much scrutinised short game – absolutely no yips to report in case you’re interested – the undoubted star of the show was the course itself; Augusta National.
