Lunch - Pimento Cheese please...
After watching a host of the world’s very best take on the course today, I felt it only right that I experience a few of Augusta’s famous culinary delights from the Concession Stands which are found on the course. Now I won’t be the first to say this but it is important to say, the food and drink here is incredible value for money. Forget your football pie and a pint for £10, think fresh sandwiches (from $1.50) and (I hope my boss isn’t reading this) a beer for $3. On my plate today was a Masters must have, a Pimento Cheese. This sandwich is, for many Patrons, as synonymous with Augusta as the Green Jacket. I loved it. Probably a 9 out of 10. The one for me though is the Grilled Chicken. A slightly more expensive number at $3 but possibly the best snack I’ve had at a golfing event.
The Masters Buzz has started...
One thing I certainly got to experience and enjoy today was the Masters Buzz. This Buzz is generated by the Patrons. A rumour here, a sighting there, we all get into it.
“Tiger’s on the 4th hole”
“It’s Bubba’s year”
“Where’s Rory” – McIlroy obviously not me!
And even a gentle whisper, perhaps without a huge amount of conviction but one that most Patrons would like to see...”Tiger’s back...and he’ll win”
This really adds to the experience, there are so many things about this event which make it unique and I feel so lucky to be here and experiencing. For me, I wouldn’t change a thing, the tournament over delivers at every turn.
