    Well, I'm finally headed to Augusta!  I know what you're thinking, you've worked in the golf industry for this long and you still haven't been?  I'll be there for rounds 3 and 4 and couldn't be more excited.

    For those who have been before, please feel free to provide any tips and tricks for taking it all in.  ie. When's the best time to hit the merch tent? Where's the best spot to post up for a few hours? etc.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mitch -- Enjoy! Will you be going in a Titleist capacity or purely on a personal level?

    I've never been, but several of my friends have gone and they have shared their "tips" -- there thoughts are summarised as follows:

    1. Try the Pimento Cheese Sandwich -- simply so that you can say that you "have been there, done that" ... if you like it, even better! But, they all to a person have told me that the chicken sandwich (?) is a much better choice.

    2. Pick out your spot for viewing early in the day -- and stick with it. Most of the people that went have all told me that they thought the best spot was to be around Amen Corner or near the green on 16. As they used to say, the Masters does not get going until the back nine on Sunday!

    3. Enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy some more.

    That is awesome Mitch! I have nothing to offer for tips or tricks as I have yet to make it out to Augusta myself.

    I am sure we will all be interested in hearing about your experience.

    Have a fantastic time.

    I keep losing the ticket lottery, so I have no tricks to offer you. Have a excellent time.

    Soooo jealous! I have been playing the Masters ticket lotto for years and have yet to be selected. Have fun and just soak it all in!

    Mitch, I'm even more jealous now. What a masters!!! Probably the best Sunday I've ever seen! You also were able to witness Tiger making one of the best comebacks in history! Hope you kept your ticket, that was a historic moment.
