Yes, More Masters Stuff: My Trip to Augusta, My Stuff, and My Green Jacket

There has been a pretty consistent theme this week: The Masters.  I was lucky enough to score a pass for Wednesday, and really enjoyed it.  Each time I head over for a round, it’s like experiencing the beauty of Augusta National for the first time.  I get giddy.  The place is what I would consider Heaven.  This was my first time at The Masters on a Wednesday, so I got to see some of the Par 3 Tournament.  What a treat.  It’s like watching a cozy version of the original tournament, but with a much more casual feel.  There isn’t much walking around on the Par 3 course, as we were all packed in pretty tight.  I brought in my little handheld camera to take some shots:

Golf cart crossing…at Augusta National…yeah right.

Very impressed with the Smathers & Branson belts.  My two year old green one doesn’t need to be replaced yet, but it’s nice to know that I’ll have the opportunity when the time comes.  The melon option is awesome.

18th fairway.  One of the hardest approach shots in golf.

15, another next-to-impossible approach.

16.  A thing of beauty.

Jimenez.  Cigar in tow.

The prices stay pretty consistent…

I couldn’t resist.

The Par-3 tournament.  A lot of sitters.  That seemed to be the theme – find a place and park.

We all know that the Masters logo is as desirable as any logo out there.  The souvenir tents were packed with good stuff, and I took full advantage.  This haul was less than half of what I brought home…lots of friends wanted something…and they got it.

From top left:

DOF glasses.  Super awesome.
Blue hat.  Something different.
Dated white hat.  Gotta keep the streak alive.
Smathers & Branson front pocket wallet.  No brainer.
Peter Millar polo.  Classic style with a pocket.


While this might not be 100% Masters related, it was a recent thrift store find that I have been looking for for quite some time.  A green blazer:

I’m not planning on adding a Masters patch, I do wear this quite a bit.  The green is perfect; it is essentially a substitute for a blue blazer.  It looks great with any oxford, khakis, or jeans.  I wear it quite a bit, as a nod to a classic style that you don’t see too often.

What’s even better, it is from one of my all-time favorite stores: Luden’s (RIP).

 So what do you think so far?  Did anyone get anything good from The Masters?

    Alot of respect for the fact that they keep the food prices in a normal range. It would be easy for them to charge 4 to 5 times as much as they do for that stuff.

    I was there on Wednesday also, a stunningly nice day. I hope you had one of the Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches though. There aren’t many better uses of $2.
