Conduct at the Masters

I know many of you will enjoy the masters on television. But if you’re lucky enough to see it in person, know this: course and the conduct are a cut above.

They’re here. They made it to the Masters. And they’re missing something. 

“The cell phone, I think the Masters is behind the times. Every other golf tournament allows them to be brought in.”
However, this is not every other golf tournament.  

“This is probably the best run tournament in the world. No cell phones, no outbursts, nobody acting up. It’s a very pleasant place to be.” 

Pleasant on purpose. You see it the moment you look at the pairings sheet. A quote from Bobby Jones about the importance of etiquette. 

“I think it’s fabulous, honestly. This is the Super Bowl of golf, so that’s the greatest thing.”
Cell phones are prohibited. 

“I love it. My wife can’t get ahold of me. I’m in Heaven.”
Hooting and hollering are just not done here. 

“In da hole, that detracts as far as I’m concerned.”

“I think that it’s the perfect thing to take the experience all in and to be able to just be content with your surroundings and the experience here.” 

And patron decorum is not something you have to teach out here. No, the chairman of Augusta National will tell you he thinks people understand how to act when they arrive. 

Fred Ridley says, “There’s something about Augusta National when someone walks through the gates, they know that it’s a place of respect and beauty, and honoring the traditions and values of the game. It’s something I don’t think and I certainly hope never happens.” 

“I think that it’s the perfect thing to take the experience all in and to be able to just be content with your surroundings and the experience here.” 

Yes, just be content. And be careful. You wouldn’t want to make your first Masters visit your last. 

“Well, it’s still early. First beer of the day so we’ll see how that works out.”
