RE: The Masters Golf Tournament
I used to when I was younger. I really got into it for a few years and could shoot (truthfully) in the mid 80's. Never took any lessons and just picked it up and started playing. I enjoyed the courses and the fact that you could never master the game. But my passion for golf slowly faded and I sold all my clubs.

I do love watching The Masters as it is such a beautiful course with so much history behind it. I miss watching Tiger as he was (in his prime) amazing on that course.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

I haven’t played often in the last two years Weeping

When I have I can still get around the course in low to mid 80’s with the occasional high 70’s.

Live coverage.

I don't play golf, but it's the only sport I watch regularly on TV. I find it very relaxing to watch.

Cool

I used to play a lot of golf, although I was never any good at it. My best 18-hole score was 99, and that was on a relatively short course. On a good day, I could chip and putt reasonably well, but my long shots might go 200 yards or 10 feet, and they could go in any direction (including straight up).

I have a mild interest in professional golf, but have never had any interest in watching it.

RE: The Masters Golf Tournament
I was a mid-to-low 80s player for years. Gave it up because it got to be too much of a hassle. Used to cover golf for two newspapers before I became a senior editor.

That’s really interesting, did you cover any PGA action on site?

Sure did. Covered the GHO for three years and a couple of local Florida events. It's a cakewalk.

I was a mid-to-low 90s player for years with the (very) occasional foray into the high 80s. Basically a bogie golfer. If I had a round without anything worse than a bogie, I was happy.

I haven't played much in the last 3 years as my time, energy, and money have been going to shotgun sports, primarily trap. But I still will have it on the TV as calming background when at the computer.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
