2017 Masters Report – Day 1
April 3, 2017
We got into town late Saturday night, and I played 18 holes on Sunday with Zack Johnson and his coach Mike Bender. Zack and I played a match and I actually beat him by a few. The course was set up really hard — lots of pins were in really difficult spots. It was good to see the course in that condition.
Monday morning, I played the back 9 with Russell Knox and Brian Stuard. Unfortunately, weather came in in the afternoon and we didn’t get to play much.
I think what surprised me most about the course is the proximity of the patrons to the action on a lot of the tee boxes. They are really close.
We’ll see how the course changes this week as we go along and will keep an eye on the weather with some storms forecasted for Wednesday afternoon.
