Ode to the Masters
If you receive this newsletter then you probably know of my Masters obsession. I look forward to the tournament each year, whether that anticipation is rational or not. I have the Riesling, I’ve barricaded myself into my apartment like Verne Lundquist, I just need some Jim Nantz platitudes about tradition and I’m ready to go.
I wrote a piece about my personal Masters preparations for Michael Williams’s new site ACL Golf. You can read the story here. Make sure to check out his site, which is also about travel, tailoring and other good topics. I wrote another story about the mystique of Augusta for the old ACL in the innocent year 2015.
A couple years ago I wrote something for The Masters site itself, which is wild. And it’s wilder still that this photo of Michael and me is still on the Masters website. Somewhere on the internet is my interview on the official Masters podcast which just felt downright surreal then and even more so now.
The Masters always feels like the beginning of Spring. Hopefully we’re all heading into a healthier and happier season, which is something worth celebrating. Salut!
