    Won The Master's ticket lottery this morning. I was selected for two tickets for Sunday April 8th.

    This is going to be fun.

    Don't break the Sabbath, Tick. It's not worth it.

    Well, you won't get to see Bones caddy for Phil at next year's Masters. The two announced their breakup today after 25 years working together.

    I didn't have to worry about that anyways. My tickets are for the final round.

    Wow that is truly hitting the lottery. Final Round! What state did you apply from? The only time I ever won tickets is when I sent in the forms from Hawaii, while staying there.

    No.

    Are you still playing pretty regularly? I wonder what your cap is these days. I remember the days when you and DT were playing a ton and watching your scores drop into the 80s and then low 80s.

    One of those seats right behind the 12th tee would be a nice place to sit. You could see the approach on 11, all of 12 and the tee shot on 13.

    Congrats Tick! I got to see those practice rounds a couple of years ago and it was an amazing time. A final round would be awesome. Lots of pimento sandwiches!

    Going back to school at BYU-I has killed my golf game. I went from 6-8 rounds a month to maybe two rounds every three months now. I got down to a 7 HDCP, but I am an 11.7 right now. I'll be honest...I'm not mentally strong enough to play to a 7. I lost confidence in my game and I went from the low 80's to the mid 90's pretty quick.

    Sometime in 2019 it should pick right back up. Maybe.

    School is good, but golf is also good. Thanks for the update.

    My Son played in the Utah Amateur played at Odgen CC this past Monday and Tuesday. He didn't play all that well (81/83) but he did have the moment of a lifetime when he holed it from 219. He said when it left the club it felt really good, and was right on line.... and he yelled at the ball "get in the hole." There were some tournament officials standing off the back of the green, and when he walked up a man pointing to the hole said, "don't bother looking for your ball - it's right in there"

    USGA and RA finally decided that allowing idiots with a DVR and phone to act as rules officials was not a good way to run a sport (sorry about that major you lost, Lexi). Also several other common sense fixes.

    Though it will never happen I wish OBs would be treated like lateral hazards. It is how many weekend hackers already play and would help to speed up play

    Yesterday was Mothers day so we went to my moms house for the family shindig. They live on a private country club course, right off a green, and there was ZERO action on the course. We were there for four hours and no one played through on the nicest day of the year so far.

    Lots of spring wildlife on the course this week. Ducklings, goslings, a billion rabbits, and this little guy:

    I always put requests in for the max of everything allowable. Last year was the first year I hit. I've been submitting for as long as they have been doing it.

    100% random. I just happened to get 2 tickets for Sunday.

    Yep. And it happened to be in a year when Tiger was healthy and playing well leading up to it.

    I got crazy money for them, and I probably left cash on the table.
