Stories From Augusta

Carl Jackson is as much a part of The Masters as green jackets and slippery greens.  He’s been on Ben Crenshaw’s bag for 35 years and caddied in his fiftieth Masters this year.  Crenshaw and Jackson have a special relationship.  Read their story.

The hills of Augusta seemed unusually bright the past two days.  It may be because Amy Mickelson has brought her bright and ever-present smile back to The Masters this week.  She was once again following Phil and is thrilled to be back at a place that means so much to both of them.  Check it out.

With all the continued trouble in Japan amateur Hideki Matsuyama thought about not attending in this year’s Masters.  He changed his mind and decided to compete in the hopes that it may lift the spirits of some of those back in his homeland.  I think he was right.  He was the only amateur to make the cut and the 19 year old will be in Butler Cabin when they hand the champion his green jacket.  Good things can still happen even in the darkest of times.  Read his story.
