I just got some forged Srixon irons with Nippon NS Pro shafts. I also ordered some X100 shafts and will do some comparisons to see which I prefer.

Looking to get some quality range time in tonight.

Anyone ever been to The Masters? Worth it? Selected in the ticket raffle for the Wednesday practice round / Par 3 contest.

I was raised in Augusta and have been many times. A lot of the experience is being there for the actual tournament. Watching the scoreboards, listening to the roars, being part of the competition, etc. However, if you are a true golf fan, there is still plenty to enjoy about being at the course during the practice rounds. It's very cool to walk the grounds and experience the holes in person. It's such a unique sports experience, seeing the, relative, lack of sponsors, the minimal amount of modern technology, and the incredibly cheap food and drink prices. I think it's worth it to experience that.

Thanks. I'm not gonna lie, as soon as I got the email I started to plot how I was going to sell them. The more I think about the whole experience, especially some of the reasons you posted I thought of too, I don't think I can pass up the opportunity. I don't think I've come across one bad word about the tournament except for the long merchandise tent checkout line.

More importantly, it would make for a nice early bday present for my dad.

One benefit of the practice round vs. the tournament is ease of walking the course. With the tournament, there's more reason to stay in one place.

My youngest (7) at her Sunday lesson at the Club, I'd like to say chip off the old block, though I'd love a finish like that!!
