#5 on Augusta National's Par 3 course

The fifth hole on Augusta National's par 3 course. The members and tour pros often play these as a warm up before their round. The most beautiful course I'd ever played, until about an hour later ... I missed a hole-in-one here by one inch. Hit an 8 iron 150 yards to 10 ft behind the hole, it backed up slowly ... slowly ... slowly ... OOOHHH!! Lipped out ...! What a memory.

27 holes, six miles on foot, nearly 1000 acres and every blade of grass looked exactly like these.  Never saw ONE weed. NOT ONE. Unbelievable.

  1. Jason, that’s an unbelievable experience. I’ve often asked myself how much would I pay to play? Everytime I throw an amount out there, my wife thinks I’ve lost my mind. What she doesn’t understand is that I would probably pay twice the amount I told her.

    Good job and congrats on your experience.


  2. Wow! What can I say, good for you Jason! One day for me……
