Masters Coverage at Armchair Golf

(Pocketwiley/Flickr)

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the Masters. So while I keep an eye on the Zurich Classic and Shell Houston Open, I’m going to kick off my Masters coverage tomorrow. Here’s some of what’s ahead.

Q&A: SI’s Jim Gorant on the Masters

Jim is the author of FANTATIC: 10 Things All Sports Fans Should Do Before They Die. One of those things is trekking to Augusta National for the Masters.

The Last Surviving Player from the Inaugural Masters

I’ll have a piece on Errie Ball, who I talked to early this year. Errie, 97 years young, was a friend of Bobby Jones and played in the first Masters.

50-year Anniversary of Arnie’s First Masters Victory

Last fall I talked to one of the two men who tied for second in the 1958 Masters, the first of Arnold’s four Green Jackets. I’ll tell you what Fred Hawkins said and revisit the controversy surrounding that Masters.

First Sunday in April: The Masters
A preview of a new Masters book, a collection of stories from players and golf writers.

My First Masters
I’ll blog about my trip to the Masters for the Monday practice round. I’m going with John Coyne, the author of The Caddie Who Knew Ben Hogan and The Caddie Who Played with Hickory, due out in late April.

A Conversation with Mark Frost
I’ll have an interview with the author of The Match and The Greatest Game Ever Played. I had an enjoyable talk with Mark a few weeks ago about The Match (which, I learned, will be made into a documentary) and other golf subjects. The timing is a little uncertain, but I’ll probably have this interview for you soon after the Masters.

Hi there I'm a Master of marketing Student at the Australian National University (Canberra) I love golf as well and have been here just for one month, I have found kind of hard to get info about where to play, clubs memberships, Green Fees and stuff like that related to golf so I decided to create my own blog http://golfisgolf.blogspot.com/ but I'm new at this.
Since I found your blog at the http://www.worldgolf.com I was wondering if you would mind giving me some advices about how to make my blog really work?
Thanks a lot and great job u'r doing there.

I can't wait to hear what you have to say about your trip to the Master's. I am supremely jealous of your pending trip.
