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.
