Augusta Practice Outing for Phil, Dustin and Keegan

Keegan Bradley
REGULAR PRACTICE-ROUND BUDDIES of Phil Mickelson’s, Dustin Johnson and Keegan Bradley surely benefited from a Tuesday practice round at Augusta National Golf Club with Lefty, a three-time Masters champion. But especially Bradley, who will be making his first Masters appearance in a few weeks.

On Tuesday, Keegan tweeted:

“Great day at Augusta with @DJohnsonPGA and Phil. I have a lot more to learn about Augusta National. Really great day #worktodo”

Johnson will be making his fourth consecutive start at the Masters. His best finish was a T30 in 2009. Phil hasn’t missed a Masters since 1994. In addition to his three wins, Mickelson has a quartet of third-place finishes. He really likes the place.

I hope Keegan has the spitting reflex completely under control before he rolls down Magnolia Lane. The Masters men will not go for that. They are quite particular about, well, everything.

I hope Keegan does well. He seems to be one of those hot or cold players. When he is on, he is practically unstoppable, but when his game wanes, he is way off.

I like him a lot as a golfer though. one of my favorite on the field.


PS. I know for a very long time golf was for elitist blue bloods, but when I player had played 18 hole and has cotton mouth, i don't think spitting is that big of a deal. But everyone is allowed to believe what they want.
