Masters Memories and Memorabilia

As avid golfers most are chomping at the bit to get out on the golf courses here in Ottawa area. Many of us have returned from places like Myrtle Beach and low and behold it still feels like winter. We’re aching to test out our new driver and irons. Heck we’d be happy with practicing putting outside.

For most next week marks the start of spring as the first Major “The Masters” starts next Thursday April 11th. There’s Amen Corner, Rae’s Creek, Hogan Bridge, Nelson Bridge and the Sarazen Bridge.  Azaleas in bloom with fairways and greens like no other golf course in the world and of course golfers battling it out for the elusive green jacket.

Ever year since they’ve made tickets available online I’ve applied like countless other avid golfers. Still haven’t had the luck and won. I know eventually it will happen as my birthday (April 13th) usually falls around the Masters.

Stumble on to a couple of interesting Masters related websites recently. Say you’re not able to attend the Masters this year. Well the folks at MMO Golf will be your very own personal shopping for Masters Merchandise. Want a 2013 Masters Embroidered Golf Pin Flag. MMO Golf will purchase it for you because they have access to Augusta during the week of the Masters and that’s the only way to get merchandise. Unless your actually there. Just browsing their site there’s a host of things to pre-order for the golfer in your life.

The Golf Auction site is another really cool site for those looking for golf memorabilia. They’re an auction house and they are having a 1000 lot auction during Masters Week. Amazing memorabilia like a Bubba Watson Signed 2012 Masters Pin Flag. Looking for a 1939 Masters Tournament Clubhouse Pinback Badge - Issued to Bobby Jones Atlanta Neighbor The Golf Auction has one for auction. Rare stuff too like a 1963 Masters Final Round Final Scores DisplayCard (Jack Nicklaus Victory).

Browse the sites for some Masters Memories and memorabilia.
