Alan Shipnuck writes about his 25 years covering the Masters. Alan Shipnuck, formerly of Sports Illustrated and, has launched a new website, the firepitcollective. This being Masters week, why not recall his quarter-century covering the major,

From Alan:

You never forget your first glimpse of Augusta National. Circa 1994 the press room was adjacent to the first fairway; I dropped my computer bag and speed-walked up the hill to the first tee. And there it was, a glorious expanse of green that stretched as far as the eye could see. I felt the same sense of awe as the first time I glimpsed the diamond at Candlestick Park as a little boy.

What it’s like to play Augusta National as a guest. For some, it takes a while to get comfortable. “The first hour, I kept thinking, I just hope I don’t get thrown out,” says one recent visitor. But he admits that’s on him because the staff and even the members were universally warm and welcoming.

“At some clubs, the members give off an attitude like, ‘WTF are you doing here?’ ” says another visitor. “At Augusta they know what ‘guest’ means.”

How’s the food? Quite good—steak, fish and the like. “It’s a simple, elegant menu,” says one guest. Another visitor recalls walking into the dining area one morning and saying, “Can I get something for breakfast?” The staffer on duty replied, “You may have anything you want!” There was no menu.

USGA: Phila Cricket to host 2024 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball. Phila Cricket’s Wissahickon course was scheduled to host the 2020 Four-Ball, until Covid shut down golf and most of the country.

The Four-Ball, set for May 25-29, will involve both courses: Wissahickon for match play and Militia Hill for stroke play.

Cricket is hosting its third USGA championship and its first since the 1910 U.S. Open. “The USGA’s return to Philadelphia Cricket Club after more than a century is noteworthy due to its deep roots in American golf history and as one of the founding member clubs of the Golf Association of Philadelphia,” said Bill McCarthy, director of the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship for the USGA.
