Masters week is a favorite of mine every year for a couple of reasons; it's my favorite golf event of the year, and it means that the golf season in New England is upon us.
From the par 3 contest, to the inclusion of amateurs and past champions, the Masters really is "A tradition unlike any other".
I will be pulling for my boy Keegan who will be playing in his 2nd Masters. Keegan grew up in my home town, and I worked at the course in Vermont where his father was the head golf pro. I played a lot of golf with Keegan when he was a scrawny young kid (giving him 3 strokes a side), and it's pretty cool to see him where he is today having been a part of where he came from.
If Keegan doesn't pull it off (I like his chances, btw) I'll be hoping Rory pulls it off to take back the #1 ranking from Tiger.
