Augusta National Is Planning On Allowing (Limited) Patrons At The 2021 Masters

Little by little, we're drifting back to some degrees of normalcy. Whether that's right or wrong isn't really my place to say. But I can say without a doubt that the Masters is a better golf tournament when the patrons' roars echo all across the hallowed grounds of Augusta National Golf Club. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the ever living hell out of the 2020 edition. It was a great opportunity to see the course in the fall even if the course wasn't at its very best. But the absence of the quintessential Augusta roar was unmistakable. 

Now I have no idea just how much they're going to limit attendance for this thing. Maybe they'll play it by ear and decide as the Tournament creeps closer. But I can assure you this. No sporting venue is more capable of facilitating this type of thing in a safer and more efficient manner. They've probably had their own team of doctors and vaccinologists (if that's not a word, I just created it) working behind the scenes on some sort of proprietary magic potion that you can swig for the low low price of $1.50 that will banish the coco from your body forever. They might even inject it directly into the pimento cheese sammies. Who knows? I wouldn't put anything past the jackets. They work in mysterious ways.

All I can say is I am thrilled to know that the #roars will be back. Time to play their greatest hit.

PS I absolutely LOVE how the Masters social channels sign off at the end of every Masters and then just go completely dark until it's time to re-emerge. If there wasn't a pandemic ongoing requiring them to distribute news like today's, I genuinely don't think we would have seen them until April. The brand is strong.
