Attending any round of the Masters is truly an unbelievable experience for a rabid golf fan like myself, and I feel that the Wednesday practice round and par 3 contest is one of the more special days of Masters week (I also attended the Wednesday practice round in 1999). Not only can you wander the course and shoot pictures at will (you can’t bring your camera in on any of the tournament days), the par 3 contest offers the opportunity to see many past and present players who may not be playing in the tournament, in the intimate setting that is the Augusta National Par 3 course.
I shot a bunch of photos of the Wednesday practice round and par 3 contest and wanted to share them with you here. If you’ve never been to Augusta National, obviously I recommend going if you ever get the chance. Until that happens I hope these photos give you a sense of what it’s like to wander the grounds of one of the most famous major golf tournament venues in the world. If you’ve been to the Masters you know what I’m talking about, and I hope these photos can be a reminder of what a special place Augusta National Golf Club is.
Note: I also shot several videos, look for those to be posted shortly.
