It's corny. It's racist. It's sexist. It's old-fashioned. It's too quiet. It's too self-important. It's traditional. It's ever-evolving. It's hushed. It's beautiful. It's the best golf anywhere. Amazing shots of blooming dogwood and azalea at Amen Corner. Audio overlay of birds chirping The Masters. Pause. On CBS. Pause. A tradition unlike any other. Fade to shot of Phil putting a kelly green sports jacket on Tiger in Butler Cabin. Just Kidding! It's all of the things I said and yet it's still great golf and wonderful television. Hootie and his Bubbas have figured out a formula that get people to tune in for the second weekend in April every year. I know I'll be watching. Probably so will you. Ken Ferry, Aaron Oberholser and Angel Cabrera are all tied at -1 in early play. Tiger and Phil tee off later. Thanks to flickr user kimberly for the photo.
