I began to consider all the other ways Augusta tampers with the environment–the dyed blue water, the way they ice the azaleas in a warm year to make sure they don’t bloom before the television cameras arrive, the piped-in birdsong CBS has used to atone for the lack of actual flying creatures. Even the minor details reek of fanaticism the green sandwich wrappers, specially planned so the rogue escapees can be seen standing out against the green grass on TV … the tape that goes over the Coca-Cola logos at the concession stand in a move that is more about Augusta’s tremendous ego than any true anti-commercial instincts, since Bobby Jones made a killing in Coke as an investor.
These deceptions have no human toll. Media relations, on the other hand, have become significantly less cordial since the early days. The glorified cattle pen they placed me in on Friday for post-round interviews was the least of my concerns, because the threat of banishment is very real, and very constant. In 66, they booted the announcer Jack Whitaker for calling a construction of fans a mob the club prefers the term patrons. Gary McCord famously joked that the club used bikini wax on the greens, which led Tom Watson to rat hi am out. McCord hasn’t been back since, which is so petty it makes my head spin and there are smaller stories of journalists being kicked out for sending a text message steps outside the media centre a fate that befell Westwood one’s Charlie Rymer or players wives being detained in special buildings for having the audacity to take photos at the par-3 contest. SIs Alan Shipnuck was once banned for a year for following the champion into Butler Cabin for the final interview which is to say, doing his job as a feature writer.On my first day, I discovered that they did even trust us to walk to the media centre on our own, opting to drI veus by cart from the entrance instead and when I walked on a patch of grass to reach the cart, an employee yelled at me to stay on the paved path. Big Bedroom other is everywhere for the patrons, the list of rules and regulations is so extensI veas to be absurd, as Bill Pennington pointed out in The Latest York Times in 2013There is so much you cannot do at Augusta National it is a wonder the place was not named the Country Club of No.
