Most Memorable Experience at Masters Tournament

Philippe here from the On Point Events team, this time to talk about Masters and specifically just reflecting back on the past 16+ years and trying to find that one moment from the Masters that was just super memorable for me personally.

It would have to be 2012. That’s the year that Bubba Watson won his first green jacket. Its championship Sunday, probably about 1 or 2 pm. For whatever reason that year, we ended up with single spare clubhouse pass. For those of you who are not familiar with the Masters Golf Tournament and Augusta National, the clubhouse is located at the top of the 18th fairway and overlooks the entire course. Just super Iconic!

During the Tournament, Augusta National Members and their invited guests can sit outside on the Patio in what is known as the Clubhouse Terrace and enjoy food and drink. It is not uncommon to see an assortment of luminaries, including past players, CEO of major corporations, etc, separated from the general public by nothing more than a modest rope and a couple of security officers.

It was a Once in a Lifetime opportunity I simply could not give up. One of the first things I did when I got there was take the time to explore every nook and cranny of the clubhouse because it’s so iconic. I eventually made it up to the second floor where they had a really small bar with this super sweet and southern elderly lady mixing Peach Azaleas which is a must at the Masters. Clearly, I had to indulge in a couple of those all while taking in the view of the 18th fairway from the outside patio. Great memories!

To the right of the Clubhouse there is this massive 150+ year old Oak Tree which on Championship Sunday plays host to Jim Nantz from CBS who every year interviews the players as they come off the 18th hole after the final round. Probably the most surreal thing for me was having the opportunity to stand under that Oak tree no more than a few feet away from Jim Nantz and watch him interview players like Angel Cabrera, Zach Johnson and even Tiger Woods who that year I think was tied for 40th place. Just a super surreal experience and something I will never forget.
