This year, as in previous years, there is only very limited coverage for those who don't want to pay Sky lots of money. I shall be up late on BBC2 watching the meagre pickings that are left from pay per view.
Paul Berry - a keen golfer himself - set me off on the trail of some geographical connections with his excellent blog post on his DevonGeography blog which explores the importance of the guides to the greens that the caddies all carry to help the players with their approach shots and putting. It's a reminder of the cartographic nature of these resources, and how golfers (like walkers) need to place their faith in the maps. At the Masters, these books are not allowed to be used, so golfers have to navigate using their own experience, and that of their caddies perhaps.In 'The Daily Telegraph' on Friday this week, there was a feature on the Masters, which I took out of thestaff room copy. It was interesting as it was exploring the impact of the pandemic on the economy of Augusta, and also the contrast between the glory of the golf course and the rest of Augusta, which has apparently been called 'disgusta'.
