David Toms’s controversial words in 2006 still resonate with golfers all these years later.
“To me, it’s still a place where the players walk around on egg shells, not knowing if they are in the right place,” Toms said during a conference call. “They’re worried about their cell phone being on, having to stop by the hut on the way in to scan your ticket, making sure you only have one parking pass and somebody else doesn’t get in there.
“It’s the only place all year where the players don’t feel like they’re the most important thing there,” Toms said. “That’s the way I see it, and I don’t think I’m the single opinion on that.”
It’s a feeling contestants at the Masters still can relate to. There are rules at Augusta National and they must be obeyed – or else.
