I received an e-mail from the Credentials Committee at Augusta National today. In said e-mail they kindly informed me that the random selection process for the 2015 Practice Rounds tickets had been completed. They further said they regretted to inform me that my application was not selected for tickets. Drat! I knew I should have told them I had a golf journal and enclosed this picture in my application.
I'll know better next year. I see no reason not to embellish my application a little. It never hurts to stand out in the minds of the folks at the Masters tournament. Even though that look on my brothers face might make them second guess allowing us on the grounds.
I cheered myself up by getting out my Masters tumbler and making a pumpkin iced coffee with dizzy three espresso vodka and torani coffee syrup.
Best decision I made all day.
Someone asked about how I make cold brewed coffee a while back. It's a breeze. Take 1 part coarsely ground coffee and 4 parts water (1/2 cup grounds + 2 cups water will give you 1 1/2 cups of cold brew) put it in a french press coffee maker and stick it in the refrigerator overnight. Press it. If you want, you can strain it through a filter as well. Pour over ice and add milk and whatever else you like in your iced coffee. I have a tray of coffee iced cubes in the freezer downstairs but I forgot about them in my haste! Great way to used leftover regular coffee and it keeps your iced coffee from tasting even one bit watered down.
