Bubba Better Watch His Back – The Masters Are Coming
Golf fans, your season is starting! The 2013 Masters Tournament will be held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta (duh), Georgia from April 8 (practice rounds) to April 14. Will 2012 winner Bubba Watson (yes, that’s his name) be able to hold onto the green jacket (and that $1.44 million dollar winner payout), or will a past champion take the reins? Invited players include Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Ben Crenshaw, and Phil Mickelson, so we’d say that Bubba better put on his game face.

The first of the four majors golf championships (the U.S. Open, Open Championship, and PGA Championship being the other three), the Masters typically has the smallest field and is an invitation-only event (exclusive!). It’s the only one of the majors to be held at the same place every single year. Fun facts about Augusta National Golf Club: it was formerly a plant nursery, and each hole on the course is named after a piece of flora from the course. Holes include Tea Olive (1), Magnolia (5), Azalea (13), and Holly (18).
