In the morning, a tradition unlike any other will get underway on the finest fairways in the land. The world’s best golfers, KSR bloggers, and John Daly’s tour bus have all gathered in Augusta for the 2013 Masters. And while I’m salty Matt and Drew (two guys I could beat without woods in my bag) (challenge issued) didn’t drag me along to their Maxim/IZOD paradise, I will make the most of watching the year’s first major championship on TV here in Nashville.
What better way to make the most of it than by creating a Masters drinking game for us to play? Not everyone is a fan of golf, but most everyone is a fan of a good ole fashioned drinking game. As a huge fan of golf and a creator of many other successful drinking games, I feel I am highly qualified to create this game. I encourage all of you to play and as always, “drink responsibly.”
Take a Drink:
*If you see the color green on the screen. *JUST KIDDING*
*If Jim Nantz says “Hello friends” or “A tradition unlike any other, the Masters on CBS.”
*When you hear the words “Amen Corner,” “Rae’s Creek,” “Sarazen Bridge,” “Hogan Bridge, “or “Butler Cabin.”
*If they talk about Bubba Watson’s shot out of the trees on #10 last year during the playoff. If you see Bubba Watson cry, drink again.
*If they show Tiger’s chip on #16. You know, the one that rolled up the hill and back down the hill only to pause on the lip of the cup just long enough for the Nike logo to be seen? Yeah, this one. If you clicked on that link, drink. Because “IN YOUR LIFE have you ever seen anything like that?”
*If you see a replay of Louis Oosthuizen’s double eagle on #2 last year. They’ll show it, just hope you’re there to see it.
*If Jack Nicklaus’ “majors won” record is mentioned.
*Anytime a clip of Nicklaus’ 1986 Masters victory is shown. Be on the look out for the putt on #17 in which Verne exclaims “Maybe… YES SIR!!”
*If you see Angel Cabrera. Because I will. I’ll always hate him for beating Kenny Perry in a playoff.
*When they mention that they are bringing you commercial free coverage for 56 minutes out of every hour.
*When they mention the beautiful azaleas or dogwoods.
*If you hear the artificial bird chirping noise.
*When you wake up from the nap you will take after hearing these soothing bird noises for an extended period of time.
*Anytime Amy Mickelson is spotted. In fact, most guys have beautiful wives/girlfriends. Drink anytime the camera shows the spouse/girlfriend of a player. Drink again if they mention Tiger’s new girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn.
*If the 14 year old makes a birdie.
*If someone hits a par 5 in two. Take another drink if they make eagle. In fact, drink for all eagles.
*If you see a player playing a shot out of pine straw.
*Anytime a player hits a ball in the water.
*Anytime a player makes a double bogey or worse. Believe me. They want a drink, too.
*If you see a golfer in IZOD clothing.
*If Matt or Drew tweet about a Maxim model or retweet the IZOD twitter account. You already owe roughly 50 drinks to this rule.
