Jim Nantz on the 1's and 2's
THE HOTTEST DROP IN THE YEAR 2000
That's right, Golf Reddit coming through on this hallowed Masters week with a supercut of all the Nantz intros from day one. And wouldn't ya know that Nantz didn't intro the infamous "Hello, Friends" drop until 2000! "Hi Everybody" just doesn't hit the same.
Take it from a dude who literally died at The Masters...
AUGUSTA—"IT'S HEAVEN ON EARTH"
This story comes courtesy of Golf Digest—chronicling the story of Johnny Pruitt who had a heart attack near Amen Corner in 2018.

A modern legend.
After Day One...
We've got a tight race at the top of the leaderboard and VERY interesting to see no one in the top 3 had Justin Rose... there's hope for us all!
PRIZING NOTE: I can not see the contact info for anyone who joined, sooooo whoever wins this damn thing needs to DM us a screenshot of their winning picks and we'll get you hooked up with those TEN, yes TEN, unreleased polos.
