For 2009 Masters Tickets the questions remain the same. Is Augusta too tough? Does it allow anyone to charge to the front of the pack? Even Tiger Woods has stated that he does not expect low scores at Augusta National. Golf fans will be looking to see if changes made to the course will have an impact on the 2009 Masters.
Augusta National has changed to a shorter course. But that’s not saying much. It’s a matter of minor adjustments not major revamps. Hole 7, long the source of discussion, now extends to 450 yards, a daunting challenge to the entire pack. The Masters has become simply a war of wills, a challenge to survive. Is that a bad thing? I don’t believe so. I think a supreme champion should be able to handle any type of adversity, maybe not prevailing, but certainly being among the top performers. The 2009 Masters is going to be just one of those challenges.
