The Masters begins Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club.  The course is probably the most beautiful in the country, and the tournament is the biggest of the four majors.  Augusta National has the most exclusive membership of any country club, and the tournament is treated with that level of reverence.

With that said, sports humorist Jeff Wozer found some surprising things about the course and the tournament.

  • Robert Mueller has proof of Russian meddling with Tiger Wood’s back.
    Players who display proof of a signed golf card at any local Winn Dixie receive 10% off on Swanson frozen dinners.
    Public restrooms feature stacks of old wrestling magazines.
    Vatican is suing Augusta for trademark rights to Amen Corner.
    Caddies can now jab disruptive fans in the necks with golf pencils.
    To offset travel costs Phil Mickelson sells stolen Augusta range balls on eBay.
    Following a two-day Metamucil bender Fred Couples was found Wednesday morning naked in Rae’s Creek.
    This year’s winner will get to choose between a green jacket or a $50 Red Lobster gift card.
    Younger tour members are petitioning Augusta officials to switch from green jackets to green board shorts.
