Receiving your Masters invitation in the mail is "priceless," says Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, voicing an opinion that is no doubt unanimous.
The final match of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship signals the end of the West Coast Swing. Next up is the cross-country trek to the Florida Swing – which marks the unofficial beginning of the run-up to the Masters.
And make no mistake, the season's first major is already on an awful lot of minds, even now, seven weeks away. Every player knows when he qualifies for Augusta National. But never does the Masters feel more real than when your official invitation arrives in the mail.
Just the other day, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain tweeted out a photo of his invitation, with this caption: "Opening your mail box and finding this #priceless"
I'm posting this in case you've never seen an actual Masters invitation. My favorite part is down in the lower left-hand corner, where it says RSVP. What would it take to RSVP no? Yeah, I can't think of anything, either.
