Fall at The Masters or spring at The Masters? Hope you're ready for that debate this week as people get their first look at Augusta National in mid-November. The tournament has never been held in November so Thursday through Sunday will keep with the "tradition unlike any other" theme.
Many of you have wondered what the course will look like and whether it will compare with Augusta in springtime. Trevor Immelman, who won the 2008 Masters, told Golf Week in August that you'll be blown away by the spectacular fall views.
“In the spring, all the color is popping, and it’s very lush,” said Immelman, who also held off Woods en route to his green jacket in 2008. He has played Augusta National more than 20 times in October. “Now, in the fall, you’ve got great color, too. It’s just different colors. You have that fall orangey, reddish thing going.
“But it’s still breathtaking.”
