In the spirit of the Masters being played in Augusta Georgia this week, Rob Thompson has a fascinating post looking at Augusta National Golf Club from ‘Inside the Ropes’.

I spoke with him about what makes the course great, what surprised him and why it might contain the best back-to-back holes in the world.
