Re: TD 290 - 2016 Masters Tournament

Well, it was an exciting first day here at the Masters. Rusty's in the Club and AgentSeto ruled took advantage of nice weather conditions today to score low, nailing some big birdie putts to share the lead. After a shaky start, ChexMix bounced back nicely on the back nine. As for SBurrus, he pulled ...

Re: TD 290 - 2016 Masters Tournament

Alright, the deadline to enter has passed and it is time to begin this year's Masters TD tournament. :)

There are a total of 24 players this year. At least 12 will make the CUT. Unfortunately the usual weekend surge of entries did not happen.

Now on to the action.

Re: Wednesday, March 9, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had an Instaget in FJ, mainly by being such big fan of Olympics history. The first Winter Olympic Games in 1924 was held in Chamonix, France. From what I've read Chamonix is in the shadow of Mount Blanc.
