Real life “Tin Cup” at the Masters

From NYTimes.com: A Bad Day on the Course Beats Any Day Pumping Gas

A week ago Steve Wilson was in his Mississippi gas station and convenience store preparing his customers’ favorite item: a hot-pressed roast beef po’ boy sandwich with gravy.

On Thursday, Wilson stepped onto the first tee at the Augusta National Golf Club with the two-time Masters champion Tom Watson and the Englishman Ian Poulter as partners. Wilson, 39, an amateur golfer and gas station owner who has been having recurring nightmares about a golf ball that refuses to go in the hole, is a Masters tournament rookie.

Great story.  What an experience it must be for an amateur to play the Masters in Augusta.
