Spring has sprung in Augusta! And before you ask how I know, let me assure you it’s not because the pollen arrived. Although that is usually an unwelcomed sign that warmer days lie ahead and it’s golf season in our area.

This issue is jam-packed with golf and I am fortunate that I have a stable of seasoned golf writers that craft the stories. John Boyette, sports editor for The Augusta Chronicle, has written a feature on 2018 Masters Champion Patrick Reed and his roots in Augusta.
