Publisher Notes: April 2019

 

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.

April means the Masters for Augusta and for us here at the magazine. We have spent months culling photos, reading content and selling ads. Countless hours have been spent scrutinizing what we will place on the pages for April.

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. Stephen Hale recaps the 2018 Masters Tournament in Day by Day, and provides our list of Ones to Watch and Not-so Dark Horses for 2019.

I probably sound like a broken record, but this is truly one of my favorite issues of the year! For one week, Augusta is on an international stage. This week is always full of surprises and I’m so thankful to have a front row seat!
