Publisher Notes: November 2020

When we began to prepare for this issue in the fall of 2019, no one could have forseen the changes that 2020 would bring.

Like everyone, we assumed the 86th annual Masters Tournament would be held in April like always. In early March, our Tournament Guide was printed and shipped to our office. We certainly could have never imagined a November Masters due to a highly contagious virus. But here we are.

After months of uncertainty, the Masters Tournament will be held on the sacred grounds of Augusta National Golf Club. Which means, we will finally get to publish our guide in addition to portions of our original April issue.

The pink hues of the grounds’ famous azaleas won’t be the only noticable change viewers will see when they tune in to watch CBS’ coverage. Large crowds of patrons donning signature Masters green will also be absent.

Although, the tournament looks different this year, we are truly grateful the game is being played. There is no doubt the 2020 Masters Tournament will be a memorable one regardless of who wins the coveted green jacket.
