But this year, even the weather conditions will play an important role, since the cold in Augusta, Georgia, will influence the play of the professionals, as well as the lack of public.
“Without a doubt it will be a very different Masters due to the fact that it is in November with the weather, the cold, the ball is not going to fly as much, the fairways are not going to run as much. There will not be the shouts of the public, the famous ‘rawrs’ “, exposed John sutcliffe, ESPN analyst and golf expert.
“There will be no fans, little press, only those that we are going to broadcast. Members can only invite their wives. Players can bring up to four guests and stop there, ”Sutcliffe said.
