Drew Kittleson is Florida State University Softmore and the runner-up at the 2008 U.S. Amateur Championship is writing an online diary to chronicle his 2009 Masters Tournament experiences.
During the Masters, he will write daily on his experiences and performances in his initial showing at Augusta National Golf Club.
Here’s his first entry.
He didn’t have a very good first round shooting a rough 78 and he attributes it to overworking himself earlier in the week.
Although he had a much better second round (72) I’m sad to say we’ll see no more than two entries in the diary since Kittleson’s missed the cut.
But man, did you see his eagle performance on the 11th? His second shot consisted of a 200 yard 6-iron that bounced once and fell in the hole, to the eruption of the crowd.
Then it was a triple, bogey, par, eagle..
“Amen Corner got me,” Kittleson said. A small smile here. “But I got part of Amen Corner, too.”
I think this is a really great idea and a great way for fans to connect to the lesser know players (IE: anyone who’s not Tiger Woods. 🙂 ). I’d love to see more of this from other players and I’m truly curious what diary entry #2 will say.
I tried to find the video of his performance on the 11th but I guess he doesn’t have enough notoriety….
Ah well… Here’s another equally exciting video of Vijay Singh’s skip across the water ACE!
Can’t wait for more Masters 2009 action tomorrow!!
