Webb Simpson says favorite part of Augusta is 'the history'
Webb Simpson is ready for his second trip to Augusta, and he's bringing a boatload of memories from his first.
In his first Masters last year, Webb Simpson finished an respectable tied for 44, using the experience as a springboard to go and win the U.S. Open a few months later.
With a major under his belt, and a Masters invite secured for the next five years, a relaxed Simpson comes to Augusta looking to do some damage in 2013.
Augusta has a lot of doglegs left and the greens are lightning fast. I'm going to work on my putting speed and chipping.
Then on what the best part of playing at Augusta is:
It's the history. Amen Corner, the back nine. When you walk the fairways It's unlike any other golf course. Everybody's familiar with Augusta. Even the 20-handicapper who plays once a month knows Augusta National.
Speaking as a 20-handicapper who plays more than once a month, I can confirm his statement about people knowing Augusta National.
