Scott Michaux of the Augusta Chronicle wrote a fantastic piece Tuesday about John Derr, a man who has attended 69 Masters tournaments as a patron or journalist.
In it Derr talks about the time he turned down a round at Augusta with President Eisenhower and all the crazy tournaments he's covered, starting with the first in 1935.
Then he talked about the time he met Albert Einstein, here's the account from the Augusta Chronicle:
“Mr. Einstein, do you play golf?” Derr asked.
“No, no,” Einstein said. “Tried it once. Too complicated. I quit.”
“So if Einstein said it was too complicated, what the hell are we doing looking at it?” Derr said.
The entire article is awesome, but that part really jumped out at me. Really, if Einstein thought it was too complicated, what exactly are we doing?
