I forgot to mention yesterday that you never know who is going to turn up, wearing a green jacket--emblematic of either a Masters winner of an Augusta member. I saw Lynn Swan, the great receiver, accepting congrats while wearing his green jacket outside the clubhouse. I assume he is a recent arrival among the membership of a club that doesn't exactly send out press releases when someone gets in.

        It will be interesting to see how they handle the first woman member here, whoever and whenever that is. Does she just show up at the Masters in a green jacket?
