The Masters in High Definition

I hope everyone is able to see the Masters in HD this year. As last year, the picture quality is absoluting stunning. A repeated comment that I hear from the players about Augusta is that television does not do the elevation changes and the mounding on the greens justice.

HD really makes the contours of the greens stand out, and allows the viewer to see the difficulty for themselves. Really amazing.

One complaint, however: why is footage from last years Masters not presented in HD? Or for that matter, highlights of other majors from last year that were presented in HD are not shown in HD this year. Strange, and unfortunate.

Finally, the widescreen really allows you to see how the holes fit together. For example, the camera that is looking over the 12 tee allows you to see the the huge open area to the right of the green, as well as the teebox of 13. Pretty cool.

By the way, I have caught 2 “patrons” picking their noses in the background behind the players. Yes, HD is that good:)
