net prophet: favourites folder.
THE year's first, and finest major golf championship, the US Masters, begins at Augusta tomorrow week, and the wilful eccentricity of its infamous host club, again means that restrictions imposed on broadcasters allow TV coverage to only tell part of the story. Fortunately, the net fills the gap.
Pgatour.com - Official, unrivalled, essential; packed with authoritative personal histories and stats on the professional game.
Now features Tourcast - unique graphic-rich PGA Tour coverage, analysis of every hole, every golfer and every shot - though full details of Masters service unavailable at time of writing, and you do have to use this part of the site (looks like about a tenner a month).
Masters.org - The Augusta National official site, features virtual tour of the course, and a history of the tournament; promises Masters Radio, quizzes, polls, oncourse webcams and
remote-control visitor-operated cams during the action - presumably caucasian males will be given first dibs on having a go with that last one.
Augustachronicle.com - Masters coverage Southern-style, with entertaining columnists, and local colour. It's 70 per cent humidity over there at present. But, sure t'aint nuttn, apparently.
Tigerwoodsisgod.com - Hallelujah, let His putter shine. Semi-serious celebration of Tiger's divinity.
Golfbidder.com - The inspired and money-minded will find thousands of decent instant-buy deals on nearly-new clubs available from this
London-based warehouse. Trial period and
free next-day delivery included.
