Email we received from Christo Ehlers - USM Winner 2013:
"2013 for four guys was the greatest Masters ever! A once in a lifetime opportunity.
So many things to do and see and I did them all not once but twice to make sure I would never forget anything! It is truly a special place - I saw grown men cry when walking in. Even just sitting eating a Pimento sandwich becomes very special if you look around and see where you are.
Off to the first tee to see the three greatest golfers - Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer - does it get any better than that? Yes - it does! Seeing the top golfers up close and personal is one of the best moments ever and one I will never forget.
One of my best moments at this year`s Masters has to be standing in the rain, soaking wet from head to toe, and seeing Adam Scott making his birdie putt on the 18th to take the clubhouse lead - and then seeing Angel Cabrera walking up the 18th fairway with his arm around his son (caddy for Angel). Making that great birdie putt to force the play-off - man, it was a great experience.
It is a very special competition De La Salle Holy Cross College runs, and one that is a great privilege to have won.
As they say at the main gate when walking in:
Guard: ‘Good Morning Sir and welcome to the Masters!!!!”
