Who cares about merchandise sales? That for the Jr fans of the world who have nothing else to live for.How bout a story about young Rory McIlroy? The kid is tearing it up. How bout a story about Jason day? Maybe K.J. Choi?

Did you happen to notice Slapshot and Helen how many of the lawn chairs looked exactly the same at the masters? If they are selling those to patrons then these cats really have their marketing muscles flexed. Imagine telling everyone " look here is the physical chair i bought at an event i bought a ticket for so i could sit and watch it" Brilliant !! The NHL,NFL,NBA,and MLB should take notes.Gut the arenas sell season "squares" and then sell the poor fan a seat to sit in.Brilliant. ;-)

I'm not tryin' to scoreboard here, Harry, but when I was at the Masters in '96 it was pretty evident they weren't runnin' the damn thing as a community service. They rent or sell everything there to enhance the "patron" experience. Including those chairs.

The pimento cheese sandwich wrappers and the beer cups are green so that if doesn't make the trash can, the garbage won't get picked up on TV. They've got it all covered.
