Masters Monday Capsule: ‘Hello Friends!’


It’s Masters week, and for the first major of the year, we’re going to try something different here at Pro Golf Weekly. Each day we’ll be setting up a post that will act as a diary of sorts to capture and record the best Masters-related content of the day.

From headlines and links to photos and videos, we’ll update each day’s post with the best content as the day moves along. At the close of each day we’ll clean it up a bit with some formatting; create a stand-alone post or two using some of the content; and then publish it to our social channels.

With that, here’s our Masters Monday Capsule. (Most recent updates appear at the top.)
