Since the departure of Edward VIII from the throne of England in 1936, the Royal Family has displayed little interest in golf. Once the Duke of Edinburg was attending a charity tournament in which Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer were playing and was asked whether he had ever seen the great twosome play before. His reply put the Royal attitude to golf firmly in perspective.

“Oh yes,” said the Duke, “I’ve often seen them on television when I’ve been waiting for something else to come on.”

To celebrate the delayed US Masters this week. The building of Augusta National almost never happened, and it remained an economic burden through World War II: Founded at the beginning of the Great Depression, the original business plan called for 1,800 members, but when the first Masters was held in 1934, the club only had 76 paying members. The club couldn't afford to pay the first winner, Horton Smith, or any of the top finishers until 17 members chipped in for the purse. In 1946, the delivery of the winner's plaque to Herman Keiser was delayed to give time for the club and its members to pay for the silver.
