00:00
Right guys, Mark Crossfield here, welcome y'all.
00:03
We're talking Masters patrons, welcome to The Waggle.
00:07
Let's talk to you a little bit about what happens
00:09
when you start being Augusta patron stylie.
00:13
(upbeat rock music)
00:18
So as a patron at Augusta National
00:20
there are many confusing rules.
00:22
The first one is you're not allowed to run.
00:24
That one gets me.
00:25
I was trying to get across a crossway on one of the holes
00:29
and I could see it was closing so I started to run.
00:31
Am I now not a patron for those few seconds
00:33
when I'm starting to run?
00:35
Also does the running rule cross over
00:37
to the players as well?
00:39
(bright upbeat music)
00:44
(golf club thwacking)
00:48
It's just all too confusing for me.
00:51
So as a patron you're not allowed, seriously not allowed,
00:54
to take cell phones into Augusta National.
00:56
It's one of the strictest things they look for,
00:58
through your bags, no cell phones.
01:00
Now look my relationship with my cell phone
01:03
must be different to others.
01:04
You're allowed to get stinking drunk on four dollar beers,
01:08
and there are people getting stinking drunk
01:11
on four dollar beers, shouting out, heckling.
01:15
(Alan grunts)
01:16
Give me, just give me a fill!
01:18
Now my relationship with alcohol-stroke-phones
01:21
must be different because I would just be sit there
01:24
quietly texting, and tweeting, and instagraming,
01:27
where there are people out there buying cheap beer,
01:29
getting as drunk as they can.
01:32
And that's a patron.
01:34
There you go guys, I've been a patron.
01:36
Next episode check out what happens
01:38
when I
01:40
hit the gift shop.
01:42
(upbeat rock music)
01:43
