Anyone know if the Masters comittee commanded CBS always to say
"patrons" instead of "fans" during the Masters telecast? I've never
heard that word used so many times.
PS - Will someone pulleeezzzeee teach Bobby Clampett how to
pronounce the word "to"?
Great tournament this year! Had to love the Sunday back nine action!

I always thought a patron was someone who supported the arts or was
philanthropic. Perhaps Masters tickets are so costly that anyone forking
up the dough is regarded as a patron. Yeah, very pretentious but, aside
from the Masters' "kissing-up", I still enjoy Clampett and Venturi
