the Masters | 4 P.M., Thursday-Friday TV: Espn: Wagner's eating up Augusta experience

There are 1 comment on the story from Apr 8, 2008, titled the Masters | 4 P.M., Thursday-Friday TV: Espn: Wagner's eating up Augusta experience. In it, reports that:

“He wasn't in the mood to hear it.”

When Johnson Wagner wasn't smiling Monday -- and there weren't many moments -- he was stuffing down pimento cheese sandwiches or trying to skip his golf ball across the pond on Augusta National's 16th hole or wondering where between Houston and Augusta his RV might be.

As the last man to qualify for the Masters, Johnson's Monday felt like an adrenaline-laced extension of Sunday, when the Charlotte resident won the Shell Houston Open by two strokes for his first PGA Tour victory.

Wagner, 28, and his wife, Katie, flew on a private jet Sunday to Augusta, where his management group had a room for him in a house it rented. He stayed up deep into the evening, slept a little and spent Monday at Augusta National, where seemingly everybody suddenly knew his name. Read more

I am lucky enough to work for Johnsons teacher, Bobby Heins and his best friend Nick Maselli at Old Oaks in Purchase, New York. Bobby Heins is the true meaning of Golf Professional. Not only is he a great player and teacher but he is also a terrific man who cares about everyone who works for him. He and his wife Shelly are wonderful people and I can't imagine a greater thrill than the one they had when Johnson got it home. Bobby and Nick drove to Augusta first thing Monday morning...can it get any better than that? Congrats all the way around.
