The times, they are a-changing. This weekend marked the third playing of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. It marked the arrival of Netflix cameras on property for Masters Week. And it marked the drop of a YouTube video unlike any other: Dude Perfect’s “All Sports Golf Battle at the Masters.” That video’s existence is indicative of how some things are changing at Augusta — while other things are exactly the same.
If you haven’t yet seen the video for yourself, the voice of Jim Nantz provides introduction (“Hello friends” and all!) before a sixsome (the aforementioned five plus Bryson DeChambeau) tees off No. 11 at Augusta National. But instead of clubs, their golf bags are filled with a variety of alternative sporting equipment. Over the next 11 minutes they play Nos. 11-13 using frisbees, baseball bats, pool cues and more, with one rule: Once you use an implement, you can’t use it again.
