Don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve been waiting 365 days to hear Jimmy Nantz say “a tradition unlike any other” 192 times a day. Here at Outkick, we’ve started our own tradition with The Masters Drinking Game. Drink up!
Take one drink if the following happens:
Jim Nantz says “A tradition unlike any other”…..duh.
El Tigre’s “issues” this season are mentioned.
The announcers say the words “Magnolia Lane,” “Amen Corner,” “Butler Cabin,” or “Rae’s Creek.”
We’re told that Rory wrote a letter to Tiger when he was younger and Nike made a commercial out of it, which is actually really great.
The Masters’ theme song is played.
Nick Faldo starts reliving his glory days.
Jack Nicklaus‘ major wins record or Tiger breaking it is mentioned, or the announcers reference Jack’s recent comments that he doesn’t think Tiger will get back to his old self.
Did they just mention that Condoleezza Rice is a member or that there are now not one, but TWO female members of Augusta National? Drink.
A Tiger Woods’ highlight is shown.
Freddy Couples toys with our emotions and is initially “in the hunt,” or we are reminded that he had to share a dorm room with Jim Nantz.
Any time Adam Scott is shown. This one’s for the ladies. Also, if it’s mentioned that Adam Scott’s former caddie used to be el Tigre’s.
When some idiot shouts “In the Hole” or “Get in there” on a Par 5 tee shot.
When Rickie Fowler’s new girlfriend gets some air time. She is the new Amanda Dufner.
If Dufner’s weight loss or divorce are mentioned.
If anyone is wearing a white belt.
The announcers mention that Jordan Spieth has been playing phenomenal golf this year. (He’s my favorite this year.)
Take a shot:
When an eagle is made, preferably from a Crystal Goblet just like the one said golfer will be receiving.
Anytime Tiger or Bubba is caught dropping an expletive on camera.
If Rickie Fowler is shown checking out a girl in the gallery.
When Phil’s shot from the Pine Straw is shown.
Remember that year that Rory McIlroy choked harder than anything we’ve ever seen before? Shots. Shots. Shots.
Billy Payne gives an explanation on why it “was time to extend membership to women” at Augusta National.
Dustin Johnson’s absence, his engagement to Paulina Gretzky, or her pregnancy is discussed.
Did you know that an amateur has never won the Masters? Drink.
Any time the question is raised, “Is this Lee Westwood’s year?” Probably.
Finish Your Drink:
If a hole in one is made during tournament play.
If Nick Faldo throws Greg Norman under the bus regarding the Masters of 1996 and his collapse
If Tiger makes the cut.
And if Freddy Couples wins. Finish ALLLL of the beers.
You can follow along with me on twitter @MattieLouOKTC for the rest of the tournament and when I get to Augusta. Enjoy.
