AUGUSTA---Augusta National isn't a place you go. It's a place you experience. And that experience gives you a front row seat to the Masters of golf.
But the masters of golf want to give you an experience too--through social networking.
Bubba Watson posted a video to Twitter of a ride down Washington Road.
Even Tiger Woods is getting in on it.
"It was quite interesting starting out, because you get all of these followers, and the next thing you know, they ask a variety of questions and they are all cool questions," Woods said. "They all want to see you do well, and it's fun to have the ability to have direct connection to the fans."
Ian Poulter posted a picture of himself getting ready to play.
"I wouldn't expect him ironing his pants, so that's kind of nice," said Masters patron Lisa Ruth. "And I think it's nice he likes to share it."
Some golfers like Graeme McDowell like Twitter so much, they're having trouble this week staying away. McDowell tweeted, "We were very well behaved and stayed off the phones all day out there."
But once they're off the course, they're free to tweet away. So, as you post pics and video tonight, you can bet they are too.
