“Everything I know for sure about morals and commitments I owe to football,” said Albert Camus. But I wonder how the big man could have adapted that famous line for the Masters. As a lover of the sporting life, Camus would no doubt have fenced off this week’s four days at Augusta National as an important ritual — yes, even an obligation. However, I suspect he would reach the same conclusion on golf as he does on football, except adding the words… “but not in a good way”.

he golf and the track are beautiful, all the fine things about morals and duties are honored in the actual play of the game – something demonstrated in a lofty gesture last year when Shota Hayafuji, winner Hideki Matsuyama’s caddy, substituted flag up the 18th green and bowed as a mark of respect in the general direction of the course they had just negotiated.
