    J.B. Holmes has reached a high point in a relatively short professional golfing career - an invitation to what is arguably THE most prestigious golfing event on the PGA Tour - the Masters.

    Not just anyone gets an invitation. You have to meet at least one of a list of 18 qualifications. J.B. was in by virtue of his February win at the FBR Open in Arizona.

  • It's good work if you can get it

    It's not the glamour it may be rumored to be, but covering a golf major is what we do every day - work. Just a little different kind of work.

    Can you ever get that far away from that four-letter word?

    A semi-weekly newspaper from Kentucky won't turn many heads in the media center at the Masters, but when J.B. qualified in February, I had nothing to lose by asking.
