AUGUSTA, Ga. -- High noon at Augusta National, and the rain's a' comin'. It will be a different golf course this afternoon than it was with the sky blue and the boidies choipin' at 7:45 this morning.

Anyway, it's lunchtime, and that's a good thing at Augusta because the menu prices here are once again from the Eisenhower Era. The food prices here are the most welcome sight in American sport.

You ready?

Sandwiches: Egg salad, pimento cheese, ham & cheese on rye, tuna salad, and turkey are all $1.50. Bar B-Que (their spelling, not mine), masters club and chicken breast are $2.50

Beverages: Soft drinks, bottled water and iced tea are $1.50. Domestic Beer is $2.75. Imported beer is $3.50.

Snacks: Candy, chips, crackers, peanuts and cokies, all $1. Ice cream, $2.

It's actually cheaper than bringing your own. Which you can't. Of course.
