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.
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.
