Green Jacket Auctions did not reveal the identity of the private bidder that took the jacket at the close of bidding Saturday, only indicating that the buyer was from the United States.

Two are at the lead, at 6 under.

Can he do something special to get back one day?

Els said his fondest memories of Augusta were from his first appearance in 1994 when he got to play with American former champion Ben Crenshaw and Spain's Jose Maria Olazabal who went on to win the tournament.

The four-times major champion and former world number one has never worn the Augusta Green Jacket, two runners-up spots being the highlights of his 23 trips to the year's first major. "To me, sports and entertainment have become the same thing in a good way". I had a positive experience there.

"I don't really feel emotional, because of my play". Many other years, my score would have been good enough.

Augusta National has strict rules that forbid anyone from taking a phone or camera on to the course, a throwback to the days of spectators who focused exclusively on the action as opposed to capturing a selfie or tweeting.

The decision enables the government to bypass parliament in enacting new decrees and to suspend rights and freedoms. The invitation "could pave the way for Erdogan to once again lead the party he founded 16 years ago", she said.

Now, Justin Rose rests in the runner-up position-but with time to claim a green jacket. On the par-3 12th, where his quadruple bogey doomed him a year ago, Spieth on Saturday saved par from behind the green, near the played-out azaleas, requiring a 10-foot putt to do so.

He was 20 over par for the tournament. His third shot stuck a foot from the hole, and while he could have made his birdie blindfolded, he chose not to.

"I guess it's possible", he said. "Wealthy New Yorkers and worldwide buyers who want the very best pieces are willing to pay what are record prices for the golf hobby because they believe that there is still a great deal of upside with the top pieces of memorabilia". Also sold was Sam Snead's 1954 Masters trophy, which at the time was a sterling silver cigar-humidor engraved with the signatures of the event's participants. And perhaps CBS might be wise to run a trailer beneath the screen advising its viewers to not adjust the color on their flat screens.

"Vibrant orange" trousers are on the menu for Fowler for Masters Sunday, according to the Puma website.

Each night Mercedes hosts guests in an elegant setting where they are entertained by golfing celebrities such as brand ambassador Rickie Fowler, who finished an intimate chat on Tuesday by signing autographs for a smitten audience.

"It was nice playing with him". Here at the Masters, he has expressed affection for the old-fashioned hand-turned scoreboards. "But I have loved every minute of being here and I'll come back somehow". Time was when Els would have had a late afternoon tee-time himself on Sunday. However, only the Masters champion may take their green jacket off the grounds of the club, and then only for their one year on the throne.
