Augusta In Arnold's Looking Glass
April 15, 1974
No golf tournament in the world combines the rich traditions, the sense of decorum or the solemnity of the Masters. All week long the ambience is ceremonial, from the champion's dinner on Tuesday to the awarding of the winner's green jacket on Sunday evening. In keeping with the dignity of the event, Arnold (a grand old name) Roth, an artist celebrated for his reverence for propriety, was sent to Augusta to record his impressions, the results of which appear on the next four pages. After that, a look at how the local folks feel about the annual doings at the west end of town.
