Twenty-one-year-old American Jordan Spieth is tearing it up at the Masters. He set a 36 hole record today: 14 under par 130 for the first two days.
Augusta National, the home of the Masters, certainly has its issues. But gouging spectators at the concession stands isn’t one of them.
A CBS sports producer took $100 out with him the other day to see how many golf fans he could buy lunch for at the tournament. He was able to feed 17.
Pimento cheese sandwiches — whatever they are — and soda are available for $1.50 each.
Quick update to this story: Dozens of people wrote in to explain what pimento cheese is, and how allegedly good it is.
Okay, now that I know what pimento cheese actually is…um…I'll pass.
