The Masters was started by Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts, and was first played at Augusta National (designed by Jones and Alister MacKenzie) in 1934.

One of the world's most famous holes. Another brilliant risk/reward hole, this one arguably more than any other has been responsible for determining who ends up with the green jacket and has had everything from Phil Mickelson's astonishing shot from behind the trees to Tiger Woods putting into

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Rico’s elections commission said Tuesday that it has discovered more than 100 briefcases containing uncounted ballots a week after the U.S. territory held its general election, drawing criticism and scorn from voters who now question the validity of the outcomes of certain races.

Francisco Rosado, the commission’s new president, said the briefcases were found in a secured vault and blamed the situation on what he said was an underfunded and understaffed administrative board responsible for counting a record number of absentee and early votes.

Tiger Woods is passionate about the Masters. Over the years, Augusta National has loved him back.

  Tiger Woods is passionate about the Masters. Over the years, Augusta National has loved him back. On an otherwise bright day in December of 2015 in the Bahamas, where soft breezes off the sparkling waters pleasantly mixed with warm temperatures, a dark, depressing cloud emerged in the form of a hobbled, subdued Tiger Woods. Once a relentlessly intense and…Once a relentlessly intense and invincible force who spent a record 683 weeks as the world’s top-ranked player, made a record 142 consecutive cuts on the PGA Tour, won 14 major championships in 12 years and was sitting on 79 PGA Tour titles, Woods delivered grim news ahead of the Hero World Challenge.

So who are the most famous graduates who have graduated from MIT? Here goes the list of 10 most famous alumni from MIT. Ben Bernanke is a famous American economist who served Federal Reserve and the Central Bank Kofi Annan passed out from MIT earning him a master ’s degree.

“We’ve identified, much to our regret, a disorganization in the handling of material in the vaults,” he said at a press conference. “Misplaced. Poorly organized. We have to admit that.”

Rosado said he didn’t know yet how many total votes are in the 126 briefcases, noting some contained three ballots and others 500 ballots. Officials initially said there were 182 briefcases but later revised the number.

“Every vote will be counted,” he said. “I have to tell the people of Puerto Rico to trust the transparency of the process.”

The discovery is the latest misstep for a commission that botched the island’s primaries in August so badly that a second round of voting was held, an unprecedented situation that led to the commission’s previous president to resign a month later. Then the commission was criticized for taking a record four days after the Nov. 3 general election to finalize counting nearly all votes, only to announce on Tuesday that it had discovered more briefcases. Traditionally, the commission releases final vote counts the night of the election.

Phil Mickelson content to stay in background at Masters

  Phil Mickelson content to stay in background at Masters Phil Mickelson, now 50 and 10 years removed from his third and last Masters championship, is playing the role of elder statesman this week.But reality has been sending a different message to Mickelson: that he is 50 now, 10 years removed from his third and last Masters championship, playing the role of elder statesman much more than that of long-ago wunderkind.

Roberto Iván Aponte, electoral commissioner for Puerto Rico’s Independence Party, said in a phone interview that he expects all votes inside the newly discovered suitcases to be counted by Thursday at the latest. He said those votes could affect races like the one for mayor of Culebra, a popular tourist island just east of Puerto Rico. The mayor elect won only by two votes, according to preliminary results.

Aponte and other officials blame the ongoing problems on a new law that Gov. Wanda Vázquez approved in June just two months before the primary that led to several changes including the softening of restrictions for absentee and early voting and eliminating departments and high-ranking positions within the elections commission, which led to the departure of longtime officials. This year, Puerto Rico received more than 220,000 absentee and early votes, a record for officials who have been overwhelmed by the paperwork.

Why the Masters Par 3 Contest is one tradition that won't happen at Augusta in 2020

  Why the Masters Par 3 Contest is one tradition that won't happen at Augusta in 2020 The 2020 Masters will be without the Par 3 contest, but other traditions like the Champions Dinner and ceremonial opening tee shots will still take place. And there'll be a College Gameday appearance, too.The Par 3 Contest won't take place at the 2020 Masters, just one tradition that's lost in a year filled with cancellations due to COVID-19.

Like last year, it happened during breakfast at the Masters. Like last year, everyone was talking about Tiger Woods and the 12th hole.
