Former Gopher golfer Wilhelm Schauman is covering The Masters for a Swedish television station.
Schauman was a key player on the Gopher team that won the national title in 2002. One of the All-Americans from that team, Justin Smith, is now the Gophers’ head coach.
He had visited Augusta National before but never before with a media credential. ``It’s amazing,’’ he said. ``It’s so much bigger than when I was here in ‘05. It’s just a different setup.
``It’s incredible. I went to the Tour Championship in East Lake and I was able to walk inside the ropes with a mic. Here, the patrons come first. Which is cool.’’
