Just arrived at Augusta National after a few years' hiatus, and the place is as beautiful as ever.

Already got to see Bubba Watson crying during a press conference. He does that at every press conference.

About to attend Tiger Woods' press conference. He, like Bubba, has a tradition: Tiger hardly ever says anything of interest. We'll see.

I'lll be here until Monday morning covering the tournament. Please look for my columns at (or follow me on Twitter at @Souhanstrib and I'll link to them). I won't be live-tweeting from the course because cel phones are restricted to the press building, but I'll blog and tweet when I can.

This is one of the great assignments in sports, one of the assignments that makes you feel privileged to work in sports journalism. I love covering all of the big events, but at many of them you feel like you're watching the game on TV and cramming into a clubhouse for a few quotes after. Here, you get to walk the grounds and speak with players as they exit the course.

This has to be the most beautiful land-locked piece of geography in America. Yes, I am lucky to be here.

More on this blog later...

Also, I'll join Judd Zulgad and Jeff Dubay at noon on 1500ESPN every day this week, and will co-host Sunday Sports Talk from here with Tom Pelissero anchoring from the studio. That's 10-noon Sunday, right after the Ron Gardenhire Show at 9:30.
