Grace to walk Augusta with Player
Last updated: 11th February 2013
South African Branden Grace has secured a practice round at Augusta with illustrious compatriot Gary Player.
Grace announced on Twitter that he was on his way to the United Stated to play events leading up to his debut at the Masters and, much to his surprise, the tweet elicited a response from Player himself.
"All the best," wrote Player. "Let me know if we can help in any way. Play well. Practice hard. Be positive. My best."
Grace immediately responded: "Very much appreciated and would be great to see you and would be awesome to walk down a fairway with you at The Masters #legend."
To which Player replied: "Lets play a Masters practice round with a few of our fellow South Africans. I will have my office reach out to arrange."
Grace can't wait for his Augusta debut. The four-time European Tour champion says the Masters holds a special place in his heart.
"I think the Masters is a tournament every player dreams of playing," he said.
"I've played all the rest so far but I think this is a special one.
"That for me is a golf tournament - that, in my opinion, is the best Major there is. If you can put the green jacket on at the end of the week it will be a dream come true."
