I cannot believe it’s already here. It’s time for quarter-zips in the morning and polos in the afternoon. Lunch beers and lunch balls. Putters around the office. Bunsen burner hot coffee in my customized YETI in the a.m. and bone chillingly cold cold brewed coffee in the p.m. Opening Day. The Masters. Hell, it’s time to duck out a little early and sneak 9 in after work. SPRING, BABY.
That’s what I’m talking about. It’s always grind time, Chamillionaire taught us that, but we’re about to be in the ideal temperature zone for outdoor activity. I’m talking about cool in the morning, and warm in the afternoon. It’s the sweet spot. Keep in mind I’m in Central Texas, so this is a big damn deal to me. We have like 6 weeks of this, and then it’s lower back sweat on the commute home and swamp ass on the course. We need this. To kick it off, we’re going live from the WGC Dell Match Play in Austin, Texas to watch the best players in the world ply their craft in our backyard. And we’ve got a little contest to go with it.
Enter our WGC Dell Match Play bracket challenge for a shot at prizes courtesy of Man Outfitters and Rowdy Gentleman. Because of the match play format, the cutoff to enter is WEDNESDAY morning when the first pairing tees off.
Prizes are as follows:
1st Place: $100 Gift Cards from Man Outfitters and Rowdy Gentleman.
2nd Place: $50 Gift Cards from Man Outfitters and Rowdy Gentleman.
3rd Place: $25 Gift Cards from Man Outfitters and Rowdy Gentleman.
That can go a long way as you carefully craft your spring aesthetic. Why did we do this? Well, short answer is we had to, and the long answer is we.had.to.do.it.to.em. It’s that simple. Touching Base will have quite a bit of golf content this week, so you may as well get a little skin in the game. It takes 3 minutes to fill it out. Make it happen.

If you’re making your way out to Austin Country Club, look for us around hole 12 in the Ultra Club. We’ll be all over the place, though. Look for the snaccs..
