  1. Howdy, newbie question, bear with me. In the Amanda Nauman podcast episode there are a few mentions of Masters nationals & the “real” nationals….is there a stigma or a tongue-in-cheek view of the Masters class? Honest question, I’m not baiting anyone up for comment war, just help me understand the differentiation. Thanks in advance.

  2. Hey Harwell, if I recall correctly we were talking about Worlds and not nationals. And the “real” distinction was purely about courses rather than competition. Masters Worlds in Louisville took place at a course adjacent to the course the pros raced on or what I referred to clumsily as the “real” course. Nationals on the other hand is all real, despite your age or category.
