Masters or Bar Refaeli?

The Masters is one of those events that a lot of us sports fans dream to go to. But what would people give up to actually play the course?

I just got sent the results of an online survey commissioned by the folks at Callaway.

The headline?

"When asked if they would rather play Augusta National or have a date with SI Swimsuit cover girl Bar Refaeli, 78 percent chose Augusta."

Before you express surprise, let me say that the survey was taken from a population of guys who say they "play golf."

Ask this question of the general male population and I'd estimate you'd probably have more like 80 percent taking the date with Bar.

I mean, Amen Corner is pretty cool, but come on...

The survey of male golfers also reveals that 60 percent of them said that, even in today's economic environment, they would "forfeit a week’s pay to have the opportunity to play Augusta National."
