#TheMasters 2013 Social Media Guide

When you’re good at something, keep doing it. 

OR. 

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. 

When it comes to organizing social media guides for sports, I’m either the former or the latter. I’ll believe the first but some of you may say the second. 

Be that as it may, I put together a 2013 #TheMasters Social Media Guide for your reference. Organized in alphabetical order, Twitter accounts were obtained via each respective’s golfer’s website (if they had one, which most did not), the PGA Tour’s player list, or the list of golfers on tweeting-athletes.com

Similar to the #MarchMadness guide I did, some of the links were difficult to find. I was amazed to see the large number of golfers without a website. Even when I did find a website, social media links were not always front and center. I can understand not necessarily being on Twitter or Facebook (okay, not really in this day and age), but to not even have a website is a little surprising.

NOTE: If you know of any “official” or “verified” social media accounts that I don’t have listed, please feel free to let me know so I can add to the list.
