Transcript

My favorite golf course is, um, probably Augusta National, um, it's located in Augusta, Georgia, which is in the United States.

And it's the most beautiful golf course I've ever personally been at.

And honestly, I think it's the most beautiful in the world.

So, as far as the people there (are concerned), they're great, awesome, um, the atmosphere is just, it's super, super exciting, and the scenery is just great.

Probably the reason why it's my favorite course is, the history of the course, um, out of all of the majors that are played in golf, the Masters is by far my favorite.

Um, it's also pretty local to me, I can get there within about 6 and a half hours, and so I actually can easily go there each year. And my uncle actually lives next to the golf course so I try to go as much as I can.
