Gary McCord, banned by the Masters Tournament two weeks ago as a CBS television golf commentator, is hoping to get back to Augusta National next year - as a player.
"I'm going to practice my butt off," McCord told The Augusta Chronicle on Thursday from his Vail, Colo., home. "I've got seven tournaments to play in (on the PGA Tour) before Augusta next year. What a story it would make if I made it there."If somehow, I made every putt that week and everybody else had the 24-hour flu and I won (to qualify for the Masters), it would make a very interesting scenario, wouldn't it? That's my goal," McCord said.
