Of the dreams pro golfers have, opening a Masters invitation is up there.
Eddie Pepperell had that honor for the first time this year, as he will make his Masters debut in 2019 thanks to finishing 2018 in the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
His brother Joe, who works as a teaching pro at Oxford Golf Club, decided it would be nice to capture the moment of Eddie opening his Masters invitation and posting it on social media.
Eddie is pretty nonchalant in his brother’s footage, but their father, Ron, also appears in the video.

Eddie joined in on the fun by taking a swipe at himself:
Ron’s enthusiasm is not only understandable, but a joy to watch. Now just imagine how he’s going to feel once he’s on the Augusta National grounds.
