Crenshaw believes end is near at Augusta


Two-time Masters winner Ben Crenshaw believes the end to his playing career at Augusta National is near.

'I think about it a lot. I don't think it will be very long (until he retires from the Masters),” Crenshaw said, according to the Augusta Chronicle. 'It's just a chore getting around (Augusta National).”

Crenshaw is playing in his 41st consecutive Masters. Though he won in 1984 and ’95, the 60-year-old Crenshaw has made the cut just twice – 2006 and ’07 – since Tiger Woods first won in 1997.

Though his playing days at Augusta National may be close to ending, Crenshaw will surely continue as master of ceremonies for the Champions Dinner. Byron Nelson passed the role on to Crenshaw in 2006.

'I'm having fun being part of it,' Crenshaw said. 'I'm fortunate to be a part of it for this long.'
