If the doldrums of winter are weighing you down, here's a sign that spring is just around the corner.

Spanish golfer Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño posted a photo to his Twitter page of his official invitation to The Masters.

In case you've never seen, or received, one of these invites, it looks pretty cool:


We imagine few sporting events mail invitations to participants these days, so it's neat to see that the Masters still follows through on tradition. It's great that Fernández-Castaño, who has participated in the tournament twice before, is still so excited to get the letter.

It's pretty funny that the invite requests an R.S.V.P. As if anyone invited to the tournament would somehow decide that they don't want to play Augusta.
