Dog eats prized tickets to Masters golf tourney
SEATTLE | Russ Berkman’s dream came true when he won a lottery for four passes to Wednesday’s practice round at the Masters golf tournament in Georgia. But the Seattle-area resident’s stomach turned when he found his dog, Sierra, had eaten them.
Mr. Berkman told KJR radio on Tuesday he was determined to go. His girlfriend told him he had to make Sierra puke.
He induced vomiting and recovered a gooey glob. Then he went to work trying to put about 20 vomit-covered pieces back together.
He says he recovered about 70 percent of the tickets. He took photos and explained the situation to the Augusta National Golf Club as “my dog ate my Masters tickets!”
The club reprinted Mr. Berkman’s tickets and had them waiting for him in Georgia.
