Who to follow on Twitter during Masters week

It's Masters week, one of the few times all season that the entire sports world stops and focuses all their attention on the white, dimpled ball. You may not care a ton about golf the other 51 weeks out of the year, but this week the combination of importance plus tradition plus beauty makes you salivate over the Masters.
