With Round One of the 2013 Masters in the record books, the Digital Check team also had a great day out, with a customer visit by FISTM. FIS is the world’s largest global provider dedicated to banking and payments technologies, and has been a reseller of Digital Check products with check imaging solutions for over a decade.

Our day on the course Thursday began with the honorary first tee by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Player. This triumphant trio each blasted picture perfect drives down the first fairway at a few minutes before 8 a.m. to mark the official start of tournament competition.

Later in the morning, before we settled in behind the second green in our chairs, we experienced a unique opportunity on the first fairway, captured in the photo below. The man who turned out to be our Day 1 co-leader, Australian Marc Leishman, pulled his drive off the tee, positioning his second shot directly in front of us! As Marc executed his second shot, we were presented with this front-row view!

The photo above was taken right next to us, and debuted on www.masters.org later that afternoon. It just goes to show that new and exciting Masters memories can happen on any given shot!
