Simon Hurd, Creative Director at Druh Belts and Buckles and Asian Touring professional, attended his first Masters this year. The KC tracked down the globe-trotting "Hurdy" for a few quick reflections on the trip.

KC: What was your favorite thing about attending the Masters? Who did you come over with?
HURDY: Just appreciating how hilly the course is and how hard the greens are to read.I stayed with Ian Poulter in his house all week, 8 lads good fun. And luckily flew on Justin Rose's jet back to Lake Nona.
KC: Did you meet anyone you'd been hoping to meet? Who were you rooting on?
HURDY: I was there to see Robert Karlsson to give him some belts and speak with him.I met Arnold Palmer also that was a thrill to chat with him.Rooting for all Europeans but mostly Poulter and Rose
KC: Other than Druh belts and buckles, what is the most stylish/smart accessory you saw players wearing at Augusta?
HURDY: There is a company that makes belts in the USA, (House Of Fleming) they are $500 each and they are fantastic but only a very few can afford them.
KC: Before you became a professional golfer, what golf apparel brands did you buy?
HURDY: Pringle was the style 18 years ago, because of Nick Faldo, so i was wearing that.
KC: Masters Champ Angel Cabrera, stylish player?
HURDY: He has ordered some belts from DRUH so a bit of style. Stylish? No, not really just looks like an [average] golfer not a stylish one.

Thanks to Simon for the time. Cheers and good luck.
