Local couple gets engaged at Masters golf course
Longtime North Augusta resident is now engaged to Blake Goolsby, of Augusta, since he popped the question to her Monday morning at Augusta National, where their friendship began.

This week's souvenirs and memories from Augusta National Golf Club may be especially meaningful for Nora Hooks and Blake Goolsby, whose friendship began at the golf course and is now on track to lead to marriage.

The two met in the spring of 2006 in the club's main gift shop, where Hooks was a cashier and Goolsby was a stocker. She is now a kindergarten teacher at Redcliffe Elementary School, and he is an attorney, based in Augusta.

He popped the question and presented a ring Monday morning, kneeling at the end of the 18th aisle, where she had worked as a teenager. She said yes, and customers and employees in the vicinity broke out in cheers and applause..
