Photo Essay: An Invite To Augusta

What's it like to be a guest at Augusta National? Our Alan Pittman found out

April 2012
For members of the media, one of the fun asides about attending the Masters is participating in Augusta National's media lottery, which allows a select few a chance to play the course on Monday after the tournament (from the member tees using Sunday's pin placements). This was my first time attending the Masters, and, as luck would have it, my name was drawn. Along the way I snapped a few photographs to remember the day.
