Timber! Another Augusta Nat'l tree falls

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The storm that ripped through Augusta on Monday night famously claimed a 150-year-old magnolia tree as a victim, but that wasn't the only one.

While working on a photo essay on Augusta National fans, Golf Digest staff photographer J.D. Cuban captured this pine tree toppling near the 15th fairway.

Fortunately no fans, or Mercedes-Benz SUVs, were hurt in the process.
