The Green Jacket, Amen Corner, Magnolia Lane, Pimento Cheese Sandwiches, Jim Nantz… Every year, the first weekend in April brings with it the finest golfing event known to man.

So to whom do we owe our gratitude for this golfing dream? Bobby Jones would be at the top of the list. Here’s how Augusta National began and The Masters came to be.
