I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was Monday morning. I woke up at four in the morning to get ready and begin my 3 hour trek from Atlanta to Augusta. It was my first trip to Augusta National and I didn’t want to miss a second. Although it was just a practice round, I was extremely grateful for the opportunity to attend The Masters. Not only was I going to watch some of golfs greatest play the game, but also be surrounded by history.

Upon arriving in the parking area, I was already in awe. The April sun peeking through the tall pines, the smell of the morning dew on the grass; it all seemed like a dream and I hadn’t even gotten to the course yet. A long walk through scalpers, ticket holder sales kids, and security led me on to the grounds. There I was peering into the practice area at Augusta National, golf balls already flying through the air. I could sense something was different here; something felt special about this place.

I can’t accurately describe the rest of of my day and do it justice. I was lucky enough to bring a camera along with me and take pictures throughout the day. You can check out the beautiful images from my day at Augusta below:

I know there probably are many of you who aren’t necessarily “into” golf. That being said you might not understand what this course means. If that’s you (and even if it’s not) check out some of the greatest moments from The Masters below:
