We’ve all seen the par-3 12th hole at Augusta National and the Masters a million times. Same with the par-5 13th’s green complex, 18th green, Magnolia Lane, the Clubhouse… The times I’ve been there I’ve had fun finding things the average person does NOT see on TV. Here are a few highlights.

Data collecting device…
Not sure what that device is below, but I presume these gentlemen are measuring the moisture level of the green (15th green if I recall).
