AUGUSTA---The Masters Museum is a very special part of Augusta National. A lot of people rush right by it on the way to see the golfers...but spend a few minutes there and you'll get a snapshot of some of that tradition the club is so proud of.
There's some recent history there, too. They always dedicate one case to last year's winner. This year, that would be Angel Cabrera. The champion always donates a club that was key to his victory.
"I always get the same feeling every time I walk out here and see the beauty of the greens and everything," said Mark Milovich of Atlanta. "And just to come in there and see the wall of all the winners and everything, it kind of brings it all together for you...of what this game and what this tournament is all about."
Along with all that, they even have a full-size replica of the Masters trophy. The only other one like it is sitting inside the clubhouse, and most badge holders can't get in there to see it.
The Masters Museum isn't hard to find. It's on the main walk-in right across from the big golf shop and next to the main concession area. It's easy to miss, though, because people tend to rush right by it in a hurry to get to the course.
