AUGUSTA---Augusta National is a photographer's dream. Everywhere you look, there's another possible picture. But no cameras are allowed during tournament days at the Masters.
That's why so many people stand in line at Founder's Circle. They're waiting for the chance to pose in front of the most famous clubhouse in the world and have their picture taken by an Augusta National photographer.
"Willing to stand in line, especially for her (his companion), because this is the number one priority," said patron Josh Stevens of Ft. Lauderdale. "If she could bring her camera in, she would have taken a lot more pictures--but this is the only way to get a picture, so we're in line."
"Well, the Founders Circle is a beautiful place," said Laura Vann of Augusta. "It's iconic of The Masters. Magnlia Lane, the clubhouse, people see that and they know, 'Oh my gosh, you were there!'"
And if the picture isn't enough, they give you a souvenir to keep. It's the size of a credit card and tells you how to go and find your picture on the Masters website.
