AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Welcome to the 2014 Masters live blog. You can catch the latest from in and around the course here.

Follow #MastersOn12 on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to find even more all week long.

Crowds are not the norm at Augusta National on the Sunday before the Tournament.

This year's different.

The first Drive Chip & Putt Championship brought in some of the best junior golfers to play on a very prestigious course.

Within a few minutes, we have ourselves an Adam Scott sighting.

Leo Cheng wins the Drive Chip & Putt Boys 10-11 bracket. Cheng gave two-handed fist bumps all around when he had too many trophies to hold.

This little guy knows how to make the crowd laugh.

Johanna Alberto's cringed look after realizing Hunter Pate will win the Drive Chip & Putt Girls 14-15 bracket. Alberto placed second.

We saw a video board with live updates Sunday morning during the championship. No word on if the board stays or goes during the week. Word on the course-- it's very unlikely the board will stay.

Speaking of boards, I hope these kids know how awesome it is to have their names up on the leaderboard at Augusta National. If they don't understand now, they'll have a picture to prove it years down the road.

Louis Oosthuizen getting a few practice swings in.

Jason Dufner was also with Oosthuizen out on the course.

While his bag is nice.

His shoes were nicer. News 12's Travis Ragsdale was drooling over these.

One of Augusta National's newest members, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, made a speedy dash to the Club House on Sunday.

Fred Couples was out on the course, too.

Along with Craig Stadler.

Scott decided to make a quick wardrobe change to get out from under the tree and onto the course.

These Masters tote bags were all the rage at the course on Sunday. I expect more people will buy them during the week, if they haven't run out already.

Today, there were a lot of children at Augusta National. At one point, one toddler's temper tantrum silenced the area. Don't worry. A quick thinking dad scooped the kid up and started running.
