AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- We started our day with Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club Billy Payne.
During the annual press conference, Payne mentioned the expanding future of the Drive, Chip & Putt Competition and how this year's ice storm impacted the course.
Payne said the only damage the ice storm left behind was broken limbs that have since been trimmed and removed.
