As part of a new series on golf culture in America, Only Players visited the mecca of golf during Masters week to get an outside look at Augusta. We have all heard grand tales from inside the hedges, but we got a chance to see what happens outside the gates with the fans before they become the “patrons”.
The true fan’s experience includes the strip of bars on Broad Street, a variety of country music shows, and yes, the ever-popular tourist destination otherwise known as Hooters. You read that right. Every year at the Augusta location, legendary golfer John Daly holds court in a massive tent selling his merchandise and signing autographs. Often with a beer and or cigarette in his hand. Not all day, but all week.
