Hi everyone -
As we inch closer to the year's first major, we wanted to share our podcast with you, "The History of Golf in Augusta."
It's hard to imagine this corner of the world without golf, yet it's only been 85 years since Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie first broke ground at Augusta National, turning a former indigo farm and plant nursery into a masterpiece of golf architecture.
We wanted to learn more about the events leading up to that legendary partnership, so we visited the Augusta Museum of History where we had the pleasure of meeting Executive Director Nancy Glaser and local author and sports historian Stan Byrdy. Together they shared a number of amazing stories and told us about the series of events that led to Augusta's rise in the world of golf.
Get to know a little more about Augusta, courtesy of Nancy and Stan.
Lastly, our team will be headed to Georgia this weekend to bring you exclusive Titleist content from Augusta. Follow along here, as well as on our social media channels: @Titleist on Twitter, @Titleist on Instagram and on our Facebook page.
All the best,
AbbyTeam Titleist Staff
