Is this a dream?

This is the thought that initially entered my mind due to the fact that my dad and I had just driven twelve hours through the night and were running on very little sleep in the past 24 hours. But even if I had not been in this delirious state, it still would have been hard to comprehend that I was now passing through the gates of the famed Augusta National Golf Club.

In 2010, I had the privilege of attending the Masters on Tuesday and Wednesday…lucky for me, cameras are permitted during Practice Round days. Here are the sights I captured inside one of the most famous golf clubs in the world:
