It’s here. That week we wait for all year round. The Masters has officially begun. Breathe in and you can almost smell the azaleas.
Man, we’d give almost anything to be there in person, to see every swing, hear the crowds roar and lay our eyes on those green jackets. Here are some of the best photos to come out of Augusta so far this week…
