AUGUSTA NATIONAL | THE MASTERS

Not long to go now until the ceremonial tee shots are hit and the 80th Masters Tournament is underway.


So, to further whet your appetite, we've combined some pictures of the famed course two years after it opened in 1935, with some more recent pictures to show how much the Georgia layout has changed in 81 years. All of the old pictures are from Simon Haines (@Hainesy76), who regularly tweets some fantastic historic golf images.
