Augusta National Golf Club is pressing charges against a man who was caught trespassing on club grounds last weekend.

According to the Augusta Chronicle, officers were called to the Masters venue at 11.39pm on Saturday, February 20, after club security reported an unknown white male appearing on surveillance cameras. 

That man has been named as 26-year-old Grayson Beveridge from the Augusta suburb of Martinez.

When officers attempted to make contact with him, Beveridge reportedly ran away towards the bridge on Berckmans Road.

After a short pursuit, he was apprehended on Ingleside Drive
