H. Lowrey Stulb, the man who designed Eisenhower's Cabin and Sarazen's Bridge at Augusta National, died at 96 on Wednesday. His funeral will be on Saturday.
The Augusta Chronicle details a life lived in the shadow of the world's most famous golf tournament.
"Lowrey Stulb's love affair with the Masters began in 1934 when he was a student at Richmond Academy and served as a gallery guard for the first Augusta National Invitation Tournament."
Stulb built the Cabin in 1953 -- they started construction the day after that year's Masters ended and it was ready by Oct. 1.
He called it Mamie's Cabin. It is located right by the 10th tee and was the site of, most recently, Rory McIlroy's epic meltdown at the 2011 Masters.
Stulb also designed (and this might be even more fascinating to me) the wine cellar beneath the clubhouse.
An interesting life, no doubt, and at 96 a pretty full one as well. He passed on a fantastic legacy, one that will stand for decades to come. One that housed presidents.
One that he can be proud of.
