More golf food: Ranking Masters concession items | What $20 can get you in Augusta

As you probably know, $20 dollars can go a long way at Augusta National for patrons looking to fill their stomach. The throwback prices have always been a staple of celebrating Masters week, and our own Mike Freedman detailed the extent of $20 worth of damage in April.

That money won't go nearly as far at the 2014 US Open in Pinehurst.

To be fair, the prices aren't "Super Bowl bad," as a domestic beer will run you $6.00 and there are offerings of fruit and granola bars for less than three bucks.

Check out the full menu from the US Open below.

1/3 Lb. Cheeseburger: $7.50

All Beef Hot Dog: $5.00

Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Cheese: $8.00

Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwich: $5.50

Garden Fresh Vegetarian Salad: $7.00

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad: $8.00

Southern Pit Smoked Ham & Cheese Hoagie: $7.00

Smoked Turkey & Cheese Hoagie: $7.00

Snacks: Pretzel, chips, pastries, bagels (all $3.00); jumbo cookie: $2.50; candy bar, granola bar (both $2.00); whole fruit: $1.50

Since we could not pull the impressive haul from the Masters with $20, we changed the challenge to "lunch for two" on Friday. Taking the tests of the day into consideration -- all day on your feet in the hot and humid sun of the Sandhills -- we decided on one 1/3 pound burger, two hot dogs and a bottled water. Split the burger and the water; fill your belly for twenty bucks.
