The Masters is just around the corner (15 days, to be exact) and we're pretty excited. There's plenty of golf to be played between now and then but not enough writing about Augusta. We're trying to rectify that by doing a Master countdown every day until the ceremonial tee shot.

I thought it would be kind of fun to look at the Augusta National clubhouse through the last several decades. 

Though the building itself hasn't changed at all from that haunting early 1900s photo at the bottom, the entrance to golf's most hallowed tournament has changed very much over the years, as you can see.
