Here's a great shot of Byron Nelson getting ready to play in a Masters in the 1930s at Augusta National.

Can you imagine the rejoicing that would happen in the caddie clubhouse if golfers came to the course with a bag that small and only 10 clubs in it?

Nelson won the Masters in 1937 and 1942 and finished in the top 10, get this, 12 times in a row from 1937 to 1951 (that's more than 12 tournaments but there was no golf in 1943-1945 because of the war).

He is one of 16 golfers to win the tournament multiple times.
