The famous Magnolia Lane that welcomes some of the world's best players to Augusta National each Spring is feeling the effects of the winter storm that is blanketing the east coast of the country.
WRDW reporter/anchor Meredith Anderson (@MeredithWRDW) shared this photo from her Twitter account of the famous entrance - obviously a far cry from the more familiar beautiful sun-filled visual most golf fans are accostumed to seeing.

Two weeks ago, a different view of Augusta National captivated the golf world - when snow blanketed the famous golf course.
All golf fans are eager to see the home of The Masters in a more green and dry setting in just two hopefully short months.
Callaway Golf is doing all it can to promote the return of the iconic Big Bertha driver. And of course, part of that is bringing out their heavy hitters to talk about - well, their heavy hitter (see what I did there?).
Anyways, Callway's biggest name is Phil Mickelson and as we all know, he LOVES the new Big Bertha. Of course, if you play like Phil Mickelson, it's easy to love a good golf club. But you know what's not always easy? Filming an ad talking about how much you love a new driver.
The ad is about the new technology of the club's "gravity core." To illustrate the importance of the center weight, Callaway is using imagery of Sir Isaac Newton and the famed falling apple. Mickelson attempts to talk about the gravity core and then catch a falling apple. The ad isn't out just yet. But Callaway Golf is having some fun by sharing the outtakes from the shoot.
Mickelson is currently ranked No. 4 in the world. It's a good thing Phil is better at catching birdies than apples. Just sayin'
