Jim Nantz, lead play-by-play man for CBS Sports and longtime voice of the Masters, has a backyard that's a golfer's dream.

It's behind the house where Nantz has a replica of the famed seventh hole at Pebble Beach, the stunning, short, par 3 that nestles right along the Pacific Ocean -- OK... the "Pacific Ocean" part of that is missing from Nantz's yard, but it's still pretty sweet.

On Thursday, Nantz's broadcast partner Nick Faldo -- a six-time major winner -- posted a video of him hitting tee shots in Nantz's backyard with Nantz looking on.

But that wasn't all. Just as one might expect from the man who made the words, "Hello, friends," famous, the music of choice in the backyard was the Masters theme music:

In the quick video, you'll also notice a rock near the tee listing the names of those who have aced Nantz's replica hole, including David Feherty, Brandt Snedeker and Nantz's new partner in the NFL booth, Tony Romo.

Nice touch.
