As far as backyards go, Kevin Harvick has just about everyone beat.
Outdoor putting greens are fairly common in, and outside of homes – but Harvick takes it to another level. The NASCAR driver is an avid recreational golfer – so much so, in fact, that he has a replica of Augusta National’s 12th hole in his backyard:
