The Masters begins four weeks from today! One of the many cool things about the season's first major is the relatively new trend in which some of the big clubmakers provide their players with special Masters-themed bags. In the last few days, we've gotten our first looks at a couple of them.

The one on the left in the photo above is Callaway's creation, obviously, while the one on the right is from TaylorMade.

We'll explore them in more detail when we get to Masters week, but for now we can see a magnolia blossom adorning Callaway's bag. And the TaylorMade bag has a ''golden bear,'' which we can safely assume is a reference to the 50th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus' first Masters victory in 1963.
