Alabama head coach Nick Saban was one of many celebrities in attendance at The Master's on Sunday...
Augusta National Golf Club member Lee Styslinger noticed a familiar face standing on the wrong side of the clubhouse rope.
“I’ll take one of those today,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said, as Styslinger placed a ‘Member Guest’ badge around his neck.
After eating, Saban walked with two members across No. 9 fairway and made his way towards No. 2 green.
As he strolled the grounds, the 7-time national champion college football coach was greeted by spectators.
“Great to see you, Coach,” said Gowan Lenaghan, from Mobile.
Since arriving at Alabama in 2007, Saban has annually been invited to play Augusta National.
“When you walk in, you really wouldn’t know if you’re in 1940, 1960, 1980 or 2010,” Saban said. “There’s such a tradition that it’s almost eerie — in a good way.”
