Today the rounds count, and we’ll be glued to coverage from the time the first group tees off until the last group putts out on 18.  That said, we thought it was only appropriate to revisit a feature on a few of our favorite things from Augusta National.  The post below originally ran on April 8, 2013.

Last year, thanks to Ben getting lucky in the practice round ticket lottery, we were fortunate enough to get the chance to experience The Masters first hand.  From the time we stepped through the gates we knew we were in for something that we would never forget.  Augusta National is one of those places that looks like heaven when you see it on TV and it’s even better in person.  To officially kick off Masters week here at Bowties & Boatshoes, today we’re looking at some of our favorite things that you can only find at Augusta National.

Green Jacket: In our opinion, the only people who should ever wear a green blazer are Masters winners and Augusta National members.  If you want to really go all out with your Bubba Watson costume this Halloween, you can pick up one from our friends over at Country Club Prep.

 Needlepoint Belt: We’re still kicking ourselves for not picking one of these up last year, and have our fingers crossed we may be able to talk someone in to grabbing one for us when the souvenir shop opens today.  Our buddy JRS over at Red Clay Soul has one in his collection, and boy is it a looker (that picture we used is his).

 Caddy Hat: Just like the hat the caddies wear during the tournament, this is the hat we ended up bringing home for a few friends last year.  We thought it was only right as we had one brought to us years ago.

Pimento Cheese Sandwiches: Yes, we know you can get a pimento cheese sandwich outside the gates of Augusta National, but we’d be willing to bet this is the only tournament in the world that serves them.  At only $1.50, even if you aren’t a fan of pimento cheese, you almost have to pick one up just so you can say you did.

 Pin Flag: Sure, we’d love the chance to actually tend a pin with this flag flying, but the souvenir version is probably as close as we’ll ever get.

 Tradition: After being fortunate enough to visit Augusta National last year, the phrase “A tradition unlike any other” took on a whole new meaning for us.  Literally, the experience is one that can’t be matched.
