If you're confused at what exactly you're looking at above, it is the famed 17th hole at Augusta National just without her most famous addition.
As you know, the Eisenhower was taken down by brutal storms that wrecked havoc across Georgia, really going after the city of Augusta and the famous golf course in the middle of town.
Some thought the tree would be replaced before the Masters, but with such little time and with such drastic measures, the left side of 17 might be bare for the 2014 tournament.
It's emotional for me to view this picture of the famed 17th hole, Nandina, sans The Eisenhower Tree. pic.twitter.com/1xjxu4YWGY
