There are an estimated 80,000 plants on the Augusta National property, but only one palm. Behind the fourth green, on the western edge of the property, sits a single palm, the last relic of a time when a nursery stood nearby. Last year, a caddie promised his wife a diamond ring if she could find the tree…and none other than Bubba Watson pointed it out to her. (Bubba promised to buy the ring if he won the Masters…and you know how that turned out.)
