Here’s a collection of our favorite answers submitted by followers…

“Walking Augusta National for the first time, by myself, very late in the day on Monday of Tournament week, with virtually no one else on the course. It was simply breathtaking, and awe inspiring. Just me and Augusta. It was special. #Augusta #TheMasters #Caddie #CaddieLife” — @ToddCaddie

“Sneaking on backside at @paintsvilleinv course with @tylervanhoose when it would rain so no one would catch us play golf. If it wasn’t for that, don’t know if either of us would’ve started playing.” — @Coach_Hess718

“The day my son broke 70 for the first time at 14 yrs old. First hole-in-one and shot 69 on the same day to finish in the lead and win the tournament. He’s now 18, 6’5” and a freshman playing golf in college.” — @ImLeakinOil

“Earliest memory. Playing golf with my dad and a friend of his at Cherokee golf course. I was probably 10 years old. We were on the par 3 8th hole and my dad’s friend said go ahead and hit you can’t get to the green. I showed him by peppering one into the group on the green.” — @Kygolfnews
