- A golf fan in Arizona has transformed his backyard into a putt-putt course inspired by Augusta National’s back-nine.

- Former PGA Tour caddy Michael Collins visited the course for his ESPN show.
In Phoenix, Arizona, a homeowner transformed his backyard into a miniature golf course designed after the Masters back-nine at Augusta National.
Ahead of the 2021 Masters, former PGA Tour caddy Michael Collins visited the house and played a game for his ESPN+ show, “America’s Caddy.”
The house belongs to the Augustyniak family and the course is called “Augustyniak National”.
AJ Augustyniak also holds the course record at under 10.
The course was designed and built by PuttTek, a company founded by a former amateur golfer of the year from Arizona. It took a month to build.
It looks like a golf fan’s dream backyard, and it doesn’t even need a lot of space.
The course takes up 6,000 square feet of the backyard, and there was still enough room for a pool.
The course includes bunkers and water obstacles.
The 12th hole features the famous Agusta National Bridge.
The 16th hole features a greenside area designed to replicate Tiger’s legendary 2005 chip-in.
Collins finally won his round with a putt on the first playoff hole.
