Georgia Man Crafts Masters Leaderboard from Legos
The Masters remains one of the toughest tickets to score in sports—but this year there is a way to view a small piece of the tournament’s historic setting without that coveted pass.
A Georgia man has followed his twin passions for golf and architecture to their logical conclusion: building the golf world’s most iconic structures out of thousands of tiny Lego bricks. This comes via an article from Meg Mirshak at the Augusta Chronicle. Andy Duckett’s latest creation is a detailed recreation of the Masters leaderboard, now on display in Augusta.
The sculpture weighs 40 pounds and measures 65 inches long. In 2014, Duckett built a replica of the Augusta National clubhouse, which he says sold for $1,700. Want to get your hands on your very own (small-scale) piece of the Masters action? He plans to sell the leaderboard as well.
This isn't the first time we've seen Duckett. Just two years ago, he did the same thing with the Augusta National clubhouse.
