This Backyard Golf Hole Looks Just Like Augusta's 12th

Inside the Coolest Backyard in Golf
Short-game guru Dave Pelz leads a tour of the practice facility in his Austin, Tex., backyard. The spectacular spread includes replicas of several famous greens, including the 12th at Augusta National and the 17th at TPC Sawgrass.

NASCAR star Kevin Harvick likes golf so much that he installed a replica of Augusta National's 12th hole, Golden Bell, in his backyard.

It not only looks familiar to him, but likely feels familiar -- the racer played the famed course a few years ago, and supported friend and amateur Scott Harvey who played his first Masters in 2015.

"It's just amazing there," Harvick previously told reporters. "There's nothing else like this place."

Which is true...but having something strikingly close in your backyard is a pretty solid concession.
