UNLIKE THE MASTERS, Augusta is largely low rent, a bargain-basement mosaic of strip malls, strip joints and unassuming
houses -- all surrounding the world's most exclusive club. One attracts galleries and the globe's best golfers. The other attracts gawkers on the lookout for a topless table dance. But despite being worlds apart, it's still a short walk
from Amen Corner to a Bud Light and beef jerky at the corner store.
