Masters Memories: The Most Significant Non-Golf Moments in Augusta History

This is part three of a five part series leading up to Masters week. We are now 17 days away from the start of the Masters.

Every April, the best golf players on earth gather in the town of Augusta, GA, for the first major of the year. It is the unofficial start of the golf season and millions of people who weren't lucky enough to be on the list for tickets watch on television.

Golf is center stage on the beautiful course, but there seems to always be something a little extra going on outside the ropes.

To be sure, a great many events that had nothing to do with hitting a golf ball have happened around the Masters. A good example of one that didn't make the cut was Gary McCord being banned from CBS's Masters coverage after making remarks that the club did not like. He said the that 17th green was so fast that it appeared to have been "bikini-waxed," and that "body bags" were located behind that green if a player hit an errant shot back there.

It isn't always a good moment, but one thing is for sure, the moments on this list are very memorable.
