The 2011 Masters: What Amateur Will Bring Home the Silver Cup?
The Silver Cup

In this year's Masters at Augusta National, the field will be filled with six amateurs who have earned their way to play in golf's most-heralded tournament.

Every year, amateurs that are competing in the field have the ability, if they choose, to stay in the Crow's Nest that sits atop the Augusta National Clubhouse.

On top of this great opportunity to play against the best in the world as an amateur, they have the chance to go up with veterans such as Nicklaus, Mickelson and Woods.

The youngest player to ever compete at Augusta was Matteo Manassero, who was only 16-years old.

He did not stop there though. Manassero also went on to be the low amateur and take home the Silver Cup, which is awarded to the amateur player who posts the lowest score in the tournament.

This year, there are six amateurs poised to have their names etched in Masters history as the year's best amateur at Augusta National.

Now let's take a look at the six amateurs who are competing this week, and ruminate who will hold up the Silver Cup on Sunday.
