Eisenhower Tree at Augusta destroyed
 
Damaged beyond repair in the ice storm. I can't believe it! Has to be the most famous tree in golf. The general finally got his wish.

Yeah, I keep seeing articles with the Oak being pictured for some reason.

Sucks so tear about Eisenhower's Tree though. Probably one of the most identifiable landmarks in all of golf:

what a shame...that will open up 17 immensely from the tee. It was one of the greatest "natural" barriers in all of golf. As far as famous golf trees, I would put this one up there with the two cypress trees on the 18 at Pebble Beach

Knowing ANGC, they will spare no expense to replace with something formidable...

I expect they will hire the folks who built that damned Disney tree of life thing to come in and create and exact replica...

good job on those photos. Ive heard they have a replacement growing (somewheres) but may have been damaged also.

Option 1:

1. Cut it down.
2. Make some tables out of it.
3. Auction them off.
4. Collect money.

Option 2:

1. Cut it down.
2. Make a lot of small trinkets out of it.
3. Sell them for $50.00 each.
4. Collect money.

I would probably buy a $50 trinket made from it.
