Default 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:

Default Re: Eisenhower Tree at Augusta destroyed

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...
