Frank Christian has the best job in the world for a Golf Photographer.  He is the designated photographer for Augusta National Golf Club.  So designated this makes him the only photographer allowed inside the ropes during The Masters.  In this book, Augusta National and The Master; A Photographer’s Scrapbook, you are taken behind the scenes to places very few have ever been.


Frank Christian is the third generation photographer at Augusta and he presents photos and history dating back to the founding of the club and all that has transpired since.  Bobby Jones wanted the building of the golf course and the inaugural Augusta National Invitational to be saved in pictures and hired Juan Montell, an Italian immigrant, for this task.  This was passed on to his nephew, Frank Christian Sr. and is now the work of Frank Jr.


A perfect coffee table book you can open to any page and find a rare photo and anecdotal information of great interest.  From the building of the club, the clubhouse, changes to the course and of course remembrances of The Masters.


All of the Champions, Presidents of the United States, the Club Chairmen.  It is all here for your enjoyment and will give you an insight like no other to the best golf tournament of them all in the most beautiful golf club in the world.
