Need to spice up your backyard this offseason? Well, Dave Stockton might have taken backyard makeovers to a new level. The putting wizard made a putting green in his backyard with some familiar features.
That’s right, he built an Augusta themed putting green in his backyard. Judging from the picture above, it’s pretty huge. But does Dave really need this in his backyard? I mean he does live in Augusta, a stone’s throw from the course.
Distance aside, the putting green is super awesome. A few different holes, 2 bunkers and even the ‘Merica themed centerpiece. Stockton can now enjoy the comforts of the holy grail of golf after a few libations at home, and he doesn’t have to worry about going out into town. He could play the course in his underwear for all we know!

Back Nine Greens, a company specializing in this kind of remodeling, helped Stockton build the golfer’s paradise. We’ve seen their work before. They created a spectacular complex in Marky Mark’s backyard. At this point the only person who trumps Dave’s backyard is Dave Pelz, who resides in the humble abode below.
To make Stockton’s deal even sweeter, he plans to use the putting surface for clinics before the Masters this year, how cool is that? Look forward to seeing this beaut in a week!
If you don’t have the money to get an Augusta themed backyard, might as well use that money to bet on some golfers at this year’s Masters. Here are the Vegas odds:
Rory McIlroy 17/2
He has finished T8, 4th and T10 in three of his last four Masters. The problem is his putting. The weather forecast suggests quick greens. Source: European Tour Twitter
If someone had told us there’d be a Celtic player on the list, we really would’ve guessed Moussa Dembele. It seems Leo didn’t like the cut of his Mercurials, however, and Patrick Roberts was chosen instead. The teenager, contracted to Man City, is a big talent to be fair, and seems like a great guy to boot ?. Sorry, I'll show myself out. Source: You Tube
Adam Scott 30/1
Former Masters Champion, but just one top 10 this year. Next. Source: AP Photo/Lynne Sladky
Henrik Stenson 30/1
Henrik has had a pretty dismal showing - by his standards - in previous Masters. He has never recorded a top 10 at Augusta. Source : European Tour/Instagram
Justin Rose 30/1
Not too sure about this one. Rose is an injury concern and he hasn't been driving well of late. Will need to get that draw going. Source: Twitter Source : Golf Channel
Bubba Watson 40/1
I would not be ignoring a two-time Master winner. This is Bubba Watson after all. He would be a lock for us. Source: Instagram

Thomas Pieters 45/1
Vegas is taking this guy seriously and so should you. Form has dipped lately but he can be so dangerous. Source: Instagram
