There are always stops to be made on the road to recovery, just ask San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey.
Posey, who has been recovering from his lower leg injuries suffered in a collision at the plate back in late April, got the amazing opportunity to play golf at the historic Augusta National Golf Club last week in Augusta,GA, the site of the annual Masters Tournament and one of the most prestigious and difficult courses to get on in the world.
Make the jump to check out some of Buster's photos.
Buster, a Georgia native, was part of a foursome with his Father and a couple of members of Augusta (the only way to play Augusta is to be a member or a guest of one) and took some stunning photos during the round.
Here's a nice shot of the foursome standing on the Hogan Bridge on the par 3 12th, better known as Golden Bell (every hole is named after vegetation that is native to the course/area).
Here's a nice shot of Buster blasting out of one of Augusta's 43 bunkers that are strategically placed around the course. Looks like he got it out too, always a plus.
Augusta is not open all year round, in fact it's open a very limited days a year compared to most courses, so getting a tee-time at a time around Thanksgiving is extra difficult. Luckily Buster is Buster and didn't have a problem.
