AUGUSTA, Ga. — The last time Vaughn Taylor was at Augusta National he needed a ticket to get through the gates.
With his career in shambles, he had just about given up on the idea of returning to the Masters as a player.
So, he attended with his young son.
“We thought it would be cool to bring him out,” Taylor said Monday, remembering how his family was at last year’s tournament as fans. “I wanted to wait until I got back in the tournament.” But, he quickly added, “I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it back.”
Indeed, no one saw this coming.
