Scots in Augusta to support Stephen Gallacher


With nearly 100 players from around the world, the Masters tournament is truly a global affair. 

Some countries are more represented than others, but that doesn't stop golf fans from across the globe from travelling thousands of miles to Augusta every April. 

The flags fly high atop the iconic leaderboard at the Augusta National Golf Club, symbolizing the diversity of the players representing more than 50 countries.

While Americans have plenty of players to call our own, this year, the Scottish only have one.

Stephen Gallacher is making his Masters debut. A few of his most dedicated fans are in Augusta to follow him through the tournament.

This is the group's first trip to the Augusta National, and no matter how Gallacher does, they say they're just happy to be here. 

"[I] cannot believe how fantastic this place is. It's an honor to be here. It truly is," said Jonathan Kelly, who is from Glasgow. "He's from Glasgow and we're hoping Stephen does really, really well. We wish him all the best."
