Golf lovers and professionals alike are gearing up for the 80th edition of the Masters Tournament, which kicks off tomorrow in Augusta, Georgia. While the coveted green jacket has long represented this invitation-only championship, the course is also becoming famous for another beloved staple: its pimento cheese sandwiches.
