A 40-year-old Masters patron was arrested Sunday after, police said, he attempted to steal sand from the sand trap.
Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Scott Gay said Clayton Price Baker, of Ohio, slipped under the ropes following the tournament and attempted to put the sand in his cup.
After a short foot chase by Augusta National security and sheriff’s deputies, Baker was apprehended and charged with disorderly conduct.
Gay said Baker, who was drinking heavily at the time of the incident, was unsuccessful at getting any of the sand in his cup.
