Wearing the jacket



Men, women, children and pets slipped into our paper version of Augusta National's famous green coat. The Chronicle's green jacket photo contest received 50 entries. Here are some of the best, including the winner of our cash prize: Chris and Ruby Davis of Lake City, Ga., who were photographed moments after they were pronounced "man and wife." Here are a few runner-ups.
