AUGUSTA, GA (WTOC) -

This year, there's another landmark at Augusta National that everyone's dying to get a picture of.

Just to the right of the 10th fairway, there's a spot surrounded by pine needles and trees where defending champ Bubba Watson made a legendary shot last year - earning him a green jacket.

The shot Watson hit on the second playoff hole was - without a doubt - incredible. Patrons have been swarming the spot all week long taking pictures and posing, trying to figure out how Watson put a nearly 40-yard hook on the ball and was able to make par on the hole to win the Masters.

People said they just couldn't believe the shot when they saw so they had to see the spot firsthand.

"To hit a shot 110 or 20 yards and bend it 30 or 40 yards like he did around that tree. That's why we watch and they play," said Neal Claspill, a Masters spectator.

"When you stand here and look at how far he had to get around the trees and that with a wedge, it's just remarkable it's one of the things we wanted to make sure we came and saw we're glad we did," said Rich Malloy, a Masters attendee.
