A road to Augusta lined with sights and sporting history

BARNETT – This is an unincorporated settlement, which is nothing more than a long blast for a professional PGA golfer driver from Highway 20 – a place with a connection to the sport’s history that loses its luster over time.

Before we get to the historical link, here’s a note on how I came to take a short break in the Warren County community.

Last week for the Masters Golf I chose to travel to Augusta from Athens. Sleeping in one’s bed never grows old. Getting to Augusta has been for years going the two-lane US 78 through Crawford, Lexington, Raleigh, Washington, connecting to I-20 East in Thompson, and to my destination.
