Description of piece:
The Redbud, Cercis canadensis, is one of the taller of Augusta's flowering trees. The small pink flowers appear early in spring and the fifty or so trees which enhance this hole make a delightful show. The scoring on this difficult but scenic hole has been the deciding factor in many Masters Championships. Originally a short, undramatic par three, it was reworked in 1947 by Robert Trent Jones and now plays across a long pond to a fiendish target - not just the green but the correct sector of the green for a ridge slices the surface into two tiers. The tee shot is made more intimidating by the presence of three bunkers, with the right-rear being the most fearsome on the course.
Since focusing her skills as a landscape painter to recreate some of the world's most beautiful golf holes, Linda Hartough has become recognized as one of golf's leading artists. So extraordinary and realistic is her attention to detail that her oil paintings seem to come alive with a clarity that surpasses the camera. Her paintings are in the collections of such famous clubs as Augusta National, Pine Valley and Laurel Valley. Hartough originals are also included in the private collections of Jack Nicklaus and Rees Jones. In 1984, Augusta National Golf Club commissioned Hartough to paint the famed 13th hole, thus beginning her golf landscape career. After an enthusiastic response to her work at the 1988 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, she focused her career entirely on golf landscapes. Since that time, Hartough's work has enjoyed unparalleled status in the golf world while receiving international acclaim, including Golf Digest's "Lifetime Achievement Award." She is a Founding Trustee of the Academy of Golf Art, a professional society of golf artists established in 2004 to create awareness and appreciation of golf art as a valuable segment of fine art. As a capstone to her remarkable career, in 2017 Hartough was inducted into the Low Country Golf Hall of Fame.
