As the final round of the Masters wraps up, many are heading back home.

Augusta Regional Airport was packed Sunday with patrons flying out and sharing memories of their first time on the course.

Patrons flew across the country and across the world to see the tournament.

Lines began forming at Augusta Regional Airport Sunday with patrons decked out in Masters gear.

Ian Cawich prepared to fly back to Little Rock, Arkansas just a day after getting to the Garden City.

“The greens, the fairways, how wide the fairways are, just how everything is perfectly manicured,” said Ian Cawich.

His flight to Augusta was delayed Friday night due to storms, but he still made it to the tournament on Saturday with his son.

“I’ve never been to the Masters and it was a bucket list, and he’s someone interested in golf and I think this was a good step to make him really be interested in golf,” said Ian Cawich.

Ian Cawich won the tickets at a silent auction at his 11-year-old son’s school.

“It’s something that a lot of kids my age don’t get to do,” said Kit Cawich.

Kit Cawich said seeing all his favorite golfers, like Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth, in person gave him inspiration.

“Now that I’ve actually been to a golf tournament and the Masters, I realized that maybe, yeah, I might do golf,” said Kit Cawich.

While the father and son duo went through security check, Scotland native Jamey Bowers was getting ready to do the same.

“I have to say, I definitely appreciate golf, definitely, I’ve got an understanding of golf,” said Bowers.

Even though her boyfriend has been to the tournament many times and has even played on it, this week was the first time she hit the course.

“I mean I’ve seen it on TV, but to see it in real life is unreal, really pretty, the grass is as a green as it could be, it’s beautiful, beautiful,” said Bowers.

City officials said this year they’ve noticed patrons are coming to Augusta earlier than normal and stay in town later.
