AUGUSTA, GA (WCSC) -

Thousands of golf fans from around the world have traveled to Augusta to watch their favorite athletes warm up for the Masters.

The Masters practice round in Augusta wrapped up for the day Tuesday afternoon.

But while the focus is on the tournament, the golfers are not the only popular attraction.

Undoubtedly one of the most popular places to stop for fans  at the Masters is the gift shop, housed in a massive building stocked with thousands of items to choose from. 

Two things in particular have been flying off the shelves: the dry-fit Golf tees for men and women which cost about $80 each and the basic baseball caps. These Come in all colors and cost less than $30. 

Since some of the items at the gift shop are only available in person, the items serve as proof and bragging rights that visitors actually attended the Masters.

Others lined up to have their photo taken of the clubhouse, an iconic building on the property that was built in the 1800s. 

Fans are watching their favorites practice before the tournament begins on Thursday.
