Peter Uihlein at the Crow's Nest for the Masters

From the Associated Press:

CROW'S NEST: Former IMG Academy student Peter Uihlein picked the wrong night to spend in the Crow's Nest, the upper floor cubicle at Augusta National where top amateurs in the Masters are invited to stay.

Watching the national championship basketball game with fellow amateur David Chung was fine. But the powerful storm that roared through the area later in the night caused Uihlein some anxious moments.

"I was up all night," the U.S. Amateur champion said.

There was no damage in the Crow's Nest, though Uihlein had already planned to move into a house with relatives and his girlfriend for the rest of the tournament.

Despite the storm, Uihlein was soaking in the experience of his first Masters, including hitting a tee shot on the par-3 12th hole for the first time.

Like his stay in the Crow's Nest, that was an adventure.

"I hit it in the water the first time I played," Uihlein said. "Right pin, I went for it."
