Apparently, Augusta National did not take too kindly to the driver of a Google Maps car trying to capture the club for its Street View feature -- and the interaction is now memorialized in Google Maps.
Writer Ryan David took a spin on Google Maps, looking to see Augusta National on Street View. What he found was pretty funny: In a pair of pictures, it's clear a security guard was dispatched to shoo away the Google Maps car before it could take too many pictures of the grounds through the main gate -- the one that goes down Magnolia Lane.

Augusta National loves its privacy. It's a private club; it should. But I wonder how far Google Maps would have gone if they hadn't been caught.
