Whether you’re a Masters patron or a member of the media, you don’t bring your mobile phone inside the gates at Augusta National Golf Club. It’s not allowed, so don’t try. If you’re caught, you could be removed from the premises and potentially banned from ever returning.
So, no one gets a phone in to the Masters, right?
Well, apparently someone managed to sneak one in there on Sunday and got caught on international TV trying to take some video or photos of the 72nd-hole action.

As Sergio Garcia missed his putt on No. 18 to win the Masters in regulation, someone was seen behind a reacting Garcia with a phone out, using it to take video or a photo. Some speculated the person works for Augusta National, though their video is all broadcast quality and not done through a mobile device.
So, someone broke the rules.
