Lexington, SC (WLTX) - More than half a decade since her grandfather bought them, tickets to The Masters get Meredith Taylor into golf's famed tradition.

"In the 50's or early 60's,  I think my grandfather bought the tickets," said Taylor.  "Back then it wasn't the tournament it is today.  Today, you know, it transcends beyond sports.  It's not just golfers."

Taylor is thankful the tickets came to her family when they did because they changed the future for she and her brother.

"Going to the Masters is what really inspired me to play golf," said Taylor.  "I went in 8th grade.  In 9th grade, I picked up a club and went with my dad and brother who already played and got put on the Lexington High Golf Team.

Taylor went on to play at the University of South Carolina and while on the golf team there, played the famed course.

Her brother was too impacted by those decades old Masters tickets.

"He loved it that much he got the job down there as a part time caddy," said Taylor.  "Spring is Augusta National for us. It's our tradition. It's our thing."
