One of golf's most famous landmarks is no more. The famed Eisenhower Tree, which guarded the 17th hole at Augusta National Golf Club, has been removed after major damage from a recent ice storm. Ike’s tree was named after the former President and Augusta member because Eisenhower often hit into it.  During a club meeting in 1956, he proposed cutting it down, but was overruled by Masters co-founder Clifford Roberts.
