Multiple prominent figures in the sports world have been spotted at The Masters this weekend. Nick Saban is in attendance today.
Fresh off his seventh national championship, Saban has been busy with spring practice, but decided to take advantage of a day off by heading to the final round at Augusta. He’s in the crowd today and the cameras found him.
Not surprisingly, he’s wearing Alabama colors.

In addition to Saban, NFL quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Ryan Fitzpatrick have been at The Masters over the last few days. This year’s projected No. 1 overall pick, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, was also on the scene.
As it stands, Saban might be in line to see a tremendous finish on the course. Twenty-four-year-old Will Zalatoris has birdied the first two holes to move to -9 for the weekend and into second place.
Leader Hideki Matsuyama bogied his first hole to fall to -10, meaning it’s officially game on. Meanwhile, Corey Conners and Xander Schauffele are lurking at -7. Unless Jordan Spieth (-5) can launch a massive rally, we’re looking at a first-time green jacket winner emerging.
