Men arrested for trying to play at Augusta

It's not easy to play a round of golf at Augusta National golf course. Not even if you try to jump a fence in the middle of the night to grab a few holes before the sun rises.

Augusta police arrested two men early Friday after spotting them trying to scale a fence outside the prestigious course with clubs and golf balls in hand.

William Hamilton DeLong, 23, of Augusta, and Clemson student David Stephen Cooper, 25, were charged with disorderly conduct.

Police said the men were lying on the grass outside National's Gate Seven, holding golf balls and two Dunlop gold clubs.

The men appeared intoxicated, according to the police report.
