Bode Miller busted for trying to bring a quesadilla into the Masters
What was that lesson?
Quesadillas are not allowed inside the grounds of Augusta National.
Bode Miller learned quickly about certain no-nos when he exited Berckmans Place, Augusta National Golf Club’s posh hospitality venue.
Miller, an Olympic gold-medalist skier, and his wife, Morgan Beck, were stopped on their way to the course and instructed to surrender a quesadilla they’d hoped to snack on during the first round of Masters Tournament play Thursday.
"If you pay $7,500, you ought to be able to bring out a quesadilla," Miller said.
Here’s more details on the Berkmans Place:
The facility, which opened last year, is available to Augusta National members, tournament sponsors and other friends of the club. Visitors there Thursday said the facility, portions of which are visible from the Gate 9 walkway, easily covers 90,000 square feet, with three distinct dining areas, walls of Masters history, areas from which to watch the tournament and a practice putting area that’s a replica of three Augusta National greens.
There was no quesadilla, I asked if I could take my leftovers in a to-go box and they said no, to which we responded, "ok."

Sounds like a slice of heaven inside golf heaven.
Just don’t try to bring any food from the hospitality venue to the course. Or you’ll learn a tough lesson.
