Many residents of Augusta choose to leave town during Masters Week.
The tournament week usually coincides with Spring Break, so many of the area's students leave town, too.
But a number of them manage to find work.
Many area high schoolers are spending their spring break at Augusta National Golf Club.
Chris Drayton, an Augusta Chronicle All Area First Team safety, and Evans wide receiver, Ryan Crislip, were among the many teens traversing the National's grounds picking up trash.
Evans kicker Reid Tankersley was one of the workers helping at the National this past Sunday.
"It's a lot of fun, being out here," he said. "There aren't many better ways to spend your spring break."
Lakeside striker Ashley Wray spent the week working at the exclusive Pro Shop outside the first hole and adjacent to the clubhouse. Wray got to hang around the pro shop while many of the world's best golfers walked around in front of her.
"I'm having a lot of fun out here," she said. "I'm inside most of the time, but we have a great view outside. A lot of the girls went away or went to the beach. But it isn't so bad if you're working here."
