After Alabama football completed its second of three spring scrimmages, Nick Saban packed his bags and headed to Augusta.

The seven-time national champion college football coach announced earlier this week that he plans to attend the final round of the Masters on Sunday.

Saban has not confirmed who he picked to win the tournament, but many speculate that he will cheer for Alabama alumnus Justin Thomas.

Last month, Saban gave a shoutout to Thomas, who had recently won the Players Championship.

“I was really excited for my man Justin Thomas to win the Players,” Saban said. “I think it was a great win for him and to see him back to being himself is really special.”

Saban has become a regular at Augusta National over the years, playing multiple rounds and visiting as a patron.
