Just hours remain before the 2014 Masters Tournament tees off. There’s not much time to fine-tune one’s game, but that’s not stopping reigning U.S. Open champion Justin Rose.

The Brit was working on his chipping and putting Wednesday evening and posted a couple videos to his Instagram account. But he was chipping and putting with help from a billiards table. That’s one way to prepare for the hard and fast Augusta National greens.
