Dave Loggins wrote the song "Augusta," which is played on a loop during CBS' coverage of the Masters. He's a member of the National Songwriters Hall of Fame, and he joins the show to talk about how he came up with the music. Turns out Loggins hatched it in a moment of inspiration (and awe) while walking from the 16th hole to the 18th, and then up to the clubhouse.

"It doesn't really liken to any other genre of music," Loggins says. "It just kind of fell out ... it just started hitting me left and right."
