A Pennsylvania man accused of trying to drive through a gate at the Augusta National Golf Club is in trouble again.

50 year old Joseph John Murphy was charged with criminal trespass after trying twice Saturday evening to drive through a gate.

Richmond County authorities say Murphy tried again Monday.  This time he reportedly told a security guard at Gate 4 he was a relative of one of the PGA golfers.  A sheriff’s deputy recognized him from the Saturday incidents and took him to jail where he was arrested again for criminal trespass.
