Augusta National Golf Club (WFXG) -

The 50-year-old man who was arrested Saturday for trying to enter the Augusta National Golf Club was at it again Monday, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Joseph John Murphy tried to drive through Gate 3 around 9 a.m. Monday morning by claiming he's the father of PGA golfer and Masters player Adam Scott, according to the sheriff's office. He told a deputy that he was meeting Scott to play golf. 

The deputy stopped Murphy, who was driving a white Mercedes Benz, because he recognized him from Saturday when he was arrested after trying to enter the club.

Murphy was arrested Monday and charged, for the second time, with criminal trespass.
