Who wants to pluck this $6.2 million house from the gloves of Gentle Ben? No, not the fearsome bear -- we're talking about golf legend "Gentle" Ben Crenshaw, who's selling his luxurious mansion in Austin, TX.

It's a 7,236-square-foot house set on an acre lot at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Tarrytown neighborhood. The grounds feature tons of trees and foliage, a pool, and a cabana. There's also a putting green -- what else would you expect from one of the best putters to ever stand over the ball?

Built in 1966, the six-bedroom home is flush with details and upgrades: built-in trophy cases (for those numerous awards, of course), a copper ceiling in the dining room, brickwork walls, and a marble floor in the entryway. Crenshaw and his wife, Julie, purchased the mansion in 1988.

Crenshaw, a 64-year-old Austin native and two-time winner of the green jacket at The Masters, bid farewell to Augusta after his 44th tournament there in April. In addition to his two Masters wins, he picked up 17 other victories on the PGA Tour over the years, racking up over $7 million in earnings.
