2015 Masters Tournament
This isn't some tiny little golf tournament that you'll forget about in a week's time.
This is the Masters, arguably the most followed golfing event of the year and a tournament that brings together all of the
top golfers in the world for a stunning four days of a classic sport at one of the most beautiful courses in the world. There
is a reason why fans have been flocking to Augusta for a long time, and it definitely isn't because there is a lack of passion
and excitement from both the golfers and players alike. After Bubba Watson lit up the gallery with an amazing display in 2014,
taking the green jacket with a dominant eight-under par, the rest of the field will be looking to make their run at one of
the most coveted titles in all of professional golf.
Of course, it helped for Watson in 2014 that he had been there
before, as he previously ran the table and took the green jacket as recently 2012, which he won in a playoff against Louis
Oosthuizen. Watson ended up being the first golfer to win the Masters two different times in three years since Phil Mickelson
pulled it off in 2004 and 2006, and he joins a very exclusive club of legendary golfers who have won the Masters more than
once. The beauty of golf, though, is that it isn't only about the winners, as players like Sweden's Jonax Blixt and the U.S'
Jordan Spieth both gave Watson a run for his money with some stunning rounds of their own. Add it all together and it was
just another amazing golf tournament that reminded fans that it doesn't get any better than the Masters, a place that separates
the good golfers from the great ones and is known to live up to the hype every single year.
Keeping with the eight-decade
old tradition, the Masters in 2015 will once again be held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, one of the most
famous spots for golf in the world for a reason you have to see first-hand to truly appreciate. The tournament action unfolds
in Mid-April and you can be sure that all of the eyes of the golf world will be focused on Augusta all weekend long. There
is much more going on in the days leading up to the tournament as fans have the opportunity of being treated to practice round
the week prior, giving you even more access to these world-class golfers. Whether you plan on attending one day or every day
of the Masters, it is sure to be an experience you will never forget and full of unbelievable moments you'll be buzzing about
long after the final round.
Many of the biggest names in the history of the sport have
won at the Masters including Ben Hogan, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Fuzzy Zoeller, Arnold Palmer, and more. This year's list
of players is sure to be filled with many of the best golfers in the world looking to prove their mettle. Clearly the luminaries
of professional golf feel that this is an important tournament and know that it will always take place on one of the best
courses in the world. When you set foot in the grandstands you will understand loud and clear why this one has such a reputation.
Whether it is a golfer hoping to make the world take notice or an established veteran aiming to cement his legacy, you can
be sure that these golfers will be giving it everything they have throughout the long weekend, making this one of those events
you definitely don't want to miss if you're a golf lover.
The Masters is one of the four
major professional golf tournaments on the PGA Tour and has been held every year since 1934, giving it a long and storied
history filled with some of the most famous moments in the sport. The course at Augusta had opened the previous year and the
tournament was known as the Augusta National Invitational Tournament for the first five years in which it was held. Since
1949, the winner of the Maters has been awarded a well-known green jacket, which is only allowed to be worn outside of the
club by the reigning champion. For golfers, this has largely become the holy of holies, and a time-honored tradition that
captures the essence of golf in full fell swoop.
There has never been a better time to
get off the couch and make it out to a great golf course that will make your jaw drop as you watch the most talented golfers
in the world square off against one another with everything on the line. When a great golfer is charging up the fairway with
the buzz of the crowd steadily growing, you'll understand how much more dynamic the experience is to be there when it's all
on the line and the tournament could still go many different ways. Augusta isn't just your average golf club either, and you'll
be soaking in a legacy of greatness that you're just not going to find anywhere else, providing the perfect backdrop for a
sports experience that could very well be recanting for a long, long time.
Do you know
that Horton Smith won two of the first three Masters?
Back in 1934 and 1936, Smith ran the table and took down the big
prize, getting this tournament off to a great start and cementing his name in the annals of other legends that would come
to play at this world renowned event. From there, many different golfers have won this one more than once, including legends
like Jack (do we even need a last name?), Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ben Hogan and more, giving you plenty of reasons to
come out and see who the next icon of the golf world is going to be as the top players hope to shoot their way to the top
of the leaderboard at Augusta.
