Masters Tickets, Schedules, and More
The Masters Tournament — aka the U.S. Masters or simply the Masters — is one of the four most prestigious annual professional golf competitions. The Masters takes place the first week of April and is always held at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. Players must be invited to participate, so it usually has a smaller field than other majors. Around 1931, amateur golf champion Bobby Jones and investment banker Clifford Roberts optioned a 365-acre nursery called Fruitland. The pair took a chance and transformed the farmland into a golfing paradise with the help of renowned course designer Alister Mackenzie. Augusta National opened in 1932 with limited play, and two years later, Roberts and Jones founded the Masters. For the first five years, the tournament was known as the "August National Invitational," but it changed to "The Masters Tournament" in 1939. Since 1949, tournament winners have been awarded a coveted green sports jacket. However, the recipient can only keep it for a year. Afterward, it must be stored in a special closet at Augusta National and only worn at the club. Since 1963, each Masters kicks off with an honorary opening tee shot usually taken by a past champion or notable golfer.

The Masters Tournament FAQs:
What is the Format of the Masters Tournament?
Unlike the British Open or the US Open, the Masters does not feature an actual qualifying play-in tournament. In order to be invited by Augusta, players must fulfill 1 of 19 possible criteria, which include past championships at the Masters or a spot in the top 50 season-ending rankings. Exemptions are rarely given out, though they do occur. Approximately 90 to 100 players qualify for the tournament each year. Over each of the four days, the players must complete 18 holes, which add up to a 72-hole par. After the first two days, players must be in the top 50 or within 10 strokes of the lead to make the cut and continue playing. Anyone below this mark is eliminated. The player with the lowest score at the end of the event is the winner. In the event of a tie, the winner is determined by a sudden-death playoff on the 18th hole. If a second hole is needed, then they'll play on the 10th. The winner of the tournament receives the Masters trophy, a gold medal, and the iconic green jacket. The remaining players receive cash prizes.

What Can I Expect if I Attend the Masters?
The Masters schedule opens with a slate of pre-tournament events and practice sessions held the Monday and Wednesday before the tournament. These events generally feature a laid-back atmosphere, including a fun par-3 contest on Wednesday, and give you the opportunity to experience the ambiance and beauty of the course. They’re also the only days in which cameras are allowed on the course. Once the tournament officially begins on Thursday, the atmosphere becomes more serious. Attendees are expected to follow the usual golf etiquette with extreme precision, including absolute silence during strokes and shots. Attendees are given leeway to walk around the course or remain at a specific hole as they wish. But if you do choose to wander, bring some comfy shoes — from the first hole to Amen Corner to the famous grandstands, the Augusta National Golf Club stretches for more than 7,700 yards.
