The 2017 Masters
This year the Masters will take place the week of April 3 in Augusta, Georgia. Monday and Tuesday will see practice rounds, while on Wednesday the Par 3 Contest will take place. The tournament gets underway Thursday, and runs until Sunday, April 9. Fans interested in attending have a variety of options when it comes to ticket packages, they could purchase a badge for the full week, or just purchase for a single day. There are also 4-day and 2-day badges around the actual days of the tournaments.
How much do Masters tickets cost?
The Masters is the most in-demand golf tournament of the year, and one of the most in-demand sporting events in the world. Tickets for the practice session typically cost hundreds of dollars on the secondary market, and the competition round tickets will typically go for around $1,500 each, although that price can move up significantly if the demand is higher or supply is lower.
How do I get Masters tickets?
It is nearly impossible to get Masters tickets on the primary market. While the practice round tickets are given out in a lottery, very few competition round tickets are made available to the general public. Because of this many fans must turn to the secondary market, where tickets are available for all the practice rounds and competition rounds.
Who are the favorites this year?
The odds favor star golfers like Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, although as many tournaments have shown in the past really anyone can win. It would be a surprise to see last year's winner, Danny Willett, take home the green jacket yet again.
