The Masters Golf Tournament
This year marks the 86th annual Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Starting in 1934, this iconic event is full of history and tradition. The Masters Tournament is the only major to be held consistently at the same course every year as the event is held by the Augusta National Golf Club on a course that doubles as a former plant nursery. With its colorful history, the event is considered to be one of the most prestigious tournaments in the sport.
The competition is divided into four rounds of 18 holes each. Winners of the tournament are awarded with a multi-million dollar cash prize, a trademark green jacket and gain an automatic invitation to the next three championship events this year as well as a lifetime invitation to participate in the Masters again.
