Over the years, Augusta National has witnessed legendary moments, from Jack Nicklaus’s record victories to Tiger Woods’s historic 1997 win. Amen Corner, a challenging stretch of holes, adds to the tournament’s allure. With a rich history and global viewership, the Masters remains a pinnacle event, where the world’s best golfers vie for glory on Augusta’s hallowed turf.

It is the one tournament without fail each year that I’ll try to watch every single shot. Mrs StripeyGreenTV knows that the sofa is renamed for these four days as The Masters Couch!

The History of the Masters

The US Masters Golf Tournament is one of the most prestigious and iconic events in the world of golf. It has a rich and fascinating history that dates back to the early 20th century. The first tournament took place in 1934 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, and it has since become synonymous with tradition, excellence, and the arrival of spring in the golfing world.

Clifford Roberts and legendary amateur golfer Bobby Jones are credited with the founding of Augusta National Golf Club in 1933. The idea of hosting a major tournament was conceived as a way to showcase the beauty of the course and to attract attention to the club. The first Masters Tournament was won by Horton Smith, who secured victory with a score of 4 under par. A complete list of winners can be found below.

One of the distinctive features of the Masters is its invitation only format. Unlike other major golf championships, the Masters invites a select field of top players based on their past performances, ensuring a highly competitive and elite group of participants. This exclusivity has contributed to the tournament’s allure over the years. Golfers are sent traditional RSVP invites in the months building up to the tournament. Imagine the feeling of receiving the special invitation!

Masters Green Jacket

The iconic single breasted, three button green jacket tradition began in 1949 when Sam Snead was awarded a jacket to signify his victory. Since then, the green jacket has become an enduring symbol of success at Augusta National. The previous year’s champion has the honour of presenting the new champion with the coveted green jacket in a ceremony that is watched by millions around the world.

This video shows 75 years of the great Masters green jacket tradition from 1949-2023.

The origin of the green jacket can be traced back to Bobby Jones, one of the founders of Augusta National. While visiting the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Jones observed that the captains adorned themselves in red jackets. Inspired by this tradition, he envisioned a similar distinctive attire for members of Augusta National Golf Club.

The jackets must be kept on the grounds at Augusta. The ONLY exception to this is for the winner, who can take it home but must return it to Augusta the following year.

Memorable Moments in Masters Golf

The tournament has witnessed countless memorable moments and legendary performances. From Jack Nicklaus’s record six victories to Tiger Woods’s historic triumph in 1997, where he became the youngest champion in Masters history. The Masters is a stage for golf’s greatest players to etch their names into the annals of history.

My favourite moment is Jon Rahm winning in 2023 on Seve‘s birthday, the 40th anniversary of Seve’s last Masters win. In close second is Tiger Woods’ phenomenal chip on 16 in the final round of the 2005 event.

Tiger Woods incredible chip on 16 in 2015. Goosebumps!

Augusta National

Augusta National has undergone numerous changes and renovations over the years to enhance the challenge for the players while preserving the course’s unique character. The iconic Amen Corner, comprising the 11th, 12th, and 13th holes, is a particular focal point known for its difficulty and the potential to determine the outcome of the tournament. For me, seeing the Azaleas signals the real start to the golf calendar and it’s the first date in my diary each year!

The Masters has also been a pioneer in golf broadcasting. The introduction of televised coverage in 1956 allowed fans around the world to witness the drama unfold. Today, the tournament is a global spectacle with millions tuning in to watch the best golfers compete for the coveted green jacket.

As the US Masters continues to evolve and captivate audiences, its storied history remains an integral part of golf’s legacy. It showcases the sport’s finest traditions and providing a platform for greatness to unfold on the pristine fairways of Augusta National.

Snowmen at Augusta

Phil Mickelson etched his name into golfing lore with a memorable snowman during the 2020 US Masters. With aspirations of becoming the oldest Masters champion ever, Mickelson embarked on his third round at Augusta just four shots off the lead. However, his hopes of glory were dashed as he encountered a tumultuous start.

Despite opening with a par, Mickelson endured a string of five bogeys in six holes. Yet, he showed resilience by notching a couple of birdies to stay in the hunt, until misfortune struck on the 15th hole. A tee shot gone awry into the pine straw forced Mickelson into a risky punch-out, resulting in an unfortunate ricochet off a tree. Despite his efforts to recover, his subsequent shots found water hazards. His struggles culminated in a triple-bogey eight on the hole, cementing his place in golfing annals with the iconic snowman.

How much is the Prize Money for the Masters?

In 2023 the total purse was worth $18m, up from $15m in 2022. Jon Rahm won the tournament taking home the $3,240,000 first prize, and the coveted Green Jacket.

Why do Amateur Golfers not Win Prize Money at The Masters?

Amateur golfers do not win prize money in professional tournaments like the Masters due to the distinction between amateur and professional status in the sport. The essence of amateurism lies in the pure love for the game, emphasising sportsmanship over financial gain.

Accepting prize money would compromise this status. Amateurs, often college players or those who compete at a high level without earning a living from golf, maintain their eligibility for various competitions, scholarships, and collegiate programs by eschewing monetary rewards. The Masters, steeped in tradition, upholds this division, ensuring that the pursuit of victory for amateurs remains a passion-driven journey rather than a pursuit of financial gain.

In 2023 amateur Sam Bennett would have won $324,000 for his tied 16th place, but due to his amateur status he was unable to claim any prize money. In 2024 he will be able to claim his winnings because Bennett turned professional in June 2023. But only if he qualifies for the tournament and then makes the cut.

Amidst the pristine beauty of the course, players, including Masters competitors and honorary invitees, navigate a specially designed Par 3 course, often accompanied by friends and family.

First held in 1960 the Par 3 Tournament, with its picturesque setting and friendly camaraderie, offers a refreshing and memorable contrast to the serious competition that unfolds in the days to come. It’s worth noting though that nobody has ever won the Par 3 Contest and then gone on to win The Masters in the same year!

Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

The Pimento Cheese Sandwich has become a beloved and iconic tradition, steeped in the history and charm of Augusta. The sandwich’s origins trace back to the tournament’s early years, around the 1960s.

Pimento cheese, a creamy spread made from a mixture of cheese, mayonnaise, and chopped pimentos, gained popularity in the Southern United States. As the story goes, the sandwich was introduced as an affordable and convenient concession item at the Masters, catering to both the patrons’ palates and their pockets.

The simplicity, affordability, and deliciousness of the Pimento Cheese Sandwich quickly endeared it to golf fans. Over the years, it has become a staple and an integral part of the Masters experience. The sandwich perfectly embodies the tournament’s commitment to tradition and its unique blend of elegance and down-to-earth charm.

For many attendees, enjoying a Pimento Cheese Sandwich while watching the world’s best golfers navigate Augusta National’s hallowed grounds has become a cherished ritual, adding a flavourful layer to the Masters’ rich tapestry of traditions. The Pimento Cheese Sandwich has transcended its humble origins to become a symbol of the tournament’s distinctive atmosphere and a culinary delight for golf enthusiasts.

Masters Menu

Famously, the Masters Menu is the most affordable in world golf. Augusta National insist on keeping the prices of the food and drink low. This ensures they offer their patrons the very best experience. In 2023 the most expensive sandwich was just $3 and the priciest alcoholic drink $6.

Masters Champions Dinner

Every year at Augusta National Golf Club, a culinary tradition unfolds alongside the blooming azaleas and immaculate fairways. The Masters Champions Dinner. This exclusive gathering, reserved for past winners of the prestigious green jacket, is a unique blend of golfing prestige and gastronomic excellence. The dinner is traditionally held on the Tuesday before the main tournament begins on Thursday.

Initiated by 1952 Masters champion Ben Hogan, the Champions Dinner has evolved into a tradition that showcases the diverse tastes and backgrounds of golf’s elite. Each year, the defending champion has the honour of selecting the menu, offering a glimpse into their personal preferences and cultural influences.

From the traditional to the avant-garde, the Champions Dinner menu reflects the individuality of the Masters champions. Icons like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer have chosen classic American fare, while others, such as Phil Mickelson, have opted for a more eclectic international flavour.

The Masters Champions Dinner is not only a celebration of golfing achievement, but also a testament to the camaraderie among these champions. The green jacket-clad attendees share a meal, swapping stories of triumphs and challenges on the Augusta National course. The tradition fosters a sense of continuity and connection among the champions, creating a unique bond that transcends the generations.

The Masters Golf Tournament on the App Store & Social Media

As well as keeping an eye on the various social media accounts below, it’s well worth downloading the Masters App where you can keep up to date with all the latest news, scores & statistics, and also watch live broadcasts throughout the tournament. You can download this from the Apple Store or Google Play.

The Masters also have their own YouTube channel where you can catch some historical clips including this video of Jon Rahm’s 2023 win on Seve’s birthday, which I have to admit made me very emotional!

Don’t Call Them Fans or Spectators!

The spectators at The Masters are referred to as Patrons! The concept of “patrons” emerged with the inauguration of Augusta National in the 1930s. The term was driven by co-founder Clifford Roberts’s vision to acknowledge spectators as active participants in an immersive experience. Roberts aimed to redefine the spectator experience akin to dining at a fine restaurant or attending a theatrical performance, rather than merely occupying a seat.

Who Has Won the Masters the most times?

Jack Nicklaus has won the masters a record 6 times. More than any other golfer in history. Tiger Woods is hot on his heels with 5 green jackets.

Multiple Masters Winners

There have been 18 golfers that have won the Masters more than once.
