Masters schedule 2024

If you are looking for the Masters schedule 2024, you have found the right place. The 2024 Masters Tournament will be the 88th time this golf tournament has been played in Augusta, Georgia. The tourney dates back to 1934. The Masters is the only professional golf major championship played at the same course every year. The tournament has the smallest playing field of the major’s championships seeing between 85-100 pros invited to the tournament each year. 

When does the Masters Schedule get Started?

Similar to past years, the Masters schedule 2024 starts on a Monday and goes for seven days. Each day there is something different for fans to enjoy at the Augusta National Golf Club. On Monday and Tuesday, the pros get to take advantage of practice rounds on the course to see what’s in store for them for the rest of the week. These are the only days (including Wednesday) that cameras are allowed on the course and the atmosphere is more relaxed prior to The Masters tournament getting going. 

What Happens on Wednesday at the Masters?

Every year, the Masters holds the Par 3 contest on Wednesday. The match is played on a 9-hole, par-27 course that is separate from the main golf course. During the contest, it’s not unusual to see family members, children, or other friends caddy for the pros. In the history of the tournament, no player has won the par-3 tournament and gone on to win the “Green Jacket.” Some consider it extremely bad luck to win the par-3 tourney.

Are Masters Tickets Hard to Get for the Masters Schedule 2024?

The short answer is yes. The Masters golf tournament is one that requires you to plan to attend extremely early. If you do have the opportunity to purchase a ticket, they will likely be fairly expensive unless you have success in the Masters ticket lottery. Many fans will purchase practice-day tickets that are a bit easier to get, but still hard.

If you plan to travel in for the tournament, you will want to make your Augusta hotel reservations early as well. New ticket applications for the 2024 Masters are closed if you have not had an account before which will push you to the secondary ticket market. A ground pass will typically run around $8,000 USD at this point of the year. You can apply for the 2025 Masters at the beginning of June.

Who are the Back-Back Winners of the Masters Tournament?

Throughout the history of the Masters, there have only been three players that are back-to-back winners. No player has won three in a row, and the first player to pull off the feat was almost 30 years after the tournament got started. Jack Nicklaus was the first golfer to win the Masters in two consecutive years. He did so in 1965-66. In 1966 he won in a three player, 18-hole playoff with Gay Brewer and Tommy Jacobs. Nick Faldo accomplished the feat in 1989 and 1990. In both cases, he had to win the playoff to earn the Green Jacket. Finally, Tiger Woods was the most recent golfer to win back-to-backs in 2001 and 2002. 

What are some of the Masters Tournament Traditions?

In addition to the ceremonial first tee shot and Par-3 tournament, there are several additional traditions associated with The Masters at Augusta. Another is the Champions Dinner held on Tuesday night of Masters week. All of the previous tournament winners attend a seated dinner at the Clubhouse. The winner of the previous year’s event chooses the menu.

The dishes are typically picked to reflect the country the player is from. The most famous tradition for the Masters is the Green Jacket awarded to the winner of the tourney by the previous year’s champion. After the first year following a win, a player has to return his jacket to the club and can only wear it on the grounds of the course.
