The Masters - The Status And Style Destination

Posted on February 26, 2020

Going to the Masters in Augusta is not like attending any other sporting event. It's a way bigger deal than that and you absolutely should make the most of it. Don't miss out on the chance to make it the best trip it can be by doing it in style.

What to wear

Officially the suggested dress code to attend the Masters is 'appropriate clothes and shoes' with a lot of golf casual about. But you're at the Masters so why not live it up? In the early days of the Masters everything was much more formal. Men attending the Masters would invariably wear a tie, coat, and hat. That may be a little too formal for nowadays but this is still a wonderful occasion to break out the best in golf casual attire. For the ladies it's a great opportunity to dress up. Remember that it can be cool in the mornings at the Masters so considering layering. Having some fashionable rain attire to hand is also a good idea.

Where to stay

The are plenty of great places to stay during the Masters, and many hotels offer courtesy shuttles to the tournament. But don't fall into the trap of thinking you can find those upscale lodgings you are after at the last minute. Remember you are not the only person looking to live it up at the Masters. The key here is to get things in place early and let the other person who left things until the last minute be the disappointed one

Food and nightlife

When you are away from the links is another time to indulge in some stylish living. Augusta has no shortage of excellent restaurants and clubs and bars to keep you entertained. It's a lively town where excellent music is never too far away. Get ahead of the game by looking into it long before you arrive.

Plan well and plan early so that every aspect of your Masters experience is a premium one. Major Sports Augusta - We are YOUR TICKET IN!

You had to be there - Why seeing is believing at The Masters

Posted on February 4, 2020

One of the great things about professional sports is that, in addition to seeing your favorite participants playing at the top of their game, occasionally something magical happens. Golf is no exception and the US Masters Tournament has seen more than its fair share of wow! There are some moments so amazing you just had to be there to get the full effect. Plus you get a lifetime of bragging rights.

The Shot Heard Around The World

We start with the legendary 'shot heard around the world' by golfing legend Gene Sarazen. We'll forgive you if you weren't there in person as this took place way back in 1935, which was only the second year of the Masters Tournament. At the 15th hole Sarazen sent the ball 235 yards to score a double eagle. His amazing stroke was soon dubbed the 'shot heard around the world' and it helped put Augusta and the US Masters on the map.

Hometown Boy Larry Mize Does Good

The 1987 Masters was full of surprises when Larry Mize found himself in a sudden-death playoff with Seve Ballesteros and Greg Norman. Despite being the underdog, Mize was destined to be forever known for a spectacular shot when he chipped to birdie. One missed putt from Norman later, and Mize had won the famed green jacket. Better yet, Mize comes from Augusta! Amazing stories don't get any better than when it's a hometown boy who triumphs on the big stage.

Tiger Woods' Stunning Comeback

The 2019 Masters surely stands as one of the great comeback stories in sports. It had everything: a aging superstar past his prime who had been in the news for all the wrong reasons, and little to no expectation that he would do well. Despite health and other problems, Woods fought his way to a stunning victory in Augusta where it had all begun for him so many years beforehand.

Don't risk being left out the next time there is a jaw-dropping moment at the Masters Tournament. Major Sports Augusta - We are YOUR TICKET IN!
