Masters 2020 tickets sales ended in June 2019. And because this is, after all, the Masters, you couldn’t simply buy tickets. There’s an “application process” for practice rounds and tournaments. The first round of the process pre-qualified participants to purchase tickets.

If you missed out, don’t plan on buying tickets at the gate. This simply isn’t that kind of event. Remember, if you do attend the Masters, you aren’t a spectator or a “golf fan.” You’re a patron, as in patron-of-the-arts because this golf tournament goes beyond the game and becomes art. Every year.

Masters of the Art of Golf

Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, and Tiger Woods won the Masters two years consecutively. Jack Nicklaus has the most Masters wins. Tiger Woods is looking good for 2020, which would make for his sixth win, should he take the cup. Odds are good Tiger will break the record held by Jack Nicklaus for the most Masters wins (6).

One-Win Wonders by Country

The Match Made in Heaven

The 2020 Masters Tournament, 84th Edition is the first of the 4 major tournaments for the year.

One-win wonder Fuzzy Zoeller said winning the Masters was as close to heaven as he would ever get. For the Masters to be considered a divine experience is a bit of an oxymoron, but anyone that has ever played Augusta understands.
