The Masters Golf Tournament

The 2020 Masters Tournament will be played at Augusta National Golf Club from April 9 to 12, 2020. Here are 11 things you should know about this revered and highly anticipated golf tournament.

1. The Masters and Augusta National Golf Club were founded by famed golfer, Bobby Jones. The first Masters, which was held in 1934, was won by Horton Smith. The Masters is the only major golf tournament played on the same course every year. It is an invitational tournament, with each winner receiving a lifetime invitation to play.

2. Bobby Jones, who only played golf about three months of the year, is probably the best part-time golfer ever. He retired from competitive golf at the age of 28 after winning four U.S. Opens and three British Opens, as well as six major amateur championships. In 1930, he won that era's grand slam by taking the U.S. and British Opens and the U.S. and British Amateur golf tournaments. About golf, Bobby Jones famously said, "competitive golf is played mainly on a five and a half inch course, the space between your ears."

3. Jack Nicklaus won six Masters, more than any other player in history. He is also the oldest golfer to win The Masters (with his 1986 win at the age of 46).

4. Tiger Woods is the youngest Masters winner. He took the title in 1997 when he was 21 and has won three more Masters since then.

5. Jack Nicklaus probably holds more Masters records than any other player. Among his records are most wins; oldest winner; most top five, top 10 and top 25 finishes; lowest senior score on 72 holes; most career eagles and birdies; lowest career scoring average for 100 or more rounds; and most cuts made.

6. It is well known that the winner of the Masters is awarded a green jacket, although that wasn't always so. The first green jacket went to Sam Snead in 1949. The winner is allowed to take the green jacket home for the year he reigns as The Masters Tournament champion. Then he must return it to August National Golf Club, where it will be kept and where he can wear it whenever he visits the Club.

7. Each hole on the August National course where the Masters is played is named after a plant or shrub. The first hole is called tea olive, the second, pink dogwood, the third, flowering peach and so on. The term Amen Corner refers to holes 11, 12 and 13. They were given the name, which derives from a jazz recording, "Shouting at Amen Corner," by a Sports Illustrated writer in 1958, when they were critical factors in Masters Tournament play.

8. Membership in the August National Golf Club is by invitation only. The only U.S. President who was a member of the club was Dwight Eisenhower.

9. It is harder to get tickets to the Masters than to any other major golf tournament. In fact, some people consider Masters tickets the hardest tickets to obtain in any sport. Masters practice tickets are more readily available.

10. Augusta National Golf Club sets strict rules for television coverage of the Masters Tournament. Typically, only back-nine play is shown live on television (although some taped front-nine highlights may be aired).

11. In 2020, the winner of the Masters took home $1.35 million. When Jack Nicklaus won his first Masters in 1963, he banked $20,000.
