The US Masters Golf Tournament

It is played at the same location each year in Augusta, Georgia in the United States.

  • The Masters is an invitation only event with entry controlled by the Augusta National Golf Club. As a result the number of players taking part is smaller than in the other major championships.

  • The Masters was established in 1934 by Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones who also helped design the Augusta course along side course architect Alister MacKenzie. Each year the tournament organizers may adjust with the length of the course as well as the placement of some bunkers in order to uphold the original design philosophy.

  • Competitors begin by playing in groups of three for 36 holes over two days. After this players are eliminated, or fail to 'make the cut' to reduce the field.

  • As well as a substantial cash prize the winner is also given a coveted 'green jacket' which is the same as the official attire worn by members of Augusta National while on the club grounds and each winner becomes an honorary member of the club.

  • US Masters champions are automatically invited to play in the other three major championships, the US Open, The British Open and the PGA Championship for the next five years and a lifetime invitation to take part in the Masters.

  • The Masters has a tradition of honouring amateur golf and invites winners of the most prestigious amateur tournaments around the world to take part.

  • Jack Nicklaus has won more Masters Tournaments than any other golfer , winning six times between 1963 and 1986. Other multiple winners include Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods.

This prestigious event is one of the pinnacles of golf and a must-see spectacle for sports fans all over the world.

Tips For Shopping Online

1. Pay close attention for potential sales online starting as soon as Wednesday. Many brick and mortar stores do sales on the weekends, and to compete, many online retailers have moved their sales days up by a couple of days. You can often find exceptional mid-week bargains with just a little online research.

2. After you have found the items you want, check to see if there are any coupons offered. There are many websites that offer coupons. These coupons can be a certain percent off, a certain dollar amount off or free delivery. Many times several coupons are given. If this is the situation, choose one that will save you the most money.

3. Shop around when you shop online. You might find that prices for certain items can vary greatly from one store to another. To be sure you get the best deal, look at some different stores to discover their prices, as well as shipping charge. This will allow you to get the very best deal you can.

4. When you shop online, it's best to check around to find the best price. Shopping online will make it very easy to find the best price for virtually any items. While shopping around, ensure that you only glance at the prices from places where you'd feel comfortable buying from. Even if a price is great, it won't matter if you don't want to order from that place.

5. If you're purchasing clothes or shoes online, be careful with the sizing. Some items typically run smaller or larger than normal. Some shopping sites will advertise if an item runs true to size. If the site doesn't list anything about sizing, glance at the reviews. In most cases, if an item is running larger or smaller, the reviewers will let you know.
