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. When you're shopping online you should be sure you know who you're buying from. If you're buying with an online auction site, only purchase from people that have positive feedback. On other sites look to see if they are a reputable company by searching for reviews to them online.

2. Look for discount codes when shopping on the web. Many online stores give out reduced prices for various things and you can see them by performing a simple search. Just enter the name in the store and coupon and you could find a great discount. This can be a great way to spend less when you shop online.

3. Be extra careful when you try to find shopping deals on social media. Although it's a great way to get announcements regarding sales and coupon-codes, social media accounts can be easily impersonated or perhaps out-right hacked. Get your info on the social networking sites, then proceed directly to the main site from the store mentioned to wheel and deal.

4. If you're making an online purchase, don't hesitate to contact customer support if you have an issue. By contacting customer service before you make your order, you'll find out how helpful customer service is and exactly how quickly they respond. This can be useful information to have in the event that something goes wrong after you've made your purchase.

5. Always remember your finances and credit limits when you shop online. The virtual realm of online shopping has gotten a lot of people in serious debt. You need to take a look at online shopping in a similar manner you look at offline shopping. Never buy items online that you don't have the cash to pay for.
