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. Do more research around the online store you are interested in before ordering a product from their store. If a store does not provide quality service or products, you will probably find some negative reviews published on other sites. It is best to stick to online stores with an excellent reputation.

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

3. When shopping online, always try to keep in mind the cost of shipping. Many sites offer free shipping on purchases over a certain quantity. In the event that you do have to pay shipping, make sure that it is going to fit into your budget after you've added everything for your cart. Using a full cart only to find out you cannot afford the shipping is never an exciting experience.

4. If you like an online store, subscribe to their email distribution list. You will probably receive some coupons and information about deals inside your mailbox. Check these emails regularly to stay up to date with great deals and promotional offers. Most online stores often offer free shipping or discounts on certain products.

5. Before going shopping at any online retailer, do a quick search for promotional codes. Most of the big retailers often have promotions running that are not advertised on their home page. Performing a quick hunt for these codes will allow you to insert the code at checkout to save money.
