The Masters is one of the most cherished sporting events in the world. It’s one thing to see it on TV, but for the true experience you have to witness it in person.

Golf’s most iconic tournament, the Masters, is only a week away, and Augusta National Golf Club is prepping itself for the first major of the 2013 season.
Thousands of fans buy Masters golf tournament tickets every year for the time-honored tournament, and according to Prominent Tickets CEO Lance Patania, following the action from the course gives the event even more spectacle and grandeur.
“The Masters is one of the most cherished sporting events in the world,” Patania said. “It’s one thing to see it on TV, but for the true experience you have to witness it in person.”
Picking a favorite for the tournament is never easy, but no player enters the Masters with more positive momentum than four-time champion Tiger Woods. His reemergence has added an extra degree of buzz to the pre-Masters’ hype.
“It’s hard to deny that when Tiger Woods is playing well, golf is more interesting,” Patania said. “Tiger is still a controversial figure in sports, and whether you love him or hate him, he is certainly a captivating figure.”
Woods is back on top of the world golf rankings, sliding into the No. 1 spot ahead of Rory McIlroy just weeks ago. Woods is playing as well as he has in years, displaying the kind of all-around game that made him the face of the sport for more than a decade. With three wins already in 2013, Woods is looking to add to his 14 career major tournament titles as he continues to chase the legendary Jack Nicklaus’ mark of 18 major wins.
McIlroy, now No. 2 in the world, has had a rough start to the 2013 season, and he needs to snap out of his funk quickly if he hopes to be in contention at the Masters. After signing a highly lucrative sponsorship deal with Nike earlier this year, McIlroy has been unable to put together any solid showings on the course, failing to put together any consistent rounds and even walking off the course at the Honda Classic. One of the most talented young golfers on the planet, McIlroy has to be considered a threat to win the green jacket at Augusta National, but he will have to play much better than he has to
The defending champion Bubba Watson showed a ton of poise in his victory a year ago, and he clearly knows how to handle the tough layout of the course. Phil Mickelson has three Masters’ titles to his name, and Lefty has a win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open to his name in 2013. Brandt Snedeker is second in winnings in 2013 and has four top-5 finishes to his name this year, though missed cuts in his last two starts have to be a little worrisome. Of course, dozens of golfers in the field have a chance to surprise the experts and come away with a career-defining victory at Augusta National.
