Riverdale, New Jersey (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
New Jersey based ticket broker Select-A-Ticket is pleased to announce tickets are now available for The Masters Tournament in Augusta, GA to be played April 8-14, 2013. One of the longest-running traditions in American sports is just a few short weeks away. Selling tickets since 1978, Select-A-Ticket reports that tickets to the tournament traditionally sell out in March often leaving nothing left for the last minute buyers. The Masters Tournament, held at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, is held in early April every year and features the best golfers in the game.
The tradition of the Masters goes back to the 1930s when one of the greatest players in the history of the game, Bobby Jones, invited many of the top golfers of the time to visit Augusta and compete for the top prize.
Tickets to the Masters are available for those who want to see the tradition first-hand. One of the best parts of the Masters is the quality of the field. As one of the four major championships in professional golf, the Masters has one of the strongest fields in all of golf. Participants at the tournament have to rank in the very top of the World Golf Rankings, be a winner on one of the major worldwide tours or be a past champion of the event. Additionally, a few amateur golfers who have won important events like the US Amateur or the British Amateur are invited to play. This last fact keeps up with the tradition of Bobby Jones, who never turned professional in spite of winning multiple US Opens and the British Open.
Those who purchase Masters tickets can see some of the all-time greats in golf. Past winners of the Masters who continue to play in the field include Tom Watson, Raymond Floyd and Bernhard Langer. The current stars also come out in full force at Augusta. Some of the favorites this year will be Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and last year's winner, Bubba Watson. No one should overlook multiple winners like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Combined, these two golfers have won seven of the last 16 tournaments at Augusta.
Attending the Masters provides an up-close look at one of the most famous golf courses in the world. Augusta National is a very exclusive club that allows only a very few to experience its beauty personally. Patrons at the Masters can see the Georgia Pines and the azalea bushes as they come into bloom while walking the same fairways that golf greats like Hogan, Palmer, Nicklaus and Snead walked to the adoration of thousands of fans.
“There are few traditions as special as the Masters, and those with tickets can experience the tradition in a way that no others can,” says Mark Gibbons of Select-A-Ticket.
