The Masters is the premiere golf event of the year. Each year, the best golfers in the world come down to compete for the coveted green jacket. In 2017, the 81st edition of The Masters will be held from Thursday April 6th to Sunday April 9th at its usual location, the beautiful course at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta Georgia.
The tournament is the first of golf’s four major championships of the year. The U.S Open, The Open Championship, and The PGA Championship all follow The Masters in 2017, although no other major is quite as important as this one. It remains the smallest field out of the four major championships, with a number of different ways to qualify. It is an official money event with a purse of $10 million, with last year’s winner Danny Willett earning $1.8 million.
