You get to take pictures, the players and their caddies are relaxed and interact with fans. Many of the players are working with their coaches (depends on what part of the season they're in). I really enjoy practice rounds - would jump at the opportunity -

I got to pick from whatever day I chose and I picked sunday. Other days are more fun but let's be honest Sunday is when history is made. It was a hard choice between Thursday and Sunday just because of the honorary tee off. But practice days would be fun if you are really into the players and coaches and caddies and stuff

Golf Digest has a few good tips for people visiting the area .....you might be disappointed if you've never been to Augusta because the Augusta National is very different in appearance than the rest of the town.  Washington Road outside the front of Augusta National may be one of the biggest eyesore streets that I've seen in a town. But once you get inside, you think you're in another world.

 

 

Here's the link to the GD guide:
