Could be good. Good luck to you. 

 

I think I'll still go if I get a practice round ticket.

Ditto here, but I'm not counting on anything.

The Masters makes it clear that only a select few tournament day tickets  are available through the lottery. I'm guessing it's a 1 in 1000+ odds or worse. If you enter the lottery it should primarily be for the intention of getting a practice round ticket, because those are a bit more realistic.

 

As I've said before, I wish the tournament would find a way so that only the lottery winners and (and their guests) could use the tickets. Cut down on the scalpers and those who enter just for the hell of it, and those of us who would actually go any day of the week would have much better chances of winning. You already go through strict security as you enter the grounds, just have individual names on the tickets and check IDs as people enter. It wouldn't be a perfect system but it would help a lot.

Still waiting for my rejection....or acceptance.

 

Now my mind is going wild with possibilities as a check the email every 5 minutes!

Yes it's not a perfect solution and some people would find ways around it, but it would cut down on a lot of the scalping.


I don't like it.  If they are fairly your tickets (you got them under the same rules as anyone else), you should have the right to do whatever you want with them.  go, give them away, sell them, burn them, fold them into paper boats, whatever....

I agree with this. Sorry, but if I can't make it and somebody is offering me $4,000+ for both of my Sunday tickets (they've gone for several thousand each in the past)... I'm most likely going to sell them without hesitation.

Exactly, and so is 99% of the country-that's why the lottery odds are so bad.  Don't promote a system where scalpers in their mother's basements are profiteering on an event they never plan to attend by putting in for the lottery just to turn around and sell the tickets on stubhub. Promote a system where only people who want to attend the event put in for tickets- I don't really understand why that is an objectionable viewpoint (at least among fellow golf fans).
