Masters ticket lottery

42 posts in this topic

They're now accepting entries for 2015 tickets and have recently expanded the lottery to include tournament day passes too.

Here's the link for anyone who'd like to throw their name in. https://tickets.masters.com/app/welcome

Once you establish an account, they'll email you a reminder every year.  Someone from my little group has been selected for practice round tickets 3 times over the last 10 years or so.  Not great odds, but not all that bad either.

Good luck all.....and remember, if you're selected, and can't use the tickets, where you got this info. ;-)

I won the opportunity to buy them a few years ago. $50 a pop, a great deal. I think they are $65 now but who would complain about that?

Excellent!  Thanks @David in FL ! :beer: This would be the most amazing gift for my dad if I got lucky.

Yeah, it looks like $65 for the practice rounds and $100 for tournament days.  A steal no matter which way you look at it.

Especially considering you could easily resell them for a lot more than what you pay. You'd profit enough to cover an entire Ohio golfing season, including new clubs, shoes, balls and apparel. Probably enough left over to buy some bottles of your favorite drink too and make a car payment while you're at it.

Agreed.  If I got lucky but couldn't use them, or find anybody else close who could, they'll go to David. ;)

It was interesting that you could apply for 4 tickets for practice round days, but only a pair of tickets to tournament days.  It will be a nice dilemma to have to decide who to take. ;)

I would think that I would not personally do that, but it is definitely an option. I think if I had the right offer of $3,000 per ticket like somebody else here in Ohio did... it would at least be something to consider. I honestly can't say the thought wouldn't cross my mind with the right offer if I were lucky enough to be holding them.

They really need to find a way to prevent scalping because I'm guessing a large % of the people who enter the lottery are doing it for that reason. They have your name/information when you enter the lottery- why not sync up the ticket to your name and make each person show ID as they enter the grounds to show it's their ticket?? 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.

Same, except I entered for the max on all practice rounds and tournament rounds.

I've been to both and practice rounds are awesome. Lots more interaction with the players and you can bring in your cellphone/camera. Wednesday in particular is fun for the par 3 tourney.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say.  Well, I was only going to presume it because I've never been there.  I just know that other tournaments allow cameras during practice rounds, there is more interaction, smaller crowds, etc, etc.

And for me, it would be a lot more about just being able to be at Augusta and cross that off my bucket list.

You would have a totallly different perspective of the place when watching it on television. The elevation changes are stunning. Everybody told me that before I went and it is so true.

Yea, that's why I signed up for just Tuesday, so I could use my camera in a less intense atmosphere. Plus, I do love watching it on television, so going to just the practice round wouldn't be such a bad thing for me.

I would've done Monday and Wednesday too, but wasn't terribly determined to see a practice round. If I win Tuesday, great, but what I really want is a tourney day. Still, yea, just seeing the grounds up close, bucket list write-off like @Golfingdad said, it'll be worth it.

I've been lucky enough to go twice - Thursday round 2012, and Monday this year (rainout) - it's so worth it! I'm going back next year because they are honoring the tickets from this year that got rained out.

    • Number 10. Boise, Idaho Saturday 06/24/2017. I played Quail Hollow golf Club, white tees 5727 yards. This is visually the best course I've played to date. It's built into the hills which allows for many elevated holes. The views at the top are fantastic and challenging. Yes, its short in yardage but difficult to play. There are many blind shots over hills and around corners, plus sagebrush, trees, thick rough and water. The greens vary in size from very large, to small and narrow, but they were fast and difficult to putt. I should have brought two putters, a lighter putter for the fast greens and a heavy putter for the slow greens. I only have my heavy putter. I played with three guys, the Boise guys, who were part a larger money group. I was asked which course was my favorite, and prior to playing this course, I didn't have one. Whenever I think about the places that I've gone, it's the people that I remember. We can all relate to the challenges of golf and tend to be our true selfs on the golf course. Today was no different, a lot of laughs, frustration and camaraderie. I think one of the best moments we had was when one of the Boise guys drove the green on a par 4 and 4-putted from about 12 feet. He hit a great drive over trees that blocked the green from our view. We were all happy to see his ball on the green for an eagle putt. We had all struggled with the putts, but we thought he would at least get a birdie, which would help their team score. I know he was disappointed when he 4-putted and we understand, but it was also so funny I asked him if he could replay the hole and do the same thing so that I could record it. We all had a big laugh, and that's the bond that we golfers have. I shot 49 on the front and 45 on the back, with an 8 on a par 3 and par 4, total 94.   
    • I haven't heard a pro credit PB for a win. But this guy credits the PB Pro with the win, implying and sometimes stating that PB helped him.
    • This local rule is used primarily in the UK on links courses where putting from long distances off the green is the norm. IMO it should only be used if chipping over is not a reasonable proposition.
    • (https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/94053-win-a-new-cart-from-sun-mountain) https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html I'd love to win the Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red. I like the patriotic colors.  This cart not only looks great, but it would make life so much easier.  Believe it or not, my current golf cart is actually a "pull cart".  Yes, the old fashioned kind that you just don't see anymore, but I still use it. Thus, I'd love to win a new Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap.   I thank you, my sore shoulder thanks you, and my aching back thanks you :)
