One of the most notable tournaments on the PGA Tour that many people know about whether you’re fluent in golf or not is the Masters Tournament held in Augusta, Georgia from April 11-14. Players from the whole field compete all year just to make the cut to play in the Masters. It has often been said that it’s the most beautiful yet challenging course during the PGA Tour year. The payout from winning the Masters is the highest earning all year. Many people watch the Masters just to bet on it because it is that noticed.
Patrick Reed won last years Masters and received an earning of $11,000,000 during the 72 hole shootout holding off Rickie Fowler and Jordan Speith.
Tiger Woods has been on the bubble the last few tournaments but hasn’t produced scores that he’d like to see, however this past weekend at The Players (TPC Sawgrass) he gave some jitters to the top performing golfers during the early rounds and finished at -7. Tiger has a couple of weeks to prepare for the biggest tournament of the year. He’ll be playing at the WGC-Dell Match Play- a tournament he has won several times but has not competed in since 2013. I like Tiger’s chances at Augusta, a course he is very familiar with and has played many times during his career. I would like to see Tiger in the final pairing heading into Sunday.
