It’s June 1. That means it’s time for golf fans around the world to proclaim “maybe this is the year I finally get picked to buy Masters tickets.”
Masters badges are some of the most coveted in sports. If you’re not one of the lucky ones who knows someone who knows someone, your options essentially come down to a) paying through the nose in the secondary ticket market or b) getting your name drawn through the Masters ticket application process.
From now until June 20, anyone can create a free account on Masters.com and then apply to purchase tickets. Wannabe patrons can select Monday or Tuesday practice rounds, the Wednesday Par 3 Contest or any of the four tournament rounds, Thursday through Sunday. The 2024 Masters is April 11-14.
“Applicants may apply for any and all days, however, are eligible to win only one day,” according to Masters.com.
If you’re lucky enough to get picked, you’ll pay $100 for each ticket if you are selected for Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday or $140 for each ticket during tournament competition.
The Masters.com ticket website says: “All applicants will be notified in late July via email when the random selection process is completed.”
It’s unknown how many tickets are distributed this way but dreams do come true. Just remember:
As a reminder, Augusta National, Inc. is the only authorized source/seller of Masters® Tickets. The resale of any Masters Ticket is strictly prohibited. Holders of Tickets acquired from third parties, by whatever means, may be excluded from attendance to the Tournament.
There are no tickets for sale at the gates. If you are interested in tickets for 2025 and beyond, you have to reapply each time.
