How to Attend the 2020 Masters
Historic, extraordinary, transcendent. The 2019 Masters will be marked down forever as unforgettable, following the remarkable triumph of Tiger Woods, who won his 15th major championship following an 11-year gap marked by scandal, injury, despair and struggle. It will be remembered as one of the most significant comebacks in sporting history.
Attention now gazes into the future, and the 2020 Masters is certain to be hotly anticipated, with Tiger defending his title. Experiencing the year's first men's major - and stepping onto the iconic grounds of Augusta National - is on the proverbial 'bucket list' for most golfers, who hope to sample the unique atmosphere and observe the images that have long been indelible on TV, from the spectacular view across Amen Corner, to those rolling hills on this legendary course born from the imagination of Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie.
Despite a fear of exclusivity, and the immense popularity of the event, it's easier than you may think to secure entry.
How to Attend the 2020 Masters
The most straightforward option is to enter the annual ticket lottery. This method has been available for several years now, before which it was even more challenging to make it to the Masters, with the entry period generally becoming open in May. Create an account on the website and you could apply to enter the ballot for either practice day or daily tournament tickets, which are drawn separately throughout the year, typically in June and late August. Practice round tickets costs around $65, and each person can request up to four tickets per day. Tournament rounds are priced $100 each, representing tremendous value for money, albeit a hard draw to come through.
Many people from the UK and beyond have been successful in securing passes through this route, but once successful, the onus is on them to plan the trip and arrange both flights and accommodation ahead of the 84th Masters next April. Some people enjoy that flexibility and could make their visit to Augusta part of a much wider and varied holiday.
However, if you desperately want to make it to the Masters, attractive packages are available from golf travel providers, who will ensure tickets, hotels and travel, in addition to rounds of golf depending on which level of option you choose. Hospitality is now a regular feature of these deals, with agents from the company looking after you to deliver the greatest possible experience.
