Augusta Masters Tournament is just one of the four grand majors in golf. Scheduled for the week of March, April and May, the Augusta Masters is also the last major of the regular season, and like the other three, it's the most important to the outcome of a golfer's year.
Augusta Masters is very prestigious as the most prestigious of all the golf tours held. It is a four-day tournament that has been going on since 1875, when Tom Watson played his first championship match. This tournament is the only major held in South Carolina, a state that is a part of South Carolina's borders, but not part of it. Although the tournament does not use the state's name at its title, the course was named by Augusta National, an organization that was formed in 1875 by Thomas H. Augusta and Arthur P. Johnston.
Augusta National Golf Course is actually considered to be one of the best golf courses in the world. The golf course is designed by Jack Nicklaus, which was one of his greatest accomplishments as a golfer. This course is made up of nine holes and is the longest eighteen holes in the world. This is the reason why Augusta National Golf Club has earned the title of “Home of The Masters”. The course is divided into two parts, with three par four holes in between. The holes are marked with white tee boxes and have three different green numbers, which are used to differentiate each green.
This course is covered with a great number of trees, so that the players can see the entire golf course clearly. Also, this gives the golfers an opportunity to practice their swing. It is also a good place to practice putting, because the green numbers are easily identifiable. A player can practice the putting stroke without even having to leave the golf course.
Besides the great number of greens, the course is also a very challenging one for the golfers. There are five main water hazards that surround the course, each of them with a different size and shape. Each of these hazards is surrounded by two sand traps, which provide the golfer with the best way to practice the driving or putting strokes. As the players progress from hole to hole, the greens become easier.
The Augusta Masters is definitely a wonderful event to be part of and watch. Not only does it make the professional golfers happy, but the fans of the game as well. They really enjoy the competition, as well as the excitement that are present in the air while playing here. If you want to attend the Masters, you . . . . . . need to be in good physical shape to play this golf tournament.
