Masters Golf Tournament
The Masters Golf Tournament began proceedings way back in the year 1934. The seeds for the inception of the event began quite a few years earlier than that. Robert Jones, a professional player came up with an idea of creating a golf course once he had retired. Clifford Roberts joined him and the duo hired Alister Mackenzie to redesign the piece of land they had bought into a golf course which opened in 1933.
The Masters Golf Tournament started play for the first time on 22nd March, 1934 which was won by Horton Smith. The tournament was named the "Augusta National Invitational" at the time of its debut. The name was changed to the current one in 1939. The event caught the attention of the masses big time in the period during 1960 and 1978. Player, Palmer and Nicklaus went at it for the most part of that time frame and managed to win the Masters Golf Tournament a dozen times altogether.
The event is among the four biggest golf tournaments in the world which is held at the same venue every year. All other major golf events switch venues. The winner who gets the right to done the prestigious "Green Jacket" by winning the event also earns the right to compete in every major for the next five years. It is also the first major event of the year as it begins in April.
The event is played from Thursday all the way to Sunday. One of the four eighteen holes rounds is played each day. The icon Jack Nicklaus stands at the top of the list of most wins with six wins. He is followed by Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods who have both won it four times each. The three days leading up to the event are the practice rounds. They begin on Monday and last till Wednesday, a day before the actual event kicks-off. Unlike most sports, these training sessions attract thousands of visitors to the greens to see their favorite players tee off in preparation for the Major.
The Masters Golf Tournament Monday practice round is widely considered to be the most attended of all the three training days. These practice sessions have been a part of the tournament since its early days and are now considered to be integral to the whole experience.
