Ticket Information

Each year Augusta National conducts a random drawing to award tickets for practice days, and also to award a very small number of tournament day tickets. See the Tickets section of Masters.com for information.

Those not lucky enough to get tickets through the annual drawing will mostly like have the secondary market — ticket brokers — as their only other option for getting tickets.

Player Invitations

The groupings and tee times for golfers entered in The Masters are made by the Augusta National tournament committee. Those pairings are released the week of the tournament, typically on the Tuesday prior to Thursday's first round.

See Masters Tee Times and Pairings for general info. See How Golfers Qualify to Play in The Masters for the ways in which a player can earn an invitation.
