Who do you think will win the 2007 Masters Golf Tournament?
I'm getting 14-1 odds on Vijay and 7.5-1 on Phil. I'm also getting 11-1 on the Big Easy, so I put 100 each on these three golfers. Tiger is going off at almost even money, so I scratched him. Tiger usually has one bad round, and that comes either Friday or Saturday. If any one of Vijay, Phil or Ernie can keep each round between -1 and -3, then I have no doubt I'll be collecting fairly handsome return on my wager. If Tiger wins, I'm out $300, but Tiger is just not getting off the teebox well enough right now to win a major. My wager is essentially a bet that Tiger does not win. If I'm right, then one of these other three guys will do it. BTW...Chris DiMarco is going off at 50-1...but he always finds a way to mess up in Augusta, so you gotta stay away from that guy.
Why is the Masters the most prestigious golf tournament?
There are several reasons:
-- it is one of the 4 'majors'
-- it is played on legendary course
-- it is tough to get into the field (there are several ways to qualify)
-- the club runs the event and they control everything.
In theory yes. The Masters extends invitations to the 4 Amateurs every year:
:The winner of the USGA Mid Amateur Championship
:The winner of the USGA Public Links Championship
:The winner and runner up of the US Amateur
There is nothing that prohibits a women from competing in any of these events. In fact several years ago Michelle Wie nearly earned a spot by getting to the finals of the US Publinx. The Masters stated at that time that they would extend her an invite if she won.
How many people attend the Masters Golf tournament?
Augusta National is very secretive about all of their numbers. They never disclose attendance, numbers of members, who the members are, the cost of the membership, pictures of the interior of the clubhouse, who taylors their green jacket, the cost of the green jacket and until recent years wouldn't publish the prize money list. That was done by the PGA.
What is the difference in general admission and grounds tickets for the MASTERS golf tournament?
There are four types of badges for the Masters Tournament:
* Practice rounds. Anyone can apply for the Monday through Wednesday badges. It's a lottery with no waiting list.
* Patron badges. There's a long waiting list for badges that will gain you admission to all four rounds of the Masters. It's worth applying for.
* Trophy Room. These will gain you admission to the grounds surrounding the clubhouse, an outdoor bar, and a dining room with a great buffet. Trophy Room tickets are restricted to player's families, the media and special guests of the Augusta National.
* Clubhouse. Only members, their immediate families and past Masters champions get these.

Who are the players on the waiting list for the 2008 Masters golf tournament ?
If you mean "alternates," then there are none. The Masters qualifying criteria does not mandate a minimum number of entrants. This year, 93 golfers qualified. Below is the link to the field although Martin Kaymer, Justin Leonard and Peter Lonard are not listed just yet. All three qualified by virtue of their position inside the Top 50 in the World Ranking today.
The winner of this week's Houston Open will also gain entry if he isn't already eligible.
Why doesn't the Masters Golf Tournament allow more players?
It was never supposed to be a "major". It was just an invitational set up by Bobby Jones. Although, the tournament started in 1934, it was not recognized as a major until the 50's.
The invitational nature has permitted them to continue to invite amateurs in honor of America's greatest amateur athlete of all time, Bobby Jones.
Where one can find the best resource and news about The Masters Tournament golf?
hope this helps
The Masters Tournament, which is commonly referred to as The Masters or The US Masters (outside the United States), is one of four major championships in men's professional golf and the first of the four to be played each year. The final round of the Masters is always scheduled for the second Sunday in April. Unlike the other major championships, the Masters is held every year at the same location, Augusta National Golf Club, a private golf club in the city of Augusta, Georgia, USA. The Masters was started by Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones, who designed Augusta National with legendary course architect Alister MacKenzie.
The Masters is an official money event on the PGA Tour, the PGA European Tour and the Japan Golf Tour. In line with the other majors, winning the Masters gives a golfer several privileges which make his career more secure. Masters champions are automatically invited to play in the other three majors (the U.S. Open, the Open Championship (British Open), and the PGA Championship) for the next five years, and earn a lifetime invitation to the Masters. They also receive membership on the PGA Tour for the following five seasons and invitations to the Players Championship for five years. In 2007, the prize fund was US$7.25 million

Patrons who attend the Masters Golf Tournament must follow certain rules. What are they?
If you've ever played a round of golf at a fancy country club, you know how to behave at a professional golf tournament. Additionally, do as you're told by the workers and volunteers. You can tell who they are because they are all dressed alike and are standing on the opposite side of the ropes, keeping distance between the players and the crowds. If they raise their hands or the quiet sign, that means the crowd should be quiet. Cheer at appropriate times, but otherwise be mindful of any noise you might be making. Not every tournament has a stadium-like atmosphere.
Be courteous to the players, as they are competing Thursday through Sunday. They're trying to make a living just like you and I do Monday through Friday. To be successful in their line of work, they need to be able to concentrate. A single distraction may cost a player a half a million dollars. If you're interested in getting right up next to the players and chatting with them, tournament rounds are not the right time. I suggest autograph seekers and picture-takers attend practice rounds and pro-ams. Players are generally more approachable and will sign autographs and interact with spectators while playing.
What would a 1997 Masters Golf Tournament folding chair signed by Tiger Woods be worth today?
Wow... that is special. Here's the thing. It really depends on where you sell it and if the right person is there. Some collectors of Tiger Woods memorabilia are willing to pay quite a bit for 97 masters pieces in good condition. signed and unsigned. I would not be suprised if something like that sold for $5-10,000. Again, it could go for much more if the right person were buying. I noticed that there is a 97 masters flag on Ebay right now signed by Tiger going for $16,000. It just goes to show you how collectible this kind of thing is. Make sure you take good care of it.
(check out the flag!)

How risky is it to sell tickets to the Masters golf tournament on Ebay?
Augusta is a bit......conservative ( thats the only word I could think of that would not get bleeped) I would imagine that not only could they check tickets against a master list ...but also ask for ID upon entry to the grounds. It is after all....Private Property
What are the rules for exemptions to the Masters golf tournament?
If you win The Masters you have a lifetime invitation to play in The Masters. You also have a five year exemption from qualifying for the US Open, The Open Championship, the PGA Championship and The Players Championship. You also receive a membership on the PGA Tour for the next five years. Winning The Masters more than once does not enhance your lifetime invitation to play in The Masters but it does reset the five year exemption on the other four tournaments I mentioned and it also renews your PGA Tour membership for five more years.
Why does the winner of the Masters Golf Tournament get a green jacket?
Q. Why Are Masters Champions Presented with a Green Jacket?
Each year, the winner of The Masters is presented with the famous "Green Jacket." Slipping on the green jacket is the golden moment for many winners of the tournament. But how did a green jacket come to be such a big deal? What is the story behind the vaunted Green Jacket?
A. Let's face it: if you saw someone walking around in public in a shamrock green jacket, you'd probably think that person was severely fashion-challenged. Shamrock green jackets are, well, ugly.
But the Green Jacket presented to the Masters champion is one beautiful piece of outerwear. The tradition of the Green Jacket at Augusta National Golf Club dates to 1937. That year, members of the club wore green jackets during the tournament so that fans in attendance could easily spot them if they needed to ask questions.
According to the official website of The Masters:
"Jackets were purchased from the Brooks Uniform Company, New York City ... Members were not initially enthusiastic about wearing the warm, green coat. Within several years, a lightweight, made-to-order Jacket was available from the Club's Golf Shop.
... The single breasted, single vent Jacket's color is 'Masters Green' and is adorned with an Augusta National Golf Club logo on the left chest pocket. The logo also appears on the brass buttons."
Soon, the Green Jacket became the symbol of membership in the ultra-exclusive Augusta National Golf Club. And slipping a jacket onto the winner of The Masters - a tradition that began in 1949 - symbolized that golfer's entry into the exclusive club of Masters champions.
Q. Do Masters Champions Get to Keep the Green Jacket?
The Masters champion receives the traditional Green Jacket at the victory ceremony following his win. But does the Masters champion get to keep the Green Jacket?
A. Yes and sort-of. Yes: The Masters champion gets to take the Green Jacket home with him and keep it for a year. When he returns to Augusta National the following year, he returns the jacket to the club.
Which brings us to sort-of: From that point on, the champion has "visitation rights" to his Green Jacket. The jacket is considered his, and when he visits Augusta National at any point thereafter, he can retrieve and wear his jacket.
The official website of The Masters explains a little further:
"Near the conclusion of the Masters, several Jackets are selected which could fit the possible winner during the presentation ceremony. The winner will have his measurements taken at the Club's Golf Shop or may provide measurements so that a custom made Green Jacket can be tailored.
Typically, a multiple winner will have only one Green Jacket unless his size drastically changes."
What is the easiest and cheapest way to get badges/tickets to the Masters golf tournament?
Tournament tickets are impossible to get but if you are willing to go to a practice round (Monday thru Wednesday) it's still hard but not impossible. They work it like a lottery. You send in an application form for the next year and they draw out names at random. Maybe you get drawn, maybe you don't. You just keep sending it in year after year and eventually you get lucky. You can get a copy of the entry form at the Master's website or the Augusta National website. At least you get to walk the beautiful coarse and see the players up close.
