Masters Traditions

The Green Jacket - 

 This famous tradition of winning a green jacket began in 1949, with Sam Snead being the first Masters Champion to receive a green jacket. The jackets are what the members of Augusta National wear when at the club; by winning The Masters you are invited by the club to become an honorary member hence why the winner is presented with a green jacket. 

 

 

Par 3 Contest- 

As well as being the first player to win a green jacket, in 1960 Sam Snead became the first player to win the crystal bowl awarded for winning The Masters Par 3 competition. This informal tournament is played over 9 holes and allows for family members and friends to caddy, making it a crowd favourite. There have been 94 holes in one throughout the history of the contest. In 2016 a record 9 holes in one were made, but more impressively in 2015 Camilo Villegas made 2 holes in one in the same round. No one has ever won the par 3 contest and the green jacket in the same year. 

Opening Tee Shot-

It has become customary for a past champion or legend of the game to start The Masters Tournament off with an opening tee shot. Legends to have had this honour include-

During the years 1977-1980 and 2003-2006 no ceremonial opening tee shots were hit, making the honour of being invited to do so that little more special.

Champions Dinner-

Held each year on the Tuesday preceding the tournament, the previous years Masters champion hosts a dinner at Augusta for all the other past champions and a few lucky Augista National members (as if they weren’t lucky enough already?!). As the evenings host they get to choose the menu for dinner. Put it this way, the chefs and kitchen staff at Augusta must be extremely talented, as over the years they’ve had the task of preparing a wide range of international cuisines such as Haggis (Choice of Sandy Lyle), Elk & Wild Boar (Mike Weir), Penang Curry (Vijay Singh) and Bobotie (Trevor Immelman). 

Amateur Invitations-

Bobby Jones who established The Masters Tournament was probably the greatest amateur champion of all time. Because of this the tournament upholds the tradition of inviting a minimum of 6 amateurs;
