Hosting three of the major golf tournaments, the United States is the hotspot of golf. The Masters, is one of those three, starts in April and is the first major of the year. Its first edition was played in March 22, 1934. Augusta National Golf Club, a private course in the city of Augusta, Georgia, has hosted the tournament since its inception.
Like the other three majors, winning The Masters offers a lot of privilege. The winner is automatically qualified for the remaining three majors of the year. A cash prize, a distinctive green jacket and silver Masters trophy are awarded to the champion. The names of the winners are also engraved on the actual silver Masters trophy.
Alike the majors, the tournament consists of four rounds, 18 holes for each day. Small field means the players will play in groups of three for the first two rounds. After 36 holes, only the top 50 places (ties included) can proceed further. Scoring works based on stroke play, the player to take fewest number of strokes over the course of round, or rounds, wins.
Before jumping in detail, let's clear out the terms and rules followed in golf. A professional golf course consists of 18 holes, amateurs practise in courses with holes as less as 9. A golfer should start play from the teeing ground by swinging the golf club. The next player continues the same. After that, the players should walk to the area where the ball landed and try to put it into the hole with as less strokes as possible.
There are different types of golf clubs, a maximum of 14 golf clubs can be carried by a player in a tournament. Different types of clubs include putters, woods, irons, hybrids and wedges. The number of strokes to score are taken into account and added in tournaments. Completion of 18 holes usually form a round.
A par is known as the usual number of strokes it takes to finish a hole. Taking one stroke more than par is known as 1 over par or bogey. Two strokes more, 2 over par or double bogey. One stroke less is 1 under par or birdie, two strokes less is 2 under par or Eagle and three strokes less is 3 under par or Albatross. In most tournaments, just the under or over par stat is displayed for the players to understand their position better. Multiple rounds are played over several days in golf tours.
