In the world of golf, the Masters is a traditional rite of spring. It features top golfers battling it out for the green jacket in the first major golf championship of the season, and with prize money worth over a million dollars.
As such, the Masters remains one of the most watched tournaments of the year. Tickets go on sale late the year before, as fans clamor for the cheap practice round sessions - some going for more than $200 a ticket - as prices climb into the thousands for up-close-and-personal locations as the tournament progresses.
Say amen, brother: Something akin to the Bermuda Triangle, Augusta's infamous Amen Corner comprises the 11th, 12th and 13th holes where even the best players
pray to avoid sand traps, sudden wind gusts, and Rae's Creek looming just nearby.
