The Masters is the hottest ticket in golf – and as a result, it’s incredibly hard to get tickets.

The year’s first major is notoriously hard to secure briefs for, such is the demand to see the world’s best golfers battle it out at Augusta National.

However, there are a few ways you can get your hands on the most coveted tickets in the game.

The lottery

The safest way to secure your spot among the Azaleas is the Augusta National lottery. Run every year with a cut-off of June 1, it randomly selects patrons for day passes for tournament rounds. After those have been dished out, it then hands out briefs for practice rounds. Be warned, though – competition is fierce, so you will more than likely be trying for a few years before you’re successful.

The open market

It is possible to buy second-hand tickets – but they’ll come at a premium, as briefs generally sell for higher sums than Super Bowl tickets. You could pay up to $5,000 for a day pass. For a week-long brief, you’re looking at upwards of $10,000, and it’s also worth bearing in mind there are plenty of fake tickets doing the rounds online. If you’re planning on turning up to Magnolia Lane in the hope of getting your hands on a last-minute sell-on, think again – it’s illegal to purchase tickets within half a mile of the club.

Be a PGA pro

If you are lucky (and good) enough to be a PGA pro, you’re in luck – because you can simply request a ticket for your personal use!
