Tiger Woods US MastersThe setting for the US Masters is the world famous Augusta National, which sits at the top of most people’s list of dream golf courses. Created originally by the legendary Bobby Jones the course was designed to test the best players in the world. After devising an annual tournament that was originally called the Augusta National International Tournament the best players in the world came flocking. In 1939 the tournament was renamed the US Masters and the quality of the field has certainly not diminished in recent years. Now the top 55 players in the world make up the star studded field at the Masters and are joined by past champions and legends of the game that recently have included Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.

The course itself is certainly a test even to the best players with an awe inspiring combination of holes that provide so many risk vs. reward scenarios. Good shots are rewarded and errant shots are punished severely. The course has been significantly lengthened in recent years as a defence against improving technology, proving that a club that is steeped in tradition can still move with the times. Augusta has produced some of the most dramatic golf we have ever seen and the Masters are a perpetual highlight of the golfing calendar. From Jack Nicklaus’ Sunday charge in the twighlight of his career in 1986 to a fresh faced Tiger Woods demolishing the field in his first major in 1997, Augusta consistently delivers golf from the heavens and Sunday evening drama that is rarely matched in other events.
