As an avid golf fan, I eagerly anticipate the Masters Tournament each year. The Masters is the first major championship of the year, and it’s held at the prestigious Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Wednesday’s practice round is a great way to get a glimpse of the world’s best golfers as they prepare for the tournament. In this article, I’ll give you a rundown of what to expect at the Masters Tournament Wednesday.
History of the Masters Tournament
The Masters Tournament is steeped in tradition and history. The tournament was first held in 1934 and has been held annually ever since, except for a few years during World War II. The tournament is known for its iconic green jacket, which is awarded to the winner each year. The green jacket has become a symbol of excellence in the golfing world and is highly coveted by professional golfers.
Overview of the Course at Augusta National Golf Club
The course at Augusta National Golf Club is one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the world. The course was designed by golf legend Bobby Jones and architect Alister MacKenzie and opened for play in 1933. The course features rolling hills, towering trees, and manicured greens that are a joy to play on.
Notable Players to Watch – Tiger Woods, Rory McIlory, Phil Mickelson
The Masters Tournament always attracts the world’s best golfers, but there are a few players who are always worth watching. Tiger Woods is a five-time Masters champion and is always a favorite to win.
Will Tiger Break Jack’s record? I might break your jaw if you ask that question one more time…
Rory McIlroy is another player who is always in contention at the Masters. Phil Mickelson, a three-time Masters champion, is also a player to watch.
New Developments in the PGA Tour – LIV Golf and Greg Norman’s Involvement
There have been some new developments in the PGA Tour recently, including the launch of LIV Golf, a new golf league that aims to rival the PGA Tour. Greg Norman, a former world number one golfer, is involved in the league and has been vocal about his support for it. It will be interesting to see how this new league develops and what impact it will have on the PGA Tour.
Schedule of Events for Wednesday’s Tournament
The Masters Tournament Wednesday is a day full of events and activities. The practice round begins at 8:30 am, and golfers will be on the course throughout the day. The Par 3 Contest, a fun event where golfers play a short course with family and friends, takes place in the afternoon.

What to Expect from the Practice Rounds
The practice rounds at the Masters Tournament Wednesday are a great way to see the world’s best golfers up close. The players will be working on their swings, putting, and getting a feel for the course. It’s a great opportunity to see how the players handle the challenging course at Augusta National Golf Club. One thing to keep in mind is that the players won’t be playing at full speed, so don’t expect to see them hitting every shot with full power.
Insider Tips for Attending the Masters Tournament
Attending the Masters Tournament can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it can also be overwhelming if you’re not prepared. Here are a few insider tips to help you make the most of your experience:
- Wear comfortable shoes – you’ll be doing a lot of walking!
- Bring sunscreen and a hat – the Georgia sun can be brutal.
- Bring cash – many vendors at the tournament only accept cash.

Final round! Who ya got? Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka or the field?
The big match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson is now set. The stage is Shadow Creek Golf Club in Las Vegas. The winner will take home $9 million. I thought it was going to be $10 million, but oh well.
Who is my pick to win this match? I’m going to go with Phil Mickelson. Based on the promotional photo for the event, Tiger Woods is apparently going to be playing left handed clubs. Check out the lefty driver:
Despite having “face twist” technology, Tiger’s driving has been quite bad this season. Perhaps he’s switching to left-handed to improve his driving accuracy.
The event will be on pay per view. Tiger vs Phil TV information is here.
The hot golf news over the last few days is that there will be a pending winner take all golf exhibition between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. The winner will take home a cool $10,000,000. That’s great and all, but there’s no thrill in this if the money is simply coming from sponsors of the event and advertising revenue.
People wonder how pro golfers can be so relaxed when playing for so much money. The reason is they’re playing for someone else’s money. The best way to make this Tiger/Phil event interesting would be to make each player bring $10,000,000 OF THEIR OWN MONEY to the event. The $20,000,000 pile of cash would then be on display for the fans to google over, and the players would (hopefully) get a little squirmy knowing that THEIR cash is on the line. The look would be cool. Security guys, Brinks truck…the whole deal.
I know I get nervous when I’m playing to keep my own money, especially when it is a $2.00 Nassau and there’s a press going on the final hole. Nothing makes your butt cheeks tighten up over a 3-foot putt like knowing it’s to save yourself from losing $4.00.
