Optimistic golfers, rejoice! The Masters tickets lottery is officially open. The application process for the 2023 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club opened on Wednesday, June 1, and will only be live for three short weeks — so there’s no time to waste.
So how do you do it? Go to the Masters tickets site here, and log in or create a new account.
From there, you’ll double-check your account information before going to the fun page, where you actually get to select which days you want tickets. You can select all of them, but you won’t win more than one day — if you win at all.
Practice round tickets (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) are $100 each and you can select up to four tickets per day. Tickets for tournament days (Thursday to Sunday), are $140 each with a max of two tickets per day.
You only have to pay if you get selected for tickets and want to claim them.
Then, finalize your order, review your application and submit. You will get an email conformation. But act fast, because the deadline to apply is June 21.
Tournament day tickets will be selected first, with practice round tickets coming after. Patrons will be emailed in late July with their results either way.
Oh, and one more thing. In case you were wondering just how lucky you have to get to score a ticket, one website actually did its best to gather some numbers, put forth its best estimations and come up with a relatively educated guess at your chances of striking Masters gold.
Using a formula you can read more about here, the site Bookies.com estimated your chances of scoring a single-day tournament ticket at 0.55 percent, or roughly 1 out of 200.
Hey, if that number is even close to accurate, it’s not impossible, right? Good luck!
