Is it possible to get tickets for the 2023 Masters?
So you missed out on the lottery to get tickets to the 2023 Masters. Not to worry, there are still ways for you to see the most exciting event in golf.
Golf fans all over the world apply for tickets to experience the beauty and traditions of the first major tournament of the year. But what happens if your name isn’t picked? Can you still go?
Who can apply for Masters tickets?
Anyone can apply for tickets to the Masters on their official ticket portal, and if you’re lucky enough to get chosen, tickets range from $75 per practice round to $115 for a tournament round per person (with a limit of two tickets per lottery-winner) plus taxes.
Approximately 20,000 tickets are available and an estimated 2 million people apply every year for the chance to watch players like Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and Scottie Scheffler at Augusta National in Georgia. The odds aren’t great, about 200-to-1, but the alternative is much more expensive.
The difficulty of being rewarded with a day pass through the lottery system has even made some fans even try to find illegal ways of fixing the system.
How to get 2023 Masters tickets outside of the lottery
If the lottery doesn’t work in your favor, you can still try and get daily passes on the secondary market. Prices for a day pass for a tournament round can cost as much as $5,000 if purchased shortly before the tournament.
The best advice would be to try to buy a ticket well in advance of the tournament to avoid paying ridiculously high prices.
