A Shut Look At The 2024 Masters (Golf) Event Prize Cash On Supply

After a long, long wait, the Masters Tournament is finally here. Traditionally, this competition is the first of the four men’s major golf championships. From PGA Tour points to prize money, a lot is at stake at the Masters Tournament 2024 (golf). However, let us look at the competition’s history before delving deep into the payouts for this year’s edition.

Held for the first time in 1934, the Masters Tournament is now in its 88th edition in 2024. The tournament is part of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA) Tour, the European Tour and the Japan Tour. It was originally known as the Augusta National Invitational Tournament before being rebranded to its modern iteration in 1939.

American golfer Horton Smith won the inaugural edition of the Masters Tournament (he also won the third edition in 1936). Jack Nicklaus, famously known as the ‘Golden Bear’, has the most titles to date with six wins. Golfing legend Tiger Woods ranks second on the list with five titles, followed by Arnold Palmer with four. Spanish golfer Jon Rahm is the defending champion heading to the 2024 edition.

Since 1949, the champions of the Masters Tournament are presented with a distinctive green jacket. But what is the significance of this coat? It is the official attire of the members of the Augusta National Golf Club, and the winners of the Masters Tournament automatically become honorary members of the club. However, the winners are allowed to keep their jackets for only a year, following which they have to return them to the club.

Now that you are well-versed in the history of the Masters Tournament, let us delve deep into the prize money pool for the 2024 edition, the schedule and venue for the golf contest, and more.
