The Masters is perhaps the most prestigious tournament in all of golf.

It’s played every April at Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia.

It’s known for several things, including the green jacket awarded to the winner and the annual champion’s dinner for all past champions.

The field is typically 90-100 players, smaller than a typical PGA Tour event.

So, how can players qualify?
