“I remember I was at my bank one afternoon, wanting to renew a loan, and my lending officer said, ‘Mr. Pratt, we’ve got these tickets we have to sell, how about taking 50 of them?’” remembers Hugh Pratt, a 94-year-old lifelong Augustan. “We were getting pressured by our bankers!

They were trying to sell the Masters, so to speak.”

“Boy, things have changed,” stated Pratt. “By about 1957 or 1958, I’d say, they didn’t need to have the banks push those tickets anymore.”

“It’s truly a bucket list item for so many people,” stated Chris Leyden, communications manager for SeatGeek, an online ticketing site that currently has Saturday and Sunday badges for next week’s 83rd Masters running for more than $5,000. “More than 10,000 people enter the lottery each year. It’s a national, even global, audience. For so many fans, this is the pinnacle sporting event they’re going to attend in their life.”

“Prices definitely seem a bit higher this year,” stated Leyden. “In general, we’ve seen an upswing since Tiger (returned). A lot of this is Tiger related.”
