Charter a private jet to The US Masters
2018 marks the 82nd edition of The Masters, one of world’s most prestigious professional golf tournaments and the first of four major annual golfing championships (The Masters, U.S. Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship). Scheduled for April 2-8 at the iconic Augusta National Golf Club, why not charter a private jet to Augusta, Georgia and enjoy this week-long tournament live?
In 1932, golfing superstar Bobby Jones designed the Augusta National Golf Course with the help of banker Clifford Roberts and architect Alister MacKenzie. The following year the golf course was opened to the public, and in 1934 it hosted the first Augusta National Invitation Tournament – or, as it’s colloquially known, The Masters. Nearly a century later, The Masters is arguably the most famous golfing championship in the world, currently boasting a $10 million prize purse.
Defending Masters Champion Sergio Garcia, who defeated Justin Rose in a playoff last year after both golfers finished 9- under with scores of 279, faces fierce competition from his rival again this year, along with golfing legend Tiger Woods and 2018 favourite Jordan Spieth.
Competitors have to meet one of 18 criteria to qualify for the tournament, including being a former winner of The Masters, a winner of the last five U.S. and British Opens or a winner of the PGA Championship. Additionally, the Masters Committee can invite international golfers who meet none of the qualifying criteria but are felt to be deserving competitors.
