The Masters Tournament is one of the four major championships in professional golf and it always takes place at Augusta National Golf Club.
Unlike other majors, The Masters Tournament starts off the calendar year with a week-long event that also includes social events such as parades, fireworks displays and concerts for attendees to enjoy before playing 18 holes on this private course in Georgia.
The tournament has a number of traditions. The champion is given an iconic green jacket to wear during the ceremony, but must return it one year after his victory so that new champions can take their turn wearing them as well.
In some cases though, if they are not in need for another size or just want to replace theirs with newer jackets on hand, then only reigning and first-time winners may remove their golfing attire from the clubhouse grounds
