The lottery for Masters 2024 tickets is now open, and it’s still incredibly difficult to win

It is already time to rethink the Masters.

The Augusta National Golf Club officially opened its ticket lottery on Thursday, giving golf fans the chance to win the chance to purchase tickets to the 2024 Masters.

. Fans can apply for up to four tickets for one of three practice rounds and up to two tickets for all four tournament days, although fans are only eligible to win for one day. Practice round tickets are $100 each and tournament day tickets start at $140.

All applicants will be notified anyway by the end of July.

Unfortunately, that’s about the only way to get tickets to golf’s biggest tournament of the year. Resale of tickets is not permitted and scalping of tickets within range of the course is illegal. The other option is to have a customer badge, which has a very, very long waiting list that closed in 2000.

The Masters ticket lottery is open by June 20.

Although it seems like a fairly simple process, don’t expect too much. According to, fans have a less than 1% chance of being selected to buy tickets for any of the four days of the tournament. It is estimated that around 2 million people participate in the lottery every June and only around 11,000 winners are selected each day. Assuming the math is correct – precise numbers for the tournament are hard to pin down – you would have around a 1 in 200 chance of being selected.

Good luck.
