Looking for 2017 Masters Tournament Tickets? Expect to Pay up If So


Chances are you weren't selected in the randomized lottery for Masters Tournament tickets back in June. No need to fret, there are tickets available on the resale market.

That is, if you're willing to dole out some serious cash.

The 81st edition of the tournament will bring the biggest names in the professional golf circut to Augusta, GA between Monday, April 3 and Sunday, April 9. The Masters Tournament is widely known as one of the toughest tickets to lock down in all of professional sports, which then leads to big markups on resale outlets. That will again be the case entering tournament play on Thursday, as Masters Tournament tickets are posting massive demand.

A limited inventory exists on TicketIQ for each day, and that is leading to some serious premiums on the resale market. four-day badges currently own a $1,477 average and the cheapest are listed from $1,173 each. While those prices may seem exorbitant, they actually make this year the cheapest four-day badge TicketIQ has tracked since 2012. It surpasses last year's average of $1,768, which at the time was the cheapest Masters of the last four years.

Interestingly enough, it will be pricier to attend individual days than buying a four-day badge. Each day between Thursday and Sunday owns an average resale price higher than the four-day badge, making the badge the best bang for your buck this year. Thursday offers the cheapest single-day tickets at an average of $1,483 and $1,224 get-in price. Friday will be the priciest day to attend, with tickets averaging $2,116 and the cheapest starting from $1,352 each.

Highlighting the field this year will be superstar Dustin Johnson, who's put together an elite 2017 thus far. DJ travels to Augusta with three consecutive PGA Tour wins, having come away with victories at the Genesis Open, WGC-Mexico Championship, and WGC-Match Play. He becomes just the fourth player to play in the Masters as winner of three straight PGA events and the first since Hubert Green to do so in 1976/

Missing from the action for a second consecutive year is Tiger Woods, who announced last Friday his decision to sit out as he recovers from ongoing back issues. Woods will miss the Masters for the third time in four years and said he has no timetable for his return to play.

Among other notable names in the mix are Justin Spieth, who looks to rebound after an uneventful 2016, and Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas, who each enter play with two wins on the year. Spieth will hope to return to form after a first-place finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and a third-place finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
