Want some merch? It’ll cost you
There was a time when getting your hands on Masters merchandise was nearly as difficult as winning a Green Jacket. There is still only one place in the world to purchase official Masters souvenirs and that is inside Augusta National at their Harrods-like merchandise store which is only open during Masters week. There is just one catch. To get in the store means having to first secure a Masters badge, one of the most coveted tickets in sport. For Thursday’s opening round, asking prices were up to $7,500 (£5,730) on resale.
