The Money Behind The 2021 Masters Golf Tournament

The Masters teed off Thursday morning with its typically small field of just 88 golfers—roughly 60 fewer than the other three major championships. It marks the return of spectators to Augusta National Golf Club and a return to its usual April slot after the 2020 version was held in November, due to the pandemic, sans patrons (you’ll find no common “fans” on this course).

Don’t expect packed galleries racing through the famous azaleas, though. The club is not commenting on crowd sizes, but the typical attendance of 40,000 to 50,000 is expected to be limited to player entourages and those with ties to Augusta National members and tournament sponsors, or more like 8,000.
