Masters tickets will be available for individual rounds in 2012

  In a change that will begin next year, a limited number of tickets will be made available to the public for individual tournament rounds, the Masters announced today. The tournament will also continue to have a public sale of practice-round tickets.

All applications will be handled through the tournament website,

"Moving the entire application process to our official tournament website is a safe and convenient way for those wishing to apply for daily practice round tickets," chairman Billy Payne said. "We are also pleased to provide a limited number of tickets for the individual tournament round days, which, up until now, have only been allocated to our series badge holders."

Daily ticket applications must be submitted by June 30 and those selected will be allowed to purchase a maximum of two tickets for any individual day.

Applications for practice round tickets must be submitted by July 30. Applicants who are selected will be allowed to purchase up to four tickets for an individual practice round day.

Each allocation will have its own random selection process and applicants will be notified by email within several weeks after the application deadlines.

Applications for tournament badges have been closed since 1971 when a waiting list was established. The waiting list was closed in 1978 and briefly reopened in 2000.
