This weekend, Augusta National Golf Club will host the final rounds of The Masters, arguably the world’s most famous golf tournament. The event is televised each year by CBS, with the slogan “A tradition like no other.” The Masters is indeed rich with tradition, from its green jacket ceremony to its honorary opening tee shot. Some traditions, however, don’t make the headlines...

Lesser-Known Traditions at The Masters
