No Augusta National For Me Next Year
By mustang6560 on 8/17/11
I received an email from The Masters last night saying they were "pleased" to announce the random selection for practice round tickets for the 2012 Masters was over and that I should login to see if I was one of the lucky few chosen. Despite my better judgement, I was temporarily hopeful that I could start planning my trip to Augusta, Georgia next spring.
Your application was not selected for 2012 Masters Practice Rounds tickets.So I am officially zero for three for Masters' tickets.
Last summer, I applied for practice round tickets and was rejected. This year, The Masters expanded the random selection to include tournament tickets so I applied for both tournament round tickets AND practice round tickets and was rejected both times. I'm starting to think the members at Augusta National don't like me. Is it because I agreed if one of the majors should be dropped from the current format it should be The Masters?
How did everyone else do? Did you get rejected too?

I missed out this year too. I did attend a practice day in 2009 and would love to get back there.
Make it zero for three for me too
Just got my rejection email yesterday. My buddy got his a few weeks ago. Me and my brother attended on Wednesday in 2009,would love to get back.
I am only 0 for 2 times. I guess we just keep trying
0 for 4
I am zero for forever, actually since 1999. I did attend 2000 practice and 2009 first round and practice on TUESDAY. Both times were fantastic but nothing beats the first time you walk the course. I paid dearly for my dream.It would be unreal to actually have an affordable ticket. Maybe next year... ood luck to all!
0 4 3 here too.
Lived there for four years (Evans, GA) and struck out every year.... So before I left, I got to play there! Sweeeet!
Guys who missed the masters tickets again!!!Just go down there and you can buy them for a very reasonable price!!!Been there 3 times and bought them right down there!!!Every one is selling tickets cheap!!!
I guess I am the lucky one....got 4 tix to a practice round....missed out on tourney tix.
2 wednesday practice round tickets. first try!
Got picked for 2 Wednesday practice round tickets. Paid for them 2 minutes after reading the email. I'm going!!!!
Attended 2007 Weds. practice round with par 3 tournament. We had 1 ticket to sell that went for $430 on Ebay. Tried for Weds. tickets and tournament tickets this year, just rejected. Don't think it was related to my past. I'd go again in a heart beat!
0 for 3 on practice rounds and 0 for 1 on tournament tickets. Don't they know that I'd go every year if I had tickets? I spend a lot of money in the gift shops at tournaments.
SAME NO LUCK FOR THE TICKETS. THINK I WOULD HAVE LIKED IT BETTER GETTING NOTHING IF NOT CHOSEN VERSUS GETTING THE EMAIL SAYING THE SELECTION WAS COMPLETE AND TO CHECK THE SITE.
I was one of the lucky ones! Luckily, I was selected for 4 tickets to Wednesday practice. Can't wait to see the par 3 contest, I have never been to the Masters and definitely won't miss it in 2012.
