The biggest stars at Augusta will once again be Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and those lovely Pimento Cheese sandwiches.
The Par 3 Contest will evolve into another gorgeous Thursday where a “tradition unlike any other” takes place.
And those who are fortunate enough to have nabbed an expensive ticket will continue to make it rain on merchandise by the boatload. But rest easy knowing that you will eat well and for absurdly low prices.
Darren Rovell posted this tweet in 2014, showing off the bargain prices of sandwiches, snacks and beer:
In 2015, according to Twitter, not much has changed at all:
Now you can get caramel popcorn to go along with the must-eat sandwiches on the list. Just $3 will allow you to sample fan favorites in the form of the egg salad and pimento cheese sandwiches, which are nearly as beloved as the Azaleas that line the course.
YouTube gives us a brief breakdown on some of the more delicious choices:
Now this isn’t to say that a trip to the famed event will be cheap, because The Augusta Chronicle reported in December that ticket prices would increase in 2015: “Masters Tournament patrons were notified by email this week that a series badge will cost $325. It’s the first increase since 2012, when the coveted badges went up $50 to $250.”
However, the norm throughout all of sports seems to follow pricey admission with exorbitant food costs for fans. Thankfully, the tradition at Augusta is the complete opposite, driving down the price of food to well under par.
And it serves the tournament well, because walking amid such beauty shouldn’t be painful. It should be pleasant and serene.
Taking a jaunt with a delicious and surprisingly inexpensive sandwich somehow accomplishes that goal.
