There were 89 players in this year’s Masters. A major usually has 156 players. Only players who meet at least one of the 20 qualifying criteria set by the organizer, Augusta National Golf Club, are invited. Usually, there are no more than 100 players. The highest number of players was 109 in 1962, and it hasn’t exceeded 100 since 1966. In 1985, only 77 players met the criteria.

There are two main reasons why the Masters limits the number of players who make the cut to around 50 despite the small field. The Masters is a three-man team event for rounds one and two, while rounds three and four are two-man teams. 카지노사이트 추천 The Masters is a one-way street from the first to the last hole, unlike most other tournaments that have simultaneous starts from holes 1 and 10 in rounds one and two.

In order to maintain this tradition and still finish the rounds before sunset, the Masters believes that a field of around 50 players is appropriate.
