The Field of Masters Tournament is the shortest course out of all the major tournaments. One more interesting fact to note about the US masters’ tournament is that only 96 players participate in the tournament and they are all invitees, as masters’ do not have qualifiers instead they send invitations to past champions and players to play in the tournament.

Such is the case this year as 96 players will compete against each other for the title and also a perk, which is that the champion of the masters’ tournament automatically gets invited to play in the rest of the majors for 5 years.
