The cost for a coveted ticket to watch the Masters Tournament is increasing by $50. The Augusta Chronicle reports that Tournament patrons who receive series badges each year were notified this week that the cost of a Masters badge is now $250. It's the first increase since 2009, when the price went up $25 to $200.
A green jacket that belonged to Masters Tournament co-founder Bobby Jones will be up for auction next month, and auction officials say they expect it to go for more than $100,000. The jacket will be put up for bid Aug. 4 in conjunction with the Chicago National Sports Show in Rosemont, Ill.
