The 2012 Augusta Masters promises to be one of the sporting highlights of the year. The first golf Major in the calendar is filled with history, drama and incredible action, and takes place at one of the most iconic venues in sport: the Augusta National golf course. As the only Major that returns to the same venue each year, the Masters is an incredibly special tournament to those who compete for the famous green jacket and the millions who watch events unfold.
The course is filled with history and has played host to countless unforgettable moments in its 78 years as the Masters venue; from Jack Nicklaus s epic victory in 1986 to Tiger Woods remarkable win in 1995, these greens and fairways have witnessed sporting theatre like no other. In 2011, Charl Schwartzel became the third South African to claim the green jacket. The tournament was typically dramatic as a host of players were poised to win the tournament heading into the final few holes before Schwartzel sealed a sensational victory. The 2012 Masters promises to be no different, as the best golfers from around the world head to Augusta, all aiming to win one of sport s most prestigious events.
