Masters Tees Off

Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports

The Masters may be teeing off today without spectators, but fans can still get their fill. For the first-time ever there’s an online Masters store, but a ticket to the 2020 Masters Tournament or 2020 Augusta National Women’s Amateur is required to shop at it.

During a typical Masters week, the Augusta National pro shop can sell upwards of $50 million worth of merchandise. While most items are exclusive, Fanatics is carrying the Taste of the Masters package — a collection of more modestly priced fare available at the tournament.
