The tournament came to life for the first time in 1934, the event does contain a smaller field than other major championships because it is an invitational event.

The winners are allowed to keep the green jacket for one year, then they must return it to Augusta National’s clubhouse, it is still their personal property and is kept in a designated closet. For multiple winners, they use the same green jacket, unless they need to be refitted. On Tuesday of The Masters week, they host the Champions dinner, first held in 1952, the dinner is hosted by the previous years’ winner and is only open to past champions and certain board members of the Augusta National Golf Club.
