It is one of the four men's professional major championships. It is played at Augusta National once a year. Winning a major championship is the biggest prize in Golf and can define a career. The winner receives the coveted green jacket, 5 year PGA Tour exemption, 10 year major exemption and life time Masters exemption, as well as a small winners' cheque of around $1,300,000.
