The Augusta National announced this afternoon that it will close the gates for today’s practice round and not reopen the rest of the day.
However, the club announced, purchasers of Monday Practice Round tickets will be sent refunds in May, and will be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase 2015 Practice Rounds tickets. Further information will be included with the refund.
“We are disappointed that our patrons could not enjoy today’s practice round, however safety must be our first concern. We look forward to seeing these Patrons next year,” said Billy Payne, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament.
The last time gates did not open due to bad weather during a scheduled day was Monday, April 7, 2003.
