Golf fans eager to win the right to purchase daily Masters Tournament tickets received e-mail notifications this week.
Those who applied at masters.com got the good -- or bad -- news this week. The notifications are being spread out over the entire week, a tournament spokesman said.
If you don't get a chance to purchase tickets to the tournament, there is still a chance to apply for tickets to the practice rounds.
The online application process is open until July 30, and notifications will be sent via e-mail in mid-August.
In April, Augusta National Golf Club announced that it would hold a lottery and allow fans who currently don't receive series badges a chance to get daily tickets for the coveted tournament rounds.
The move means that those who were left off the waiting list for series badges will get another chance. The waiting list was established in 1972 and closed in 1978 when demand far exceeded the club's supply.
The waiting list briefly reopened in 2000, and people who applied for practice-round tickets from 1998-2000 were added by random selection.
Exactly how many daily tickets are being made available is not known. Augusta National does not disclose the number of tickets sold.
Ticket prices for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday practice rounds will cost $50 each in 2012, up from $36 for Monday and Tuesday and $41 for Wednesday. Daily tournament round tickets are $75 each; currently, a series badge good for all four days costs $200.
