  Masters 2021: Are these 9 famous Augusta National myths real or urban legends? Masters 2021: Are these 9 famous Augusta National myths real or urban legends?As with most telling of tales, the stories tend to grow a little longer over time. Or perhaps not. When you have a place as special as Augusta National, some stories—heck, most stories—tend to actually be true to some degree. Here are some of the most spoken-about myths that circulate regarding the Masters along with our own Snopes-like assessments of their veracity.

For the second time in not quite five months, golf fans — excuse us, patrons — get to enjoy the majesty that is the Masters Tournament.

The most prestigious of golf's four majors announced its tee times on Tuesday, with several intriguing groupings in the first and second rounds. First up among the featured groups is 2020 champion Dustin Johnson, partnered with Lee Westwood and U.S. Amateur champion Tyler Strafaci. Johnson is obviously the biggest golfer to watch from the group as he seeks to become just the first golfer since Tiger Woods in 2001-02 to win the famed green jacket in consecutive tournaments.

Tiger Woods wearing a suit and tie talking on a cell phone: The green jacket is the thing at Augusta National. But winning golf's most coveted prize also comes with a hefty paycheck.  Golf statistician Lou Stagner recently took a look at the career winnings for pro golfers at The Masters and then adjusted them to 2019 dollars.  While the man at the top is not a surprise (spoiler alert: It's Tiger Woods), the real takeaway is just how much purses have escalated.  When Jack Nicklaus won his first Masters in 1963, the monetary prize was $20,000, an equivalent to to just $167K today.  Woods, meanwhile, made over $2 million for his historic win in 2019, while those who finished tied for 18th took home $161K apiece.
