If you are looking to score tickets to the Masters tournament, you might have to cough up about 6K, and you can thanks Tiger Woods for that. Susana Victoria Perez (@susana_vp) has more.

Augusta National is the most iconic course in all of golf, so it’s no surprise that tickets to the Masters are some of the toughest to acquire in all of sports.

But the recent return to form of Tiger Woods has led to even more interest, with the price of an entry badge good for the entire tournament now surpassing $6,000 on resale websites such as StubHub and Vivid Seats. For fans who don’t need to see every day of the tournament, single-day tickets are available for a more reasonable amount, with most days available for roughly $1,500, but fluctuating depending on the day.

While the price of tickets on resale markets are unbelievably high, they are quite cheap for the lucky few who purchase them initially through Augusta National, — $75 for practice rounds, $115 for tournament rounds, and just $375 for a series badge good for the entire week. The only catch is you have to win the right to buy them through a lottery system long before the weekend of the tournament.
