    Due to inclement weather conditions and safety concerns, it was necessary that we close the gates for Monday’s Practice Round at 10 a.m. today. The current forecast is that this weather front will not permit the reopening of the grounds.

    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.
