Scheduled for the first full week of April, it is the first of the majors to be played each year. Unlike the other major championships, the Masters is held each year at the same location, Augusta National Golf Club, a private golf club in the city of Augusta, Georgia, USA. The tournament is an official money event on the PGA Tour, the European Tour, and the Japan Golf Tour.
