Memories of the Masters: Golf Magazine’s April issue inspires golfers in difficult times, showcasing one of the most storied events in sports

43-page feature highlights Tiger Woods' historic 2019 victory

NEW YORK, NY (March 20, 2020) — Pining for Augusta’s pines? In these difficult times, GOLF Magazine’s April Masters issue provides a 43-page reminder of why The Masters is one of the greatest events in all sports.

Available in print and online at GOLF.com, GOLF’s April issue will bring you back to the sights, the sounds and the emotions of golf’s most unique major, even as we all wait for the day when the storied event is back on the schedule.

The Masters is golf. And no one covers The Masters better than GOLF.

The April issue features a compelling excerpt from GOLF senior writer Michael Bamberger’s new book, The Second Life of Tiger Woods, which provides a behind-the-scenes look at the events leading up to Tiger’s historic 2019 Masters Championship. Bamberger’s account is a story of Tiger’s newfound confidence as he approached the 2019 event, revealing a Tiger Woods with a maturity, control and energy that had been lacking in recent years.

“Anyone who has followed professional golf over the last 25 years will be amazed upon discovering what really led to Tiger’s 2019 Masters victory,” said Jason Adel, CEO of GOLF Magazine and GOLF.com. “Michael Bamberger paints a wonderful picture of man on a mission to recapture the greatness that had defined him for his entire career.”

GOLF’s April issue also includes stories on Ben Crenshaw’s captivating win in the 1995 Masters, the clubs Ben Hogan carried in his bag in his 1953 championship, and a deep dive into Augusta’s treacherous 12th hole, which has dashed the hopes of many a would-be Masters champion in the event’s 84-year run.

Since its comprehensive redesign in 2019, GOLF readership has soared across its platforms. Most recently, the GOLF.com website’s online page views more than doubled in the first two weeks of March compared to a year earlier.

Whether it is stories of champions from Masters past, or a look back on the inaugural Women’s Amateur and the future of that event, if you are looking to immerse yourself in all the glory that is the Masters, GOLF has you covered.
