The Augusta National Golf Club is targeting a Masters Tournament in November

Statement from the Augusta National Golf Club

Apr 06, 2020: On March 13, we announced the postponement of the Masters Tournament and the Augusta National Women’s Amateur based upon the risks associated with the Coronavirus COVID-19, a pandemic that continues to impact lives everywhere.

We remain very mindful of the extraordinary and unprecedented challenges presented by the
Coronavirus around the world. As such, we continue to keep in close contact with local, state and
national health authorities to help inform our decisions.

In collaboration with the leading organizations in golf, Augusta National Golf Club has identified
November 9-15 as the intended dates to host the 2020 Masters. While more details will be shared in
the weeks and months to come, we, like all of you, will continue to focus on all mandated
precautions and guidelines to fight against the Coronavirus. Along the way, we hope the anticipation
of staging the Masters Tournament in the fall brings a moment of joy to the Augusta community and
all those who love the sport.

We want to emphasize that our future plans are incumbent upon favorable counsel and direction
from health officials. Provided that occurs and we can conduct the 2020 Masters, we intend to invite
those professionals and amateurs who would have qualified for our original April date and welcome
all existing ticket holders to enjoy the excitement of Masters week.

After careful consideration and following an extensive review process, we also have made the
difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Augusta National Women’s Amateur. Ultimately, the many
scheduling challenges with NCAA tournaments, the World Amateur Team Championships, the
LPGA Q-Series and other events when women’s amateur golf resumes led to this decision.

Each player who accepted an invitation for the 2020 championship will be invited to compete in the
2021 Augusta National Women’s Amateur, provided she remains an amateur. Also, those who
purchased tickets will be sent a refund in May and given the opportunity to purchase tickets for the
event next year. We thank everyone for their understanding of this decision, and we look forward to
the championship returning in full strength next spring.

We know the effects of these announcements will be far-reaching. Additional information will be
made available on Masters.com and ANWAgolf.com as details become known. Your patience is
appreciated as we hope and plan for the 84th Masters this November.

Thank you for your continued support and we wish you and your loved ones health and safety during
these uncertain times.
