The green sport coat is the official attire worn by members of Augusta National while on the club grounds; each Masters winner becomes an honorary member of the club.

Although concerns were raised that the event would conflict with the LPGA Tour 's ANA Inspiration which has invited top amateur players to compete , Ridley stated that he had discussed the event with commissioner Mike Whan , and stated that he agreed on the notion that any move to bolster the prominence of women's golf would be a "win" for the LPGA over time.

Open , The Open Championship , and the PGA Championship for the next five years except for amateur winners, unless they turn pro within the five-year period , and earn a lifetime invitation to the Masters.
They also receive membership on the PGA Tour for the following five seasons and invitations to The Players Championship for five years.
Because the tournament was established by an amateur champion, Bobby Jones , the Masters has a tradition of honoring amateur golf.
It invites winners of the most prestigious amateur tournaments in the world. Also, the current U. Amateur champion always plays in the same group as the defending Masters champion for the first two days of the tournament.
Amateurs in the field are welcome to stay in the "Crow's Nest" atop the Augusta National clubhouse during the tournament. Since , the custom in most years has been to start the tournament with an honorary opening tee shot at the first hole, typically by one or more legendary players.

The Champions' Dinner is held each year on the Tuesday evening preceding Thursday's first round. The dinner was first held in , hosted by defending champion Ben Hogan, to honor the past champions of the tournament.
Officially known as the "Masters Club", it includes only past winners of the Masters, although selected members of the Augusta National Golf Club have been included as honorary members, usually the chairman.
The defending champion, as host, selects the menu for the dinner. Frequently, Masters champions have served cuisine from their home regions prepared by the Masters chef.
Notable examples have included haggis , served by Scotsman Sandy Lyle in ,  and bobotie , a South African dish, served at the behest of champion Trevor Immelman.
The dinner of Phil Mickelson was a Spanish-themed menu in hopes that Seve Ballesteros would attend, but he was too sick to attend and died weeks later.
In , Tiger Woods after winning in served cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, french fries and milkshakes.
Woods was the youngest winner, and when asked about his food choices, he responded with "They said you could pick anything you want Fuzzy Zoeller , the champion, created a media storm when he suggested that Woods refrain from serving collard greens and fried chicken, dishes commonly associated with African-American culture , at the dinner.
Until , all players in the Masters were required to use the services of an Augusta National Club caddie ,    who by club tradition was always an African-American man.
The Masters requires caddies to wear a uniform consisting of a white jumpsuit, a green Masters cap, and white tennis shoes. The surname, and sometimes first initial, of each player is found on the back of his caddie's uniform.
The defending champion always receives caddie number "1": other golfers get their caddie numbers from the order in which they register for the tournament.
The other majors and some PGA Tour events formerly had a similar policy concerning caddies well into the s;    the U.

The tournament is unique in that it is the only major tournament conducted by a private club rather than a national golf organization like the PGA.
Originally, the Masters was the only tournament to use two-man pairings during the first two rounds. It was also the only event to re-pair based on the leaderboard before Friday's round, as most tournaments only do this on the weekend.
This practice ended in the early s, when the Masters switched to the more standard three-man groups and the groups are now kept intact on Friday, with players sharing the same playing partners in both of the first two rounds.
After 36 holes of play, a cut-off score is calculated to reduce the size of the field for the weekend rounds. In , to "make the cut", players must be in the top 50 places ties counting.
From to , the top 40 scores including ties made the cut. From to , it was the top 44 and ties or within 10 strokes of the lead.
Following the cut, an additional 36 holes are played over the final two days. Should the fourth round fail to produce a winner, all players tied for the lead enter a sudden-death playoff.
Play begins on the 18th hole, followed by the adjacent 10th, repeating until one player remains. Adopted in , the sudden-death playoff was originally formatted to start on the first hole,  but was not needed for the first three years.
It was changed for to the inward final nine holes, starting at the tenth tee, where the television coverage began.
The current arrangement, beginning at the 18th tee, was amended for and first used the following year. Through , the eleven sudden-death playoffs have yet to advance past the second extra hole.
Earlier playoffs were 18 holes on the following day, except for the first in , which was 36 holes Gene Sarazen defeated Craig Wood ; the last hole playoff was in when Billy Casper defeated Gene Littler , and none of the full-round playoffs went to additional holes.
