Masters week is here to the joy of golfers and patrons alike. The Masters Tournament is one of golf's most popular events, hosting seven days of golf with the sport's top players.

Keep reading for the full itinerary for Masters 2022 below.
Where Is the Masters in 2022?
The 86th Masters will take place at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. The Augusta National Golf Course is Georgia's most desirable course, designed by golf legend Bobby Jones and well-renowned architect Alister Mackenzie.
The course is the “American Dream,” designed in a meadowland style with the turf trimmed to perfection. Dashes of white sand scattered throughout the fairways add to the course's beautiful landscape.
Each hole comes with unique challenges for players. And, course designers have changed one or two holes after previous tournaments to keep the course challenging.
While the Augusta National Golf Course is home to the Masters championship, it's one of the most popular courses for golfers around the world.
2022 Masters Golf Schedule
Here's a day-by-day rundown of the event:
Monday and Tuesday, April 4-5th - Practice
The first two days of the event are for practice rounds. All the pros are allowed to play a few rounds to get a feel for the course, work on their game and prepare for what may be the most important rounds of their career.
Note that if you're watching the event in person, these are the only days you're allowed to take your camera with you. If you plan to get some photos or videos of your favorite players, this and the Par 3 contest on Wednesday are your chance to do so.
Wednesday, April 6th - Par 3 Contest
Wednesday is for the famous Par 3 contest, played on a separate 9-hole course located in the Northeast section of the Augusta National Golf Course.
This practice run is a tradition where players have friends and family members participate. Some players will let kids be their caddy, making it an immersive experience for attendees.
There are also some superstitions surrounding the Par 3 contest. No player has ever won the contest and won the actual Masters tournament.
Thursday, April 7th - Tournament Starts at 8:00 am
The honorary tee-off starts nice and early, at 8:00 am on Thursday. The tournament usually selects two honorary players to tee off first. For the 85th Masters in 2021, they were Gary Player, Lee Elder, and Jack Nicklaus.
Friday, April 8th - Second Tournament Round Starts at 8:00 am
Friday is the start of the second round. The course is full of players, usually playing in groups of 3. After this round, the roster is cut, so only the top 50 players remain.
Saturday, April 9th - Third Tournament Round Starts at 10:00 am
Round 3 begins on Saturday, April 9th, at 10:00 am. Here the tee-off order is reversed based on scores. Golfers the furthest behind tee off first, and those in the lead tee off last.
Sunday, April 10th - Fourth Tournament Round Starts at 10:00 am
The fourth and final round starts on Sunday, April 10th, at 10:00 am. For this round, players in the lead will tee off sometime between 2:00-2:30 pm.
The tournament usually finishes around 7:00 pm, and the winner will receive the legendary green jacket. For the final round, players usually play in pairs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Is Phil Mickelson Not Playing the Masters 2022?
Three-time Masters winner Phil Mickelson will not be participating in the 2022 Masters Tournament after removing himself from the list. The reason is due to complications about some remarks he made about a rival Saudi-funded league and the PGA Tour.
During an interview with Digest, Mickelson accused the PGA Tour of having “obnoxious greed.” This comment has sparked controversy, and Mickelson has been out of the public eye ever since. He also doesn't agree with participating with a Saudi-funded league for personal issues of his own and does not agree with the country's history of human rights abuses.
The 86th Masters Tournament will be the first not to see Phil Mickelson play since 1994. Hopefully we will see him back on the grounds next year!
The 2022 Masters tournament will be an exciting and historic week of golf.
