We were shocked to read that Masters practice round tickets were selling for $1,000, but that's nothing compared to the price of a four-day badge, which are selling for more than $13,000, according to Bloomberg's Eben Novy-Williams.

Masters Tournament ticket prices are up 276 percent on the secondary market as Tiger Woods enters the tournament as the world’s top-rated golfer for the first time since 2010.
Four-day badges for the golf season’s first major tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia are listed for an average of $13,820 on the secondary market, according to ticket aggregator TiqIQ, up from $3,675 last year and more than double the average each of the past three Masters.

The cheapest available four-day badge, whose face value is $250, is listed at $12,200, according to the website.
