Why Masters Concessions Are The Best Deal in Golf

Tour Confidential: Does the Masters Need Tiger Woods?
Tiger Woods opted to skip the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, leaving many questioning whether he'll be back in time for the Masters. But does the tournament, with so many bright stars, really need him? Our panel discusses.

The Masters concessions are truly a tradition unlike any other. 

The prices are cheap, the food quality is above-average and did we mention the prices are cheap? Getting into the gates of Augusta National for the Masters is notoriously expensive – StubHub has weekly badges going for a cool $9,950.25 – but once you're settled in at your favorite viewing spot on the course, you can eat like a king.

Ten bucks can get a cup of coffee ($1.50) and a chicken biscuit ($1.50) for breakfast, followed by an egg salad sandwich ($1.50) and chips ($1) for lunch with a beer ($3) to wash it down and a cookie ($1) for dessert. With fifty cents to spare!

Two items on the menu that are quintessential Augusta: the pimento cheese sandwich and Georgia Peach ice cream sandwich, the latter being a massive slab of peach ice cream smashed between two sugar cookies with a nap being required immediately after.
