The Best Masters Drinking Game

April 4, 2016

There’s nothing like getting a little bit tipsy while you watch a sporting event, and the Masters has enough quirks and yes, lovably reliable traditions, to keep you and your friends going for days. See our rules for the best Masters drinking game below. (Even better, we’ve got recipes for Masters-themed cocktails, perfect for toasting and sipping during the tournament.)

Take a drink when:
— An announcer says “patrons”
— The camera pans to a shot of the azaleas
— Jim Nantz says “Hello, friends.”
— CBS shows highlights of Jack Nicklaus’ triumph in 1986
— Someone says “the new Big Three”

Take a shot when:
— Zach Johnson reaches a par-5 in two
— 3-wood loving Henrik Stenson hits driver
— Justin Thomas is referred to as “Jordan’s friend”
— A ball lands in Rae’s Creek
— Someone says “pine straw”

Finish your drink if:
