Tiger Woods Commitment Jumps Masters Ticket Prices

Tiger Woods has committed to the Masters, and now the dominoes begin to fall. Just after Tiger’s announcement,, the price of renting a weekly badge on Stubhub was nearly $1,200 higher than it was early Friday morning.

As of noon ET Thursday, the rental price for a weekly badge via Stubhub was $9,365.25, which then dropped a small percentage Friday morning. Then just minutes after Woods committed to playing the 2015 event, the price for a badge was about 12.5 percent higher at $10,535.25. 

That’s right; Week-long access is more than twice as costly than the reported price ($4,512) for a semester of in-state tuition at nearby Augusta State University. For just a Thursday-Sunday badge, the price sits at $6,245.

Other various packages are currently priced as follows:

Saturday & Sunday: $3,350
Sunday: $1,521.57
Saturday: $1,353
Thursday & Friday: $3,995
Friday: $1,590
Thursday: $1,770
Wednesday: $916.54
Tuesday: $522.39
Monday: $389.33

2015 weekly badge has now reached five figures, which rivals the 2013 price, which also floated north of $10,000 after Woods won multiple tournaments before the first major of the year. Prices dropped 31 percent in 2014 once Woods announced he would not be competing due to a back injury.
