For any golf fan, it’s their dream to watch a tournament live. But with so many tournaments to choose from, it’s hard to know which one is worth spending your money on. Well, I’ve narrowed it down to four tournaments that I think every golf fan needs to attend at least once!

You’ll find the whole tournament experience to be breathtaking and just pure, unadulterated golf. That’s what The Masters is all about, golf, golf and more golf. Everything about the place is golf related; some people call it the home of the sport. There’s so much history around the grounds and on the course, it’s a wonderful sight to behold.

The Ryder Cup
This is the big daddy of team golf tournaments; there is no event that compares to it. The Ryder Cup is a battle between America & Europe, as they fight it out to see who is best. The Europeans are the current holders, but the Americans will be hoping to regain the trophy next year. This event is truly special as it only happens once every two years and changes venue each time. The Ryder Cup 2016 shall be hosted in Minnesota and will undoubtedly be one of the hottest tickets in world sport. What makes this event so great is the unique atmosphere of the crowds, it’s really like no other. Usually, you have a large crowd of people cheering for lots of different players on the course. But with this event the crowd is either cheering for Europe or America, so it gets very passionate!
