The greatest prizes in sports
What golfer hasn't quipped about winning the Green Jacket? Formally awarded since 1949, the green jacket is given in addition to a cash prize to the winner of the Masters, held every year at ultra-exclusive Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. The jacket is the official attire worn by members of Augusta National, which makes every recipient and Masters winner an honorary member of the club. Sam Snead's first Masters title began the tradition.
Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods (pictured left to right) have won the green jacket a combined seven times.
