    Sure, Mike Belle is excited about making his debut on the PGA Tour Canada-Mackenzie Tour circuit at the season-opening Canada Life Open at Point Grey Golf & Country Club. Almost as excited as his dad.

    When Belle finally earned his Mackenzie Tour status in what was his third attempt at qualifying school earlier this month, he knew right away who he wanted by his side at Point Grey. He asked his dad, Ralph, who introduced him to the game 20 years ago at Vancouver Golf Club, to caddie for him.

    The two of them, often accompanied by Belle’s mom, Kim, have played more rounds than they can count over the past couple of decades.

    “It’s not really like a normal golf tournament because it’s more stressful all the way through,” said the Knoxville, Tennessee native. “At the same time, it’s almost more satisfying just because you have one shot every year to do it, so to show up and have some game when it matters, that means a lot.”

  • 2019 Masters Tee Times

    By Christopher Powers/GolfDigest

    The Masters can't get here soon enough, and it will always signal the beginning of golf season, specifically for those who live in cold-weather areas.

    The sights and sounds at Augusta National kick off the year in a way that no other tournament can, and this year's edition of the Masters promises to be a special one. There are too many intriguing storylines to count, with Rory McIlroy's quest for the career Grand Slam leading the way following his Players Championship victory.

    Of course, there's also Tiger Woods, who will be the main draw as long as he's still healthy enough to compete at Augusta National. Patrick Reed, whose game is beginning to trend in the right direction, is the defending champion.

  • Frequently Asked Questions From The Masters

    Augusta National has rules to follow but also provides tournament staples that everyone must have. Here is a list of some Frequently Asked Questions when it comes to attending The Masters at Augusta National in April.

  • Augusta National Tightens The Rules On Ticket Reselling

    The Masters is stiffening policies when it comes to leaving and re-entering the grounds to prevent mass amounts of merchandise and tournament badges being re-sold on the market.

    Masters officials have cracked down on the number of times a patron can enter the grounds per day from three to two. This news was posted on The Masters website.

  • Current Masters Odds

    The 2019 Masters field is set. With Corey Conners' win at the Valero Texas Open, the field has moved from 86 to 87 to match last year's small field, with Patrick Reed eventually earning the Green Jacket.

    The 87 golfers in each of the last two Masters represent the smallest field for the first major of the year since there were 86 golfers in the field when Tiger Woods won in 1997.

    According to CBS Sports golf columnist Kyle Porter, "Conners is a nice late addition, but he's obviously not one of the favorites. This year's Masters favorite happens to also be the best golfer on the PGA TOUR this season and the man to whom a victory here would probably mean the most of any of the superstars in the game.

    "Rory McIlroy is an 8-1 favorite to win his first Masters, and he's followed closely by Dustin Johnson at 10-1 and Justin Rose at 12-1. Combined, that trio has 10 top 10s in 11 Masters over the last four years."
