Sneakylong The Masters is my least favorite Major. I don't like their less is more policy regarding TV coverage. Most of us will never see a Masters in person. The only time you see the front 9 is on the weekend. I agree with Trevino on their elitist attitude.
After getting tickets through one of my Dad's friend for this year's Monday practice round, I actually am more turned off by the way the Masters handles their tournament with regards to tickets, etc. I honestly don't understand the mayhem that is a lottery for tickets, and the limitation on spectators, and being forced to call them "patrons" and a hundred or so other "rules" that no other tournament uses or employs.
I live less than 3 hours from Ponte Vedra Beach, and my wife and I are traveling over to attend the Saturday round of the Players tournament next month. We went last year and had a great time. And because I was prior military I got tickets for $25. Beyond the chaos of parking, once you are on the grounds it's like one big party, especially around #17. Everyone was having a good time, and anyone that wanted in to the place could get in. I didn't need a lottery, or to know someone, or to be 6 generations removed from Bob Jones' family and friends. I could take pictures, and enjoy myself and go anywhere I wanted, without fear of some security guard telling me I couldn't do that. I hardly noticed much of a different between the people at the Masters and the Players, other than there were exponentially more hot women in low cut whatever at the Players to give my eyes a constant thrill.
I suppose it's the fact that when you do get tickets to the Masters you feel like you won something, which you have, and any other tournament might be no big deal for the same reason, because you can go anytime you want, if you have the time and money. But give it 10 or 20 years and the Players will have enough tradition and memories to rank right up there with the Masters. Just one example, but you get the idea.
I honestly can do without the Masters and their elitist snobbery. There are plenty of other PGA tournaments within an easy drive of my house to attend and support that have the same level of golf, and mostly the same players.
