The Master’s tournament foundation came into existence nearly a decade ago. The formation of that foundation was a combined effort of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament chairman Billy Payne. This is a charitable extension of that tournament and the aim is to invest in the development of golf not only in American but in other places in the world. It is going to be the platform in which anybody interested in developing that game can identify for the growth of the sports. Already they have done a lot to support the development of that game in many parts of the world. For instance, they are working together with the Asia Pacific Amateur Championship and the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation as well as the R and A since 2009. The aim is to develop the game in that part of the world.
Moreover, in the year 2013, the foundation worked together with other interest groups. The interest groups include the US golf association as well as the PGA America to develop Drive, Chip and Putt Championship in the country. This is part of the efforts to develop the game in the country.
Thirdly, the foundation is co-founding the Latin America Amateur Championship and they started this since 2014. They worked with R and A as well as the United States Golf Association to achieve this.
Moreover, the foundation has continued to support the growth of the First Tee through a financial contribution.
More than the master tournament through that foundation is doing a lot to ensure that the game of golf gained international recognition. They have a lot in this regard and the best way they have done that is to sponsor programs in radios and televisions across the world. They have such a program in more than two hundred countries across the world. This is in addition to such other programs they support such as the Junior pass. Besides they are seeing to it that the game develops technologically to make it more interesting.
One of the best things which the foundation of the tournament has bequeathed the world with is the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday. This program is great and it is considered one of the best for the game. The interesting thing about this is that it takes time almost at the time PGA Masters golf tournament attracts thousands of people. This is one of the ways of growing that game in the country and the world over.
