When a player wins the tournament, the tradition is that he will receive his own green sports jacket. The tradition was established by Augusta National Golf Club co-founder Clifford Roberts, and has been going on since 1949. It’s also a tradition for the previous year’s winner to help the new winner put on his new jacket during the closing ceremony.
In addition to the jacket, winners receive a gold medal and have their name engraved on the master’s trophy. Winners of the Masters Tournament are automatically invited to the three other major championships for the next 5 years and will receive lifetime invitations to the Masters. Players who perform great feats are also eligible to receive various luxurious gifts. For example, the player with the lowest daily score receives a crystal vase, the players who manage to score a double eagle or score a hole-in-one win a large crystal bowl, and the players receive crystal goblets for every eagle they make.
EDIT: Sergio Garcia has won the 201 7 Masters Tournament.
