2018 Masters: Tournament Information and Fun With Brackets

A tradition unlike yada yada yada.

It’s time for the 2018 Masters golf tournament, and we have key information you want. We also turned the best golf tournament of the year into a bracket. That’s kind of what we do here.

The defending champion is Sergio Garcia, who finally put on the green jacket in 2017 after a number of disappointments. He enters 2018’s tournament as one of the top golfers in the world at the age of 38.

Most eyes, however, will be on Tiger Woods despite his low status in the World Golf Rankings. He’s 42 and not getting any younger, and he also hasn’t won a tournament since 2013. Nevertheless, he’s one of the legends of the game and when he steps out there, people are going to notice.

2018 Masters: The “Tournament”

Answering the question nobody asked: What if The Masters was a tournament with a bracket? We know what that would look like.

First, just like with college basketball or college hockey bracketology, first, you must know your field and rank them. There are 87 competitors in the 2018 Masters, and to develop the S-Curve, ranking the golfers from 1 to 87, we used the World Golf Rankings; no screwing around here. Only a few of them are unranked, and several are “tied” for last. Only there did we take a few liberties, putting past champions above amateurs.

So, when you see Tiger Woods way down the list, please spare me the hysterics. The World Golf Ranking is an objective coefficient produced by a formula, and Tiger was out of the mix for a while. To be the best, you have to beat the best, anyway. He should know what that’s like.

All of the 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 seeds are coming out of play-ins. The worst of the 11 seeds do as well. Everyone else goes straight to the Round of 64.

2018 Masters: The Faux Bracket, By Region

Oh, and how would the actual “tournament” work? Each pairing plays 18 holes, and best score wins. None of this Match Play business; it’s the Masters.
