    depends...there is nothing like real competition, though the practice rounds they often allow cameras and are a bit more laid back....
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    If you can only go 1 day, then Mon and Wed include Pro-ams, so I would pick Tuesday if you want to take your camera and get pics. Otherwise pick Thursday/Friday as you will get to see all the golfers, Sat/Sun a lot of them will have missed the cut and be gone.

    Thursday. Crowds may be less than Friday. You won't see the finish, so might as well go for the best day for seeing and getting close to as many golfers as possible.

    I'd attend the Wednesday practice round. It's a lot easier to take time to watch the players in action, especially on the practice range, and to take pictures, if you're interested in that. In 2000 my wife and I were at Augusta National for the Wednesday practice round and par 3 tournament. I cannot imagine a better way to get a feel for the course and a sense for the unbelievable talent that these pros have.

    I've also watched an entire tournament (from Wednesday through Sunday). That was enjoyable as well. However, the developing drama that TV can captures so well (especially on Sunday afternoon) is missing when you're there in person. You definitely get a slice of that from your limited perspective, but it is just that - limited.

    It's going to be my first time, to go see a big tournament.
    Could someone describe me about Monday & Wednesday which included Pro-ams ?

    Thanks!

    If your golf swings feels natural you're doing it wrong
