2) The Green Jacket                                 (2 of 5)

 

Ahh..the green jacket. Something most golfers only dream of but few ever get the chance to wear.

Since 1949, a green jacket has been awarded to the tourney champion, who must return it to the clubhouse one year after their victory.

It remains his personal property and is stored with other champions’ jackets in a specially designated cloakroom.

If a player wins the tournament multiple times, they receive the same green jacket they originally won.

Last year’s winner was Jordan Spieth, who will be returning his jacket this year!
