The Masters is upon us once again, and with the return of the spring (not to mention full galleries) to the confines of Augusta National, it is time to drink and make merry here in our Aussie living rooms.

So whatever your beverage of choice, be it beer, wine or coffee-infused liqueurs for those early mornings, join us as we raise a glass to golf’s greatest weekend with our 2022 Masters Drinking Game.

Please sip responsibly, friends.


When that piano starts tinkling, you know the tune

Every time the TV broadcast actually shows an Australian player

Every time Rae’s Creek claims another victim

For every mention of the return of “patrons”

For every mention of Bryson’s hip

For every mention of Tiger’s leg

For every shot from the pine straw

For any flower talk (hole nicknames count)

For any mention of Cam Smith’s mullet.

Drink for three seconds …

For every “Hello friends”

For the token Joe Ford appearance

If Jim Nantz says “a return to normalcy” instead of “a return to spring”

When they inevitably show Hideki Matsuyama’s caddie bowing last year

When the conversation turns to Rory’s career grand slam pursuit (evergreen)

Each time the alterations to 11 and 15 are discussed

Every (or any) Sunday lead change

If they run the Jack ’86 highlight package


If you are wearing any form of Masters memorabilia

Finish your beverage …

For every “Georgia On My Mind” instead of “Augusta” curveball

If the weather horn sounds

If Adam Scott is still wearing that tanned sweater

Every time one of your bets actually cashes

For Tiger’s opening tee shot

If Tiger makes the cut

If Tiger wins

If Harry Higgs removes his shirt

If someone accidentally says “Phil” out loud

If you find yourself actually missing Phil (better make it two)

If they show Greg Norman crumpling to his knees in ’96 (spitting out your drink also accepted)
