Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters Tournament this weekend, but he doesn’t get a new green jacket.
As is the tradition, when someone wins the Masters, he’s presented with a new green jacket… unless he’s already won. In that case, like with Woods who’s won multiple times, he is presented with his previous jacket.
The rules surrounding the iconic award are simple:
- You only get to bring it home for the year after your win. The following year it has to stay at the club and can only be worn on the grounds.
- If you’ve won before you get the same jacket, unless your size has changed a lot.
And, Tiger’s jacket fit! Props to him for keeping in shape, since he first got the jacket at age 21 and he’s now 43.
