It goes without saying that the Masters is one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world. Even the merchandise sales are on a different level.
The week of the tournament, the Masters pro shop does absolute numbers in terms of sales. Darren Rovell of The Action Network broke down just how much money is made over the seven day period.
According to Rovell, the pro shop at Augusta rakes in $850,000 an hour. In total, it will make about $50 million from Monday to Sunday.

The final round of this year’s Masters started early this morning due to impending bad weather in the area. We could be in for a tremendous finish.
Francesco Molinari, last year’s Open Championship winner, leads the field right now by one stroke. He’s at -12 for the weekend.
However, Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka are right behind at -11, with Tony Finau and Ian Poulter lurking at -10. Molinari is leaving himself open to a major challenge down the stretch.
You can catch the final round on CBS.
