60-year-old golf fan proudly shows off long-awaited first Masters tickets to mailman in adorable video

April 01, 2024

As the old saying goes, the Masters doesn't start until the back nine on Sunday. But that's certainly not the case for those fortunate enough to score tickets to days earlier in the week.

One 60-year-old was able to nab some passes for Monday's practice round. And he couldn't seem more thrilled.

It seems this grandpa had been striking out in the Masters ticket lottery for a couple of decades before breaking through. And upon finally receiving his golden green-enveloped tickets in the mail, he proudly showed them off to the UPS guy delivering them. Have a look:

We completely get it. As one study a couple years back showed, your chances of winning the Masters ticket lottery is about the same as winning the actual lottery. And we've seen countless examples of even veteran golfers freaking out over receiving their tournament invites.

So good for you, man. And good for you that you've got a wife(?) supportive enough to put together that fun little video that included the Masters theme song. And good for the mailman for acting like he actually cares and even flashing a Phil Mickelson-esque thumbs-up:

Just good stuff all around. Masters week can't get here soon enough—especially for this guy. Safe travels, my man.
