There has been a change to Augusta National Golf Club's COVID-19 testing protocols for Masters Tournament patrons.

Fans attending the practice rounds and the Masters will no longer be required to provide proof of a negative COVID test prior to entry. Those attending are still encouraged to get tested before arriving to Augusta.

Ticket holders were notified of the change in an email Wednesday afternoon. The protocols can also be found on the Masters website under the Patron Info tab.

The new policy only applies to those with practice round tickets, daily tournament tickets and series badges. Berkman's Place ticket holders will still have to take the at-home test 72-hours prior to arriving and an on-site test the day of attending.

The other safety protocols for the tournament are still in place, including mandatory face coverings, social distancing, hand sanitizing and cashless payments.
