April 2 (UPI) — Tiger Woods is playing in his first Masters Tournament in three years, but that isn’t the only interesting storyline at the 2018 version of the tournament at August National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.

About 250,000 people visit Augusta annually for the tournament, with the average resale ticket price for Sunday’s final round going for $2,100, according to WalletHub.

More than 16 hours have been added to the live telecast of the tournament since 1956.

Here are official tee times, where to watch and highlights from the annual golf tournament:

Ceremonial tee shot

Six-time Masters winner Jack Nicklaus and three-time tournament champion Gary Player teed off the 82nd Masters Tournament. The honorary starters were announced by Augusta National Golf Club chairman Fred Ridley.

Player grooved his drive first, smoking the left-handed shot, before Nicklaus came out for a few jokes and another celebrated drive.
