The massive gallery following Tiger Woods reacts as he chips in for an eagle on the second hole during practice for the Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Club, Monday, April 2, 2018, in Augusta, Ga.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — When it comes to getting a ticket to an LSU baseball game compared to a Masters badge, there’s no comparison.

Tickets online for Friday’s LSU-Texas A&M game in College Station could be had for as little as $10. For a Masters ticket you had to go online and pay about $2,200 to a ticket broker for a Friday ticket (if you could even find one) or just under $1,300 for Saturday. The only way for non tournament badge holders to get their hands on face value tickets is to win the rights to buy one of the few single-day tickets in the annual pre-Masters lottery.

Concession prices are a different story. Put it simply, Augusta National doesn’t gouge, especially compared to a lot of other sports venues. A barbeque beef sandwich, bag of chips and a soda at Amen Corner could be had for $6.50, less than you would pay for a hamburger ($7) at Alex Box Stadium.

It’s not exactly and apples to apples comparison since the two venues offer few of the same items, but here’s a look at prices at the Masters and at LSU:
