Just last week, we brought you this story about how tickets to the Masters are the most prestigious in golf and among the most prestigious and sought-out in all of sports.
 
Today, Yahoo.com's Shane Bacon has a story suggesting that today's second-round tickets may just be the hottest Masters ticket ever.
 
Why?
 
 
It makes sense when you start looking into it.
 
First, Tiger goes late on Friday, meaning if you wanted to see his entire round you could get out a little later and follow him. Second, the early groupings mean you can see a ton of guys that either have big names or are in contention right out of the gate. Sergio Garcia is already on the course, as is Dustin Johnson and Fred Couples, so right there you can hit up some of the leaders early on in your Friday viewing experience.
 
I'm sure there have been weekend tickets that have been tougher to come by, but for a Friday this is pretty exciting, and we haven't even mentioned 14-year-old Tianlang Guan trying to make the cut.
