In addition to a cash prize, the winner of this tournament is
presented with a X, formally awarded since 1949, and
informally acquired by the champions for many years before
that. The X is the official attire worn by members of Augusta
National while on the club grounds; each Y winner becomes
an honorary member of the club. Winners keep their X for the
first year after their first victory, then return it to the club to
wear whenever they visit. The tradition began in 1949, when
Sam Snead won his first of three Y titles.
The X is only allowed to be removed from Augusta National by
the reigning champion, after which it must remain at the club.
Exceptions to this rule include Gary Player, who in his joy of
winning mistakenly took his X home to South Africa after his
1961 victory .ID X AND Y.

though through the years ,safety efforts have led to fewer
mishaps, a new report suggests that the sport still continues
to cause more serious and deadly injuries than other sports.

between 1982 and 2007, that there were 103 fatal, disabling
or serious injuries recorded among female athletes, with
the vast majority (67) occurring in X. The next most
dangerous sports: gymnastics (nine such injuries) and track
