What would rather win?

From my understanding most folk on here have the masters as the 'best' major, does the Open being placed in St Andrews change this? Particularly in 2021 when it will be the 150th running of the event.

What about those on the tour, will the Americans value it as highly?

They're both beloved, iconic tournaments.

I'm sure each tournament will have its partisans, but I think its like choosing between being a great putter, or a great ball striker. Why not both?

And yeah, I'd love to miss the cut in either tournament, let alone win the thing.

The one thing I will say for the Open, is I prefer how much more accessible it is to those wishing to buy tickets. Although, the exclusivity I suppose is part of the Masters' cachet.

I will take the Masters on any given year, but the real question was Masters vs 150th at St Andrews. I’d take St Andrews 150th mark on history. Any other variable means I’d take the Masters.

Personally, I don't feel like it adds anything just because it's the 150th time it's been played.  I wouldn't put any more significance on the 150th compared to the 149th or the 151st.

With that being said, it's the Masters.

I'll take The Open @ St. Andrews thank you.

As cool as winning The Masters would be I'm way too un-PC for that place.    They'd photoshop me out of all the Champions Dinner pictures.

The only thing that puts them in the same ball park in my opinion is that itís a British open at St Andrews. British open at any other venue  is not nearly as cool as the masters. That being said I would go with the masters all the way.
