A Masters week tradition will apparently take a hiatus this year. The Mayor’s Masters Reception will not be held during tournament week this year.
The reception has been held the past 15 years, but organizer Wayne Hawkins says no golfer who’s played in the Masters Tournament would commit to attend the event this year.
In past years, the reception has honored golfers like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. Hawkins says he’ll try to revive the reception during next year’s tournament.
