Tiger Woods in Contention at Augusta: Masters Badges in High Demand

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - April 9, 2010) - FanSnap®, the leading live event ticket search engine, today announced that fans can find hundreds of Masters Golf Tournament badges, for rounds three and four on Saturday and Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia with FanSnap.

Tiger Woods shot a first round 68 and a second round 70. At six shots under par, he's tied for third going into the weekend rounds and in striking distance of leaders Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter. Prices for Saturday and Sunday are nearly triple what they were in 2009 and increasing.

- Saturday-only (Round 3) Masters badges start at $1,035
