This tradition began in 1963, when Jock Hutchison and Fred McLeod, two former Masters champions, were asked to start the tournament.
Since then many great golfers including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Elder and Tom Watson, have been Honorary Starters.
The Honorary Starters are typically invited to participate in the Masters because of their outstanding contributions to the game of golf and their accomplishments as players.
