The ceremony of the green jacket Masters 2019 is canceled and the presentation moved inside despite the weather worries

There will be no Masters Green Jacket Ceremony on the Augusta National Course at the end of the fourth round Sunday. Due to the mild weather expected in the afternoon, the iconic post-match celebration of the Masters winner was canceled in part because the authorities want to speed up the closing of the doors.

"There will be no Green Jackets ceremony on the green terrace this afternoon to speed up the closing of the gates," said Augusta National in a statement. "If time permits, we will have pictures with the champion on the putting green after the presentation of Butler Cabin Green Jacket."

Meteorological concerns have already played an important role in the evolution of Sunday's finals, with departures marked at 7:30 and players thrown back into trios. Time will tell if the move will allow golfers to complete their final round.

As tradition dictates during the green jacket ceremony, last year's Masters winner – in this case, Patrick Reed – will award the last green jacket to the back of this year's winner. If we finish Monday, which has not happened since 1983, the ceremony may be reinstated, weather permitting.
