As PGA Tour players head out for their practice rounds at Augusta National on Monday, millions prepare to look skyward and view the solar eclipse, a rare celestial event where the moon passes between the sun and Earth, fully or partially blocking the sun's light.

Health experts say it's dangerous to view the eclipse without specialized solar eclipse glasses, which is why Augusta National Golf Club handed out Masters-themed glasses to fans on Monday—and they are nothing short of awesome.

ESPN's Marty Smith posted a picture of the glasses onto his account on X, formerly Twitter.

Not only do these glasses look sleek, but they are sure to be one heck of a collectible item as people look back on both the 2024 Masters and the solar eclipse years from now.

Kudos to Augusta National for making the eclipse experience even cooler than it already was going to be for fans.
