Two Master’s degrees?

Watching a rerun of the 2012 Poker Championships, my man saw this. We had a ‘robust discussion’ about where the apostrophe should appear.
Any suggestions?

AA: That is correct.  Singular: master’s degree.  Plural: master’s degrees.

Agreed! This one is possessive as well. It’s the degree of the Master, or the Master’s degree.

Laura says:

According to the Associated Press style, the apostrophe is correct.

Thanks for the link, but it returns, “Not Found. Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.”
