Masters 2019 players: Who is playing in the Masters this year?

The Augusta National Golf Club, USA, is set to host the Masters tournament from next week.

The four-day competition will see the world’s best golf players return to the course in a bid to win a famous Green jacket, but who looks likely to take it home this year?

Rory Mcllory, 29, could win the Augusta National and swipe himself a Grand Slam. 

He’s faced humbling defeats on the course before but his sharpened skills and increased self-belief could see him go could go 12 under on the par 5s alone, this year.

Golf veteran Tiger Woods also stands a chance. 

Woods knows Augusta better than most in the field and even in his worst years, he’s finished in the top 20 there. 

If he takes the jacket home it will be his fifth Masters win.
