It’s been just over 140 days since the last Masters, but we’re finally back in action once again at Augusta National Golf Club. If you’re not able to follow all of the action on television, you’ll still be able to follow the leaders of the pack on the radio.
This year marks the 85th birthday of the Masters, with world No 1 Dustin Johnson aiming to retain his crown.
The American breezed to victory last year, scoring 20 under par, including two stunning 65-shot rounds.
He was five shots clear of joint second-placed Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im.
Johnson goes into the 2021 tournament as the favourite, once again, but he’ll be facing a tough challenge from Bryson DeChambeau and Jordan Spieth.
“My game is in good shape,” said Johnson earlier this week.
“Maybe not quite as good of shape as it was in November, but I feel like it’s coming together.
“I’m starting to hit a lot of the same shots and getting a lot more comfortable over the golf ball. I feel like it’s in pretty good form.
“But I’ve worked on it the last couple of weeks and feel like I’ve played really good in Austin from tee-to-green. I felt like if we were playing stroke play, I felt like I would have played really well. When it’s match play, things happen.”

Elsewhere, DeChambeau is still looking for a top-20 finish in the Masters.
But, he’s insisted that he’ll never stop trying to improve, and he’s “very excited” about using a brand new driver for the competition.
He said: “Obviously there’s something in the bag this week that’s very helpful.
“Just know this has been a few years in the making, and I’m very excited for it. Whether it helps me perform at a higher level, I’m not sure, because it’s golf and you never know what happens.”
