What is it?

The 84th staging of the Masters tournament at Augusta National. This will be a Masters like no other in November, after the tournament was postponed in April due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

When is it?

The tournament begins on Thursday November 12 with the final day on Sunday November 15. Due to Covid-19 protocols, there will be no Par Three Contest on the Wednesday as is Masters tradition. 

What time will the action finish?

Earlier than usual. There are fewer hours of daylight in Georgia at the this time of year, so golf fans in the UK can benefit from some early nights. Play should be completed by 10pm on the first three days, and the winner could be crowed before 8pm UK time on Sunday due to US broadcasters needing to squeeze NFL matches into prime-time slots.

What TV channel is it on?

Sky Sports have exclusive live coverage, and there have been reports that the green jacket brigade at Augusta are considering relaxing their broadcasting restrictions to allow more morning coverage. There will be highlights on BBC each night. Alternatively, you can bookmark this page and return to follow all the action with our live blog. 

Sky will have featured group coverage from 12.30pm on day one, with full live coverage beginning at 6pm. The same applies for Friday. 

Who are the contenders?

US Open Champion Bryson DeChambeau is the pre-tournament favourite, and his prodigious length threatens to overpower Augusta. Footage has emerged of DeChambeau launching drives more than 360-yards through their air on the Augusta driving range, which could be an enormous advantage in the soft November conditions.
