The 87th edition of the Masters Tournament takes place at Augusta National Golf Club from April 6-9 – and it’s shaping up to be one of the most fascinating in years.

Confirmation that LIV golfers will be allowed to compete in the first major of the year has added an interesting twist to proceedings.

Currently, 16 players who are tied to the Saudi-funded tour are eligible to take part, including six past champions.

Scottie Scheffler, of course, will be the man to beat following his maiden major victory in April 2022 but all eyes will be on Rory McIlroy as he seeks to become only the sixth player ever to complete the career grand slam. A green jacket is all that stands between the Irishman and sporting immortality.
