Field finalised for rescheduled Masters

Masters 10 Things 6

With its new date locked-in, the rescheduled 2020 Masters just needs some players to take part.

Consider it done.

Less than 48 hours after it was announced that this year’s coronavirus-impacted tournament would be taking place in the week beginning November 9, the Augusta National Golf Club has confirmed the list of players that it will be inviting to take part.

A total of 96 players make up the field for the tournament, including all of those who should have been playing this week, plus any others – not otherwise exempt – who had made it into the top-50 on the Official World Golf Rankings when the standings were paused on March 20.

That means good news for four players, in particular: Collin Morikawa, Scottie Scheffler and Christiaan Bezuidenhout – each of whom will make their Masters debuts this autumn – and former US Open champion Graeme McDowell, who will tee it up at Augusta National for the first time since 2016.

No further changes to the field will take place between now and November and players who turn down the invitation will not be replaced.

In the event that all 96 invited players take part, this year’s field will include 26 rookies, six amateurs and 19 past champions.

Here’s a look at the field in full:
