There’s no better place to make history at than The Masters.

Each year, the green jacket major rolls back around with seemingly even more anticipation.

Fresh storylines appear every time and 2024 is no different, so allow us to explain.

From Grand Slam champions in waiting, to breakthrough stars and legends of the game, here are seven records that could fall at The Masters this year.

The Grand Slam Club

Ten years on from Rory McIlroy’s last major championship win, the Northern Irishman will make another bid to enter one of golf’s most exclusive clubs. Only five players have won all four men’s majors, but the green jacket has slipped from McIlroy on several occasions.

LIV winner

What do Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm all have in common? Well, the quartet are all Masters champions and now ply their trade on LIV Golf. However, none were with the Saudi-backed circuit at the time, so could LIV Golf land its first official Masters winner this year? Rahm, Brooks Koepka and Joaquin Niemann spearhead the 13 in action at Augusta.

Roaring return

A Tiger Woods win would surely top all records on the line. That’s because the 48-year-old has won five Masters titles, just one less than Jack Nicklaus. Despite seeming unlikely, a Woods win would bring him equal with the Golden Bear, as he tries to bounce back from last year’s WD.

Birdie time

It feels like the talent on display increases at the Masters each year and 2024 looks no different. This year’s contest marks nine years since Jordan Spieth’s memorable triumph, in which the American recorded the most birdies in a single Masters tournament. His 28 birdies over four rounds are yet to be bettered, although Scottie Scheffler will certainly fancy a swipe at that.

New kid on the block

No rookie has won The Masters since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979, although there are a couple of leading contenders this year. Ludvig Aberg is making his first major championship start after bursting onto the scene last year, while Wyndham Clark is riding the crest of a wave. Eric Cole, Nicolai Hojgaard and Nick Dunlap are also making their Masters debut.

Cashing in

Who would’ve thought? Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods lead the all-time Masters career money list, respectively. The order could be about the change, though, if Woods can earn more than his countryman this year. Under $200,000 splits the pair at the top, while a win for Jordan Spieth would put him within touching distance of bragging rights.

Rahm repeat

Only three players (Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods) have won back-to-back Masters titles. The latest to try and emulate that feat is none other than Jon Rahm after his dominant win last year. The Spaniard revealed his champions dinner menu last week and it went down a storm. That could be the difference.

Going low

The lowest round ever at The Masters remains a nine-under-par round of 63. Nick Price’s effort in 1986 was matched by Greg Norman’s in 1996 but expect a few to come close again this year. With so many of the top players firing on all cylinders, it would come as no surprise to see one of them drop a 63 or lower.
