The Masters: The 2021 field in full

Masters Flag

Just five months on from our most recent visit, it's almost time to return to Augusta National for the 85th edition of The Masters.

Most recently contested in November, due to schedule adjustments caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's tournament will see world No.1 Dustin Johnson attempt to become just the fourth player in history to successfully defend the Green Jacket.

Standing in the two-time major champion's way will be a traditionally first-class, including Rory McIlroy, who will be making his seventh attempt at completing the career grand slam. The Northern Irishman is one Masters victory away from golfing immortality - will this be the year that he achieves it?

The tournament is on from April 8-11. Here's a look at how the field is shaping up.
