England and Tottenham hero Harry Kane is at Augusta National for the final round of The Masters around 24 hours after leading Tottenham to a 4-0 win away to Aston Villa.

Kane was spotted in the Sky Sports studio ahead of the final round at Augusta where Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Smith battle it out for their maiden Major titles and the coveted Green Jacket.

The striker is backing Cam Smith to win this year's opening men's Major, saying "He can make birdies, get on a hot run on the back nine. I fancy him to be four-or-five-under today."

Kane also said in the Sky studio how he gets more nervous playing golf than football, and that he has a huge appreciation for the world's best golfers after seeing the slopes and severity of Augusta National.

"Sometimes when I'm on the first tee in front of a crowd I'll get more nervous than what I do when I'm playing football so just appreciating what they're doing," he said. "I mean when you see some of the holes and the slopes on the greens around this place. It just shows how good they are when they're making so many birdies."

Kane is a big golf fan and a very good player himself, having shot under par for the first time back in 2018. The Englishman is known to play at Beaverbrook Golf Club in Leatherhead, Surrey, one the UK's most exclusive golf clubs. He is thought to have a very low single digit handicap and is one of the best golfing footballers along with Andriy Schevchenko and John Terry.

John Terry recently announced on social media that he had achieved his goal of becoming a scratch golfer following his retirement in 2018. Terry plays at Wentworth Golf Club, also in Surrey.

Twitter was quick to notice Harry Kane on our TV screens at Augusta National, with SportNation tweeting: "How’d he get there so quick!!??"
