The Masters 

Dates April 6-9 2022

Course Augusta National 

The first Major of the year will take place in early April, being played, as ever, at stunning Augusta National.

Scottie Scheffler is the defending champion after winning the tournament by three strokes, despite four-putting the final hole!

He battled Cameron Smith and a charging Rory McIlroy all day to cap off an imperious few months which saw him win the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay, and then The Masters in a two month span.

Augusta National is one of the most famous golfing venues on the planet, designed by Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie it has seen much drama over the decades.

Jack Nicklaus has won The Masters on the most occasions with six victories, while Tiger Woods will still be hoping to have another crack at winning another after he dramatically won his 5th Green Jacket in 2019.

Tiger may have missed the 2021 event but was back in action in 2022 and managed to finish 47th. This included rounds of 71-74-78-78. We expect Tiger to once again compete in 2023. 

Every year Rory McIlroy is one of the players that most comes under the microscope – he needs an Augusta victory to complete the career Grand Slam.

The Northern Irishman has come close on several occasions, no closer than in 2011 when he led by four shots going into the final round only to lose by 10 strokes. He also shot 64 during the final round in 2022 to come 2nd behind Scheffler.

So who will be slipping on a Green Jacket come the Sunday evening on 9th April 2023 - well we can't wait to find out!
