The 11 English Hopefuls At Augusta

England is represented by no fewer than 11 men this week at Augusta for the US Masters, a record for a single nation other than the USA.

In fact we could have 12, but three-time Masters champion Nick Faldo, now the lead analyst for CBS and the Golf Channel, has opted to keep his clubs in the bag.

In 2016, Danny Willett won the Green Jacket to become just the second Englishman to win the Masters after Nick Faldo's triumphs in 1989, 1990 and 1996.

Here are England's hopefuls at Augusta, in order of their Official World Golf Ranking...

Justin Rose OWGR: 14th Best Masters finish: T2, 2015

English Hopefuls At Augusta

The 2013 US Open winner and Olympic Gold Medallist hasn't finished outside of the top 25 at Augusta since 2011, and of course was runner-up to a dominant Jordan Spieth in 2015. Rose is coming into this week in good form, having had three top fours on the PGA Tour in 2017.

Paul Casey OWGR: 15th Best Masters finish: T4, 2016

English Hopefuls At Augusta

Casey had a great tournament last year, finishing in a tie for fourth, four back of Danny Willett. His form isn't tremendous but he hasn't missed a cut since mid-January.

Tyrrell Hatton OWGR: 16th Best Masters finish: Rookie

English Hopefuls At Augusta

Hatton is probably in the best form of the Englishman, having not missed a cut since September. He won the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in October, finished second at the DP World Tour Championship, played in the final group of the Honda Classic, and has adjusted well to life on the PGA Tour.

Danny Willett OWGR: 17th Best Masters finish: 1st, 2016

English Hopefuls At Augusta

The 2016 Masters champion has had a poor year by his standards and being defending champion this week will have to juggle his practice along with other commitments such as the champion's dinner.

Matt Fitzpatrick OWGR: 31st Best Masters finish: T7, 2016

English Hopefuls At Augusta

English Hopefuls At Augusta

Westy will always be spoken about in the lead-up to The Masters, with a host of top finishes. He was second to Phil Mickelson in 2010, T3rd in 2012, T8th in 2013, 7th in 2014 and second last year.
