Masters Tournament Begins Thursday


(Augusta, GA) - The Masters tees off Thursday from Augusta National Golf Course in Georgia. 

One of the golf's most prestigious tournaments returns to its regular April start after the coronavirus pandemic pushed it to November last year. A limited number of fans will also be allowed back for this year's event.

Among the favorites to take home the Green Jacket are Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Louisville native Justin Thomas.  Johnson came away as the winner in 2020. 

Five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods will be watching from home after being seriously injured during a February car crash.
