Dustin Johnson poses with the trophy at August in 2020

The 2021 Masters is upon us with the world’s best golfers descending on Augusta National for one of the most prestigious tournaments in all of sport.

World number one Dustin Johnson surged clear to win the rearranged tournament just five short months ago and returns hoping to make more Green Jacket history.

The American is the betting favourite to join Woods, Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus as the only players to win back-to-back Masters titles despite some indifferent recent form by his standards, with a rejuvenated Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm close behind.

Spieth’s victory in the Valero Texas Open on Sunday and his superb record in this tournament make him an obvious danger, while Players Championship winner Thomas and new father Rahm have previously contended for a green jacket.

In contrast, DeChambeau’s best finish in five starts remains a tie for 21st while still an amateur and the US Open champion has pledged to maintain his uniquely aggressive approach despite struggling to a tie for 34th in November.

Rory McIlroy will be hoping to break his Augusta duck as he bids to complete a career grand slam while Lee Westwood, rejuvenated and back at the very top of his game, is desperate to add just one major to cap a fine career.

Prediction

All eyes will be on Bryson DeChambeau come Thursday with the US Open champion’s distance threatening to transform golf in the most evident way since Tiger Woods’ emergence over two decades ago. DeChambeau did not handle the pressure all that well last November, however, he has played impressively since then and now has greater experience of Augusta’s nooks and crannies. It is unlikely to be the type of runaway victory many fear, though, with the course certain to provide a sterner test.
