Switch to Gem for live coverage of the first round of champions from 5am on Friday!

Less than five months after World No. 1 Dustin Johnson claimed his first green jacket, the world’s best golfers will be back in Augusta (AEDT) tomorrow morning to win the most prestigious award in the sport again

After the 2020 schedule was ruined by the COVID-19 pandemic, The Masters is returning to its traditional April slot The famous course is expected to play very differently than in November

Five Australians – Cameron Smith, Adam Scott, Jason Day, Marc Leishman and Matt Jones – are in the field, but with Day and 2013 Masters champion Scott, both of whom have fallen in the rankings in recent years, neither is them is considered one of the favorites

Perhaps the best seat among the Aussies that lead to The Masters is Smith, who reached his prime at age 27 and took over the cloak from Australia’s leading player (mullet haircut and all) He has long been considered a great champion in waiting and seems like the best chance of the five to win Australia’s first major title since Day, who won the PGA championship in 2015

He’s got a powerful American contingent in his way, led by Johnson and World No. 2 Justin Thomas

While Tiger Woods will be a notable absentee after being hospitalized in a shocking car accident in late February, his absence comes at a time when the top of the tree in world golf is littered with Americans, a multitude of whom above them is chances to put the green jacket on

Johnson and Thomas are the bookies’ top two picks, but close behind are Bryson deChambeau and resurgent Jordan Spieth, who broke his long drought on the PGA Tour last week with a win in Texas

Every four days of The Masters will air from 5:00 a.m. (AEST) on the first three days of the tournament and on Monday at 4:00 a.m. on Gem when the green jacket winner is determined

The tournament will also be streamed on 9Now Three special additional streams show Amen Corner, Feature Groups and the 15th and 16 Hole
