8-11 April 2021
The 2021 Masters Tournament is set to be played at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA between 8 and 11 April. 
This will be the 85th edition of the tournament and the first of the men's four major golf championships to be held in 2021.
Spectators are set to return in 2021 in reduced numbers after the 2020 tournament was played behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the second year in succession, the traditional Par-3 Contest will not be held due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Dustin Johnson is the defending champion having won his maiden Masters' title last year at Augusta National Golf Club.
The American star won the tournament with a record score of 268, 20-under-par, five strokes ahead of Im Sung-jae and Cameron Smith.
Johnson will face stiff competition from big-name players such as Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, who are all ranked in the top five on golf's world rankings. 
Former Masters champions Sergio Garcia, Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Danny Willett and Vijay Singh will also be part of the 88-man field. 
Two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer, who was one of the world's leading golfers throughout the 1980s and 1990s, is looking forward to competing with young players this weekend. 
"It's fun to compete with these young guys every once in a while," Langer said. 
"I wouldn't want to do it every week because it would get a little frustrating on some of these courses. But, I feel I can still compete with them. I just don't have the long tee ball they have.
"If you had given me the equipment they have now in my 20s, I would have hit it quite a ways, too."
