11:00, 31 Mar 2022

The famous green jacket is up for grabs once again as the golf world descends on Augusta, Georgia for four days of the most tremendous stroke play that the world’s finest have to offer. 

The Masters Tournament is famously the first major available for players on the PGA, Japan and DP World Tours, with many young stars making a name for themselves on the hallowed green grass. 

News of the return of Tiger Woods is enough to make any sports fan excited, with many excited supporters tracking his private jet’s flights between his Florida home and airports in Georgia where he’s been visiting to play practice rounds ahead of his imminent return to golf.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of an incredible week at Augusta National…

Where: Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia, USA 

How To Watch: You can watch all of the action from Georgia everyday of the week on Sky Sports The Masters dedicated channel. Highlights of all the championship rounds will be available on BBC Two at midnight of the same day, as well as the morning after. 

See our schedule below for what you can watch and when.

When: April 7th - April 10th 2022. Coverage begins at 2pm on Thursday & Friday and at 7pm on Saturday & Sunday. 

The Course: Augusta National is regarded as one of the world’s finest and well-kept golf courses. The course plays tribute to it’s past when it served as a plant nursery by naming all 18 holes after the tree or shrub with which it has become associated. It’s iconic flower arrangements and ryegrass fairways give it an incredibly unique look and tone that’s familiar to any golfer.

The greens famously run hard and fast, allowing the skilled wedge-hitters to play some incredible shots that can fizz along the green in almost any direction required. It's bunkers have replaced the use of regular sand with granulated quartz to keep their golden look and it’s second cut of rough along the fairways provide a second chance to anyone that lands in there, allowing for a good flow of play.

Defending Champion: Hideki Matsuyama (12th)

Who’s Missing: Phil Mickelson is taking a leave of absence from the sport after some comments about the Saudi Golf League, and Tiger Woods is still absent as far as anyone knows, but he has been to Augusta for some practice rounds in the last week so there could be a surprise. 

Rickie Fowler will be absent as he’s dropped to 122nd place in the Official World Golf Ranking. He finished in second place in 2018, just a shot behind champion Patrick Reed. Ian Poulter also didn’t finish high enough in the World Golf Rankings either, meaning that he remains at 16 Augusta appearances for now.
