TV, streaming, Round 1 tee times at Augusta National


play

The PGA’s first major gets underway on Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club as 91 players, including six amateurs, vie to conquer the 7,510 yard course and take home the Green Jacket at the Masters. 

Hideki Matsuyama won last year’s tournament with a one-shot victory over Will Zalatoris and will attempt to become the first golfer to score back-to-back victories since Tiger Woods pulled off the feat in 2001 and 2002.

The playing status of Woods is another top storyline as he continues to work his way back to playing after severe leg injuries suffered in an automobile accident in February 2021.  But during a press conference on Tuesday, Woods said he felt like he was going to play — 25 years after his first Masters victory in 1997. Woods has a tee time on Thursday at 10:34 a.m. ET.

Here is all the information you need to get ready for Thursday’s first-round at the 86th Masters at Augusta National Golf Club:
