Masters 2021: How to win a green jacket in seven simple steps
Masters 2021: How to win a green jacket in seven simple stepsBecause, in spite of its trappings of tradition, Augusta National and the Masters sure change a heck of a lot. From reversing nines after the inaugural tournament to brandishing a it-sure-looks-like-rough-but-don’t-call-it-rough second cut last fall, Augusta National is in perpetual evolution. It is an evolution partially dictated by the transformation in how the game is played and what it rewards.
It's back to being a tradition unlike any other, like all the others. The Masters, postponed in 2020 andfor the first time in history, returns to its familiar place on the spring sports calendar with a semblance of normalcy.
Five months ago, Dustin Johnsonof his career from Tiger Woods under unusual COVID-19 circumstances, without fans on a rain-scrunched November weekend. Fans are back at Augusta National in a limited capacity, but Woods is not. Golf's 44-year-old superstar is recovering from a in February and will miss his first Masters since 2017.
Masters 2021: Twenty years ago, Tiger Woods faced more pressure than any golfer in history
In preparing for the 2001 Masters, Tiger Woods faced endless questions about what winning four straight majors would mean, and whether he could do it.“When do you start thinking about Augusta?”
Johnson, ranked No. 1 in the world,to win along with Bryson DeChambeau atop the 88-player field. There hasn't been a repeat winner in back-to-back years at the Masters since Woods in 2001-02. DeChambeau, who finished T-34th in 2020's tournament, has not placed higher than T-21st at Augusta.
Jordan Spieth (+1200) also has momentum on his side thanks to a win at the Valero Texas Open last weekend, stirring the hopes of his supporters. The three-time major winner took golf by storm in 2015 by capturing the Masters and the U.S. Open, but he hadn't won much of anything since the 2017 British Open.
Jon Rahm (+1200), Justin Thomas (+1200) and Rory McIlroy (+1900) are expected to be among the other top challengers to accept a green jacket from Johnson this weekend.
