The world’s best golfers set to fight for first major championship of the season just five months after their last fight for a sacred green jacket A field of 88 hope to write their names in the books of US Masters history – and Paddy Power News brings you everything you need to know about the 85th edition of the tournament

After last year’s tournament postponed to November due to coronavirus, the US Masters is back in its traditional slot in early April We can expect bright sunshine, flourishing fairways and greens lush during the four-day party between Thursday April 8 and Sunday April 11

Unlike the other three major championships, the US Masters is always held on the same golf course – Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia in the United States of America

The iconic par 72 course was founded in 1932 and the 2021 US Masters runs for 7,475 yards

Jackpot worth $ 11,500,000 is up for grabs at Augusta Whoever wins after four days of fierce competition will bring in $ 2,070,000 Unfortunately, there is no contest yet Par-3 due to coronavirus restrictions

Golf fans in the UK can catch all of the action from all four days at Augusta on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Masters Coverage begins with the first round of groups featured live from 2pm on Thursday April 8 on both channels

If a highlights package is more your thing, you’re in luck because the BBC will be broadcasting a show every night after midnight covering all game days

Irish viewers can follow Eir Sport 1, with live coverage starting at 8 p.m. on Thursday 8 April

If you remember the cursed year that was 2020, you will remember Dustin Johnson winning the iconic green jacket with a record high score of 20 under par If a green jacket wasn’t enough, he also pocketed $ 2,070,000 in cash prizes – not bad for four days of work

South Koreans Im Sung-jae and Cameron Smith of Australia were tied for second – five shots behind – with Justin Thomas three more shots in fourth

At the time of writing, Paddy Power has Dustin Johnson as second favorite at 9/1 behind big shot Bryson DeChambeau (17/2) to defend his title

Justin Thomas and 2015 winner Jordan Spieth are available at 10 as we put Spaniard Jon Rahm at 11/1 to win his first major championship The US Masters is the major that continues to elude Rory McIlroy and he is 16/1 to break his duck

* The odds shown are ante-post prices, which means that if your selection does not play in the Masters for whatever reason, you will lose your stake under traditional anti-post rules

The terms ‘fans’ and ‘spectators’ aren’t exactly favored in Augusta as ticket holders are called ‘customers’ Last year the only people allowed on site were the media, club members and player families One rare piece of good news is that a limited number of customers will be allowed to attend in 2021 so we can expect plenty of “step in the hole!” Cries

Augusta National President Fred Ridley said: “Nothing is, or will be, more important than the well-being of everyone involved.

“While we are disappointed that we cannot accommodate a full complement of customers this year, we will continue our efforts to ensure that everyone who has purchased Augusta National tickets will have access to them in 2022, provided that conditions are improving”
