Dustin Johnson will defend his Masters title this week in Augusta with the world’s top players in action, including Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas.The 2021 Masters starts in his normal place on the calendar this year, which means that Johnson’s reign as Masters champion may well be short-lived

The world No.1 has had a tough season so far, but will remain one of the favorites this week due to his historic performance in November

Only three players in history have won two consecutive Masters titles: Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods

“My game is in good shape,” Johnson said this week. “Maybe not as well as in November, but I feel like it’s getting closer

“I’m starting to hit a lot of the same shots and I’m a lot more comfortable with the golf ball I feel like it’s in pretty good shape

“I think it gets there Sometimes playing Hawaii with a lot of wind, LA with a lot of wind, Arabia with a lot of wind, sometimes it relaxes a bit My setup and posture was just a little out of place, which got me to hit some fun shots which is kind of the difference between playing really well or playing just well I think that was the main thing “

But there are a number of players heading to the Masters 2021 in strong form and who will imagine their chances

Thomas won the Players Championship last month with an outstanding final and showed his skills in and around the green

Lee Westwood has also had a good start to 2021, with the Englishman looking to become the oldest Masters winner
