The Masters field: Who’s headed to Augusta?

Here’s a full rundown of the players invited to make the trip to Augusta National for this year’s Masters

 

It’s one of professional golf’s greatest feelings – when that precious envelope with the Augusta National logo comes through the door.

It signals an invite to the Masters Tournament and a precious chance to tee it up at the year’s first major among the pine trees and azaleas.

Though the Masters is an invitational event, there are a number of different criteria to qualify – and the early spring often becomes a race as players try to book their spots.

It all comes to an end following the Valero Texas Open when the field is finally confirmed.

Much like the other three major championships, Augusta National hasn’t restricted the playing rights of those who have moved to LIV Golf.

Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, and the defending champion Jon Rahm are among a handful of players set to play in the tournament, and attend the Champions Dinner, as past winners.

Rory McIlroy will return trying once more to complete the Grand Slam, and five-time champion Tiger Woods will also be in the field – five years after he stunned the world by winning his 15th major trophy at Augusta in 2019.

But who has currently got an invite, and is on their way to Georgia in the next week of April? While some of these players are very unlikely to tee it up – such as Sir Nick Faldo and Ian Woosnam – let’s take a look at who is eligible to play right now…
