Sunday at the Masters- What dreams are made of! Follow our live blog for updates from Augusta National throughout the day…


It’s the final day of the 2024 Masters! One of the most anticipated Sundays in golf is here. Who will win the Green Jacket? Keep up to date with our live blog of the Masters…

The leaderboard is just so intriguing. Will Scottie do what everyone expected him to do? Could Homa come of age at the majors? Could Morikawa incredibly complete the third leg of the career grand slam? Or is Ludvig Aberg about to win his first major AT his first major?

The Masters Live Blog: Final round


10.27 pm

As Scottie Scheffler arrived on the terrifying 12th tee box with a one-shot lead, Max Homa was in bother on the green and a second Green Jacket for the American was in sight.

Steve Carroll has painted a picture of the world-famous stretch which has stood in the way of many great players…


What is Amen Corner

9.33 pm

Ludvig Aberg is currently one shot behind in the final round of the Masters, with just Scottie Scheffler and Collin Morikawa ahead of him.

If he were to win the Masters in his first-ever appearance at the event, he would join a very, very exclusive club of rookie winners at Augusta. READ MORE HERE

Ludvig Aberg

8.05 pm

It wasn’t the Masters that Tiger Woods wanted. He carded rounds of 73, 72, 82 and 77 which will probably see him finish last.

Steve Carroll has been on the ground at Augusta this week and can’t say enough how great it is to watch the 15-time major champion play in a major. READ HERE

Steve Carroll braved the queues that stretched for a matter of hours, and TOLD US HERE about it all…

Sunday, 2.37 pm

Here we go then – it is the final round of the 2024 Masters

One player in contention is Collin Morikawa who, if he wins, will be a US Open short of completing the major grand slam.

12.25 am


World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler is the man at the top of the leaderboard following the third round at the 2024 Masters Tournament.

Collin Morikawa, Max Homa, Ludvig Aberg and Bryson DeChambeau make up the top five, while only 12 players are in the red numbers with one round to play.

12.10 am

After struggling throughout the back nine, and seemingly like his chances of winning the tournament were all but gone, Bryson DeChambeau ends the third day’s play with a touch of magic!

11.35 pm

What is it about ‘Moving Day’ at Augusta that makes it special?

Use your eyes and ears. Trust your senses. Masters moving day is like stepping back in time.

Our man on the ground – Steve Carroll – took it all in, and wrote about a glorious day in the golfing calendar. Read what he had to say HERE.

10.40 pm

After breaking the cut record on Friday, Tiger Woods has broken another couple of records on Saturday.

However, this one was for all the wrong reasons. The five-time major champion went out in 42, his worst front nine in Masters history.

He came home in 40 to finish the third day with a round of 82 – his worst 18-hole score in a major championship…

10.15 pm

Remember THAT jumper that Jason Day was wearing on Friday? Wondering why we only saw it for the first few holes of his day?

It turns out that the Australian was told to remove it by Augusta National themselves.

“Respectfully, you do that because it’s all about the tournament here, and I understand that. I respect the tournament. That’s what we’re here to do is try and play and win the green jacket,” Day said following his third round on Saturday.

Read more about the situation HERE.

9.50 pm

Every winner of the Masters takes home the trophy and gets to wear the famous Green Jacket.

However, there is also a huge chunk of prize money on offer for the winner come Sunday evening…

Take a look at what each player will take home in their pockets this week HERE.

9.00 pm

Maybe this is a sign that if you are playing in a major tournament, you shouldn’t be doing any manual labour in the morning…

Adam Hadwin was under the sink of his rental house this morning, and then went on to fire a round in the 80s in the afternoon.

7.55 pm

The final group has teed off, but immediately, they’re behind!

He won the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he won the Players Championship, and he’s now in the solo lead at the Masters Tournament, an event he won in 2022.

World No 1 Scottie Scheffler is showing the world exactly why he is the best in the business early on on day three.

Our very own Hannah Holden summed it up with her post on X!

6.35 pm

Three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson is known for his prowess with the wedges around the green.

That wasn’t quite how it went down on the 3rd this afternoon. He needed five shots from just 40 feet.

5.50 pm

We’ve just gone past the halfway point of the groups going out for the third day at Augusta National.

We will have to wait until 7.45 pm BST for the final group – which features Max Homa and Bryson DeChambeau.

For the full list of tee times for day three, take a look at our piece HERE.

4.50 pm

The first group of day three is into the infamous ‘Amen Corner’.

Holes 11, 12 and 13 are arguably the most famous trio of holes in the world of golf. The Masters can easily be won or lost through this dreaded section of the course.

Our man on the ground – Steve Carroll – went to find out why these holes are so special. Read his thoughts HERE.

3.30 pm

There were some big names who failed to make the cut at the Masters this week.

Justin Thomas had the biggest meltdown on the back nine, finishing 7-over in his last four holes to the miss the cut by one.

He was just one of several, and you can check out who didn’t make it into the weekend HERE.

1.25 pm

We’re just over an hour away from the third day getting underway!

10.21 pm

“I’m here,” Woods said. “I have a chance to win the golf tournament. I don’t know if they’re all going to finish today, but I’m done. I got my two rounds in. Just need some food and some caffeine, and I’ll be good to go.”

The projected cut at the Masters is currently three-over-par and after nine holes in round two, Tiger Woods is one-over-par.

If he makes the cut, he will hold the record for the most cuts made at the tournament with 24. READ MORE incredible Tiger stats here!

With the second round now in full flow, NCG’s Steve Carroll almost single-handedly ruined Tiger Woods’ pursuit of a record-breaking run of made cuts at the Masters on Friday, as he tells us on X…

4.04 pm

Scottie Scheffler could face a difficult decision this week. Golf fans have joked that the World No.1 could be required to leave the course if his wife Meredith gives birth to their child.

“If she calls me while I’m on the 17th, then I better go home,” Scheffler told ESPN.

Jason Day may not be at the top of the leaderboard, but he has caught the eye with his new Malbon clothing line, and you can see why…

1.05 pm

Good afternoon! Or morning if you are lucky enough to be at Augusta National to watch the Masters!

The players who didn’t finish their first rounds are back out on the course on Friday as they start a long, gruelling day where they must complete 36 holes by the time the sun has gone down…

Here is HOW TO WATCH the action on day two…

masters live blog

1:15 am


At the end of the opening day, it is 2020 US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau who leads the way following a 7-under-par round of 65.

World No 1 Scottie Scheffler, Denmark’s Nicolai Hojgaard, England’s Danny Willett and American Max Homa make up the rest of the top five, with Hojgaard and Homa having to come back on Friday morning to finish their first rounds.

Take a look at the top ten and ties here…

At 7:51pm ET, play was suspended for the day at Augusta National. Players were able to complete the hole they were on, and with just 12 hours before play would get underway once more…


Following his opening round at Augusta, Wyndham Clark fired a not-so-subtle dig at LIV Golf…

11.10 pm

We know that Bryson is somewhat different compared to most when it comes to his technique, equipment and game management.

A six-degree driver is at the top of the bag, and it’s the first time that Augusta National has ever seen a Krank driver…

Add in the jumbo grips and the fact that every iron in his bag is the same size, and you can understand why he is nicknamed ‘The Scientist’!

masters live blog

9.55 pm

Imagine being out for six months after shoulder surgery and then coming back to the Masters and firing an opening round 68.

Can’t imagine it? It’s not possible? That’s what we would have said as well!

However, for 2016 champion Danny Willett, it was very much possible. The Englishman, playing in his first competitive round in more than 200 days, shot a 4-under-par 68 to sit in a tie for 2nd.

masters live blog

9:00 pm

Over the years, there has been some terrible outfits at the Masters. The opening day of the 2024 edition saw some additions to the list, but whose was worse?

Jason Day‘s parachute pants, or Sergio Garcia‘s entire ensemble?

Our man on the ground – Steve Carroll – spent some time walking around the grounds on the opening day.

From the conditions, to the course itself, take a look at his thoughts here.

7.05 pm

It’s just gone lunchtime at Augusta National, and the patrons will be thinking about grabbing some food before the afternoon wave.

At most golf events, you’re looking at $10 or $12 for a bite and about the same for a beer.

That isn’t the case at Augusta! Check out our full piece on the incredible food and drink prices HERE.

Masters live blog

5.55 pm

The Masters three honorary starters – Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Tom Watson – were united in their desire to see golf’s civil war come to an end.

“We all know golf is fractured with the LIV Tour and the PGA Tour doing the different things they are doing,” Watson said, before revealing a passionate, and impromptu, speech he’d given at Tuesday’s Champions Dinner.

Check out what Watson had to say to the group at the Champions Dinner HERE.

You don’t just get a place in history and a sense of pride for winning the Masters. There are several perks for donning the Green Jacket including a trip to Hawaii and a future on the PGA Tour… READ HERE

Have you ever wondered why caddies at the Masters have to wear boiler suits? Well, we explain why RIGHT HERE

1.30 pm

Let’s get you in the mood for the 2024 Masters…

NCG’s Steve Carroll is on the ground at the Masters, so allow him to get you in the mood for the Masters with some colour about what Augusta National means to him…

12.38 pm

Unfortunately, the weather forecast at Augusta National wasn’t the most promising for day one and on Wednesday night, the night before the action was set to get underway, we had this update from the club:

“Due to forecasted weather on Thursday, we have decided to delay all gate openings in the morning. All Masters free parking will be closed until further notice while gate openings are delayed. Further updates will be shared no later than 5 am via Masters.com and social channels.”

Then, on Thursday morning before the golfers arrived at the golf course:

“We continue to monitor the weather closely. Gate openings and tee times have been delayed until further notice. The first round will not begin before 9 am.”

So we have somewhat of a false start to the action down Magnolia Lane. But since it is underway, we will provide you with updates on the action and the best things we saw from Thursday in Georgia.

Just after 12.30 pm on Thursday, the Masters issued an update to say that the tee times for round one would be pushed back to 10.30 am local time, which is 3.30 pm UK time. The full list of tee times for both rounds one and two is below:

ALSO: Round one tee times for the 2024 Masters

ALSO: Round two tee times for the 2024 Masters
