The 2021 Masters at Augusta National is finally here, and everything is setting up for a thrilling 85th edition of the event. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the tournament all week long.

How to watch the Masters

The Masters doesn’t need any extra juice to get fans to watch each April, but this year’s Masters has too many quality storylines to count. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is only five months removed from claiming his first green jacket, and second major title, at last year’s postponed edition. He hasn’t blown away the competition since, but his winning memories are so fresh he has to be considered among the favorites, as he is.

But DJ and crew will face a different course than they did in November. Early reports from the pros claim the fairways and greens are fiery and fast this week, putting a greater emphasis on the putting and approach game. Bryson DeChambeau hopes he can navigate those conditions expertly as he did at the U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

Another former Masters champion to keep an eye on is Jordan Spieth. Spieth bookended his 2015 victory with T2 finishes in 2014 and 2016, and even during his recent struggles he’s put on a good show at Augusta. But now Spieth’s swing issues are largely behind him, as evidenced by his victory last week at the Texas Open.

There will be a limited number of spectators at Augusta National this year to catch the action in person, but even when the course is packed with patrons all week, the vast majority of fans tune in from home. Fortunately, there have never been more ways to watch the Masters from wherever you choose.
