The wait for the Masters has never been shorter, but regardless the wait is over. Thanks to last year’s November edition, the 2021 Masters kicks off just five months after the last one. Here’s everything you need to know about the Masters schedule, including online streaming details, TV times and more.

How to watch the 2021 Masters

The name at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking as Masters week begins is the same as it was five months ago, when the postponed-2020 Masters was finally played without spectators on the grounds. It also happens to be the player who won that November week at Augusta National: Dustin Johnson.

Johnson is back this week, as are a limited number of patrons, and he has no intention on surrendering the title of reigning Masters champion anytime soon. But Johnson will face stiff competition. Among the obstacles to overcome are a resurgent Jordan Spieth, fresh off a comeback win at the Texas Open, and a hungry Rory McIlroy, ready to finish off the career grand slam.

The TV coverage for the 2021 Masters will be split between ESPN and CBS, with ESPN airing the first two rounds before CBS takes over for the third and final rounds on the weekend.
