The Masters: Tee times, TV and streaming for the opening round of the first PGA Tour major of 2021
The Masters is back in its usual spot on the calendar for 2021, and Dustin Johnson is chasing history.
The world No. 1 and defending Masters champion is looking to become the fourth golfer to repeat as Masters champion — joining Jack Nicklaus (1965-66), Nick Faldo (1989-90) and Tiger Woods (2001-02).
Johnson's path to winning his second Masters won't be easy, though. He will need to fend off challengers such as Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas — who have each won events in the last month.
One formidable opponent the field won't have to face? Tiger Woods, who is recovering from multiple leg injuries he sustained in a Feb. 23 car crash in Los Angeles.
