Do you feel it? Can you smell it? It arrived in 2021, and four days of untouched golf on the best national course are ahead. It all starts on Thursday, round 1 of action starts early in the morning and starts in the afternoon. With limited sponsors allowed to return to Augusta National, the half-full course will be an interesting sight to which we will surely get used to during the four rounds, but the first opportunity to check it out comes with a lot of anticipation.

There is so much to follow this week that it can sometimes be overwhelming. No worries. We covered you. Only on Thursday can you watch the entire first rounds of title defender Dustin Johnson and the top two golfers who accompanied him to the 2021 Masters Odds, who entered the day, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. All participate in separate prominent groups with a start time schedule.
