The Masters live stream: how to watch the 2021 golf at Augusta, tee times

The 85th edition of The Masters tees off live from Augusta National on Thursday 8th April 2021 and has all the makings of an historic major. Dustin Johnson is aiming to become only the fourth golfer to win back-to-back green jackets but Jordan Spieth and Jon Rahm are just two of the top players who will also be vying for victory come Sunday. Use this handy guide to The Masters live stream and follow the action from anywhere in the world.

The stage is set for The Masters 2021 and it should be a fascinating spectacle. England’s Lee Westwood will play with defending champion and world number one Dustin Johnson in the first two rounds while Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy will tee off alongside former world number one Jon Rahm of Spain, and American Xander Schauffele. Bryson DeChambeau gets his round underway at 6.36pm, just prior to Justin Thomas at 6.48pm and and Jordan Spieth at 7pm.

There are just three amateurs playing this year. England’s Joe Long, the 23-year-old winner of the 2020 Amateur Championship is in fine form and could be competitive on his first major appearance. Charles ‘Ollie’ Osborne, the 21-year-old runner up at the 2020 US Amateur Championship, will also be making his major debut alongside his dad (and caddy) Stephen Osborne. Last but not least, 22-year-old Tyler Strafaci will have the honour of partnering defending Masters Champion Dustin Johnson in round one.

Of course, plenty of players will be doing their utmost to deny Johnson a second green jacket. With Thomas and Spieth coming off recent big wins, new dad Rahm looking to celebrate the birth of his son in style, and McIlroy going for the Grand Slam, The Masters 2021 is destined to be a classic.

The Masters 2021 runs from 8th – 11th April at the Augusta National Golf Club in the great state of Georgia. Follow our guide to watch The Masters live stream 2021 from anywhere in the world.
