Since first sliding on the green jacket last April, returning Masters champion Danny Willett has only shown flashes of the form which won him a maiden major.

Willett puts his disappointing performances down to setting his expectations too high following his final-round comeback win at Augusta, but says he has entered the new year with a clean slate.

And the first Englishman to win the Masters in two decades heads back to the scene of his greatest triumph this week aiming to repeat a feat only three men before him have achieved. Indeed, only Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus have won back-to-back green jackets.

Live coverage of Willett's defence will be limited because of Augusta National rules, which restrict broadcasters from showing all the action from the opening days in the hope it will encourage spectators to attend.

Sky Sports' programme will begin at 7pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the live action only shown past 8pm after an hour's build-up. However, the leaders' final round will be shown in its entirity on both Sky Sports and BBC as the tournament reaches a climax.

The action will be shown on both BBC and Sky Sports. Live coverage starts at 7pm on Thursday, April 6.
