The 2021 Masters is well underway, with England’s Justin Rose having taken a four-shot lead with a terrific first round display.

Just a few months on from last year’s edition, which had been delayed amid the coronavirus pandemic, the world’s best golfers are back in Georgia to battle it out for the green jacket.

Here’s what you need to know...

When does the 2021 Masters start?

The 85th Masters, the first Major of 2021, gets underway on Thursday, April 8.

It will, as ever, take place at Augusta National. Fans will be able to attend, though numbers will be reduced due to coronavirus restrictions, which around 12,000 expected per day - a quarter of full capacity.
