2020 Masters field: A look at every golfer set to tee it up this year at Augusta National

Defending champion Tiger Woods, a 5-time winner of the green jacket, headlines 15 former winners for the Nov. 12-15 event

The Masters Tournament annually fields the smallest number of competitors for golf’s four major championships. As an invitational that is overseen by host Augusta National Golf Club yet part of the PGA Tour schedule, the Masters sets its criteria for participation.

One time-honored tradition designates past champions as being eligible to return each year and compete. Fifteen Masters winners were scheduled to return to Augusta for this year’s tournament, led by Tiger Woods, the defending champion and a five-time winner of the green jacket. Another tradition, in a nod to the late club founder Bobby Jones, a former Grand Slam champion as an amateur, is to invite some of the top amateur players each year.

The 2020 Masters will feature 92 players: 86 professionals and six amateurs. Spain's Sergio Garcia, who won the 2017 Masters, and Chile's Joaquin Niemann withdrew in recent days, citing positive COVID-19 tests.

The event, originally scheduled for April 9-12 but postponed and ultimately reset for Nov. 12-15, will be played for the 84th time at Augusta National. The competition will be held without spectators.
