The 84th Masters tees off on Thursday against an autumn backdrop at Augusta National.

For the first time since the golf major began in 1934, the PGA Tour postponed the annual April tournament to November because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The only other instance in which the Masters was not played in April was from 1943-1945, when the event was cancelled because of World War II. During that span, Augusta was transformed into a farm for cattle and turkeys in order to assist in the war effort.

Now in 2020, a tradition unlike any other will look a bit different. One of the most anticipated sporting events of the year will be held without spectators, but that hardly diminishes the emotion and intensity surrounding this latest edition.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson and FedEx Cup leader Bryson DeChambeau have played some of the best golf leading up to the tournament and will both eye their second major title this weekend. Brooks Koepka, who was plagued by hip and knee issues last season, will seek his fifth major win since he claimed his first in 2017.     

The quest for a green jacket will not come easy in a loaded 92-player field featuring several past Masters winners, including Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, and defending champ Tiger Woods.

At the age of 43, Woods became the second oldest golfer to win the Masters with his unexpected triumph in 2019. Should he repeat in 2020, he will tie the record for most Masters victories with a player who won his final Masters at the age of 46.
