The Masters Golf Tournament has been synonymous with greatness and excellence since its inception in 1934. From Lord Byron and Sarazen to Snead and Hogan to Palmer and Nicklaus, to present day heroes like Woods and Mickelson, the Masters has long stood as the most coveted Championship in golf.

87 players | Top 50 and ties, plus any player within 10 strokes of leader, make cut, First tee time: 8 a.m. ET on Thursday, April 5
Eighty-plus players are invited to tee off at Augusta, and you know who’s going to be there. Tiger, Phil, DJ, Bubba, Sergio, Spieth and the complete list of the world’s Top 50 players. Plus, a slew of amateurs, all the PGA winners from the last calendar year, Indian wunderkind Shubhankar Sharma, and a ton of the world’s best players from, like, 30 years ago.
Since former champions have a lifetime invitation to The Masters, you’ll get your yearly face time with Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer, Trevor Immelman, Mike Weir, Angel Cabrera, Vijay Singh, Sandy Lyle, Larry Mize and Jose Maria Olazabal. It’s sad, but 2016 Masters champ Danny Willett is closer to the old guys than the crew with a legitimate shot at winning the Green Jacket this year.
Oh, Brooks Koepka has an invite, too, but a wrist injury will keep him off the links. Meaning Brooks wasn’t here. More injuries!!! Martin Kaymer played in Houston for the first time in a month after withdrawing with a wrist injury at the Honda Classic, and Kevin Chappell wrenched his back at the WGC Match Play, forcing him to pull out of his Friday clash with Ian Poulter. They’re both expected to be on the course Thursday morning, however.
Since The Masters is such a special event, it must have its own special cut line rules. The top 50 players and ties after the second round will qualify for the weekend, as will any player who’s within 10 strokes of the leader after 36 holes. That means it’s possible that far more than 50 players actually will make the cut. And there’s no MDF, so no worries about a cut after the third round.
So, in the DraftKings Fantasy Golf Millionaire, simply having all six of your golfers make the cut won’t guarantee at minimum cash like it does most weeks. Instead, a 6-for-6 lineup will be the minimum requirement to turn a profit — especially with the number of geezers and non-professionals weighing down the back end of the field.
Woods, Fred Couples uncovered that the 14-time significant victor will tee it up on Tuesday with Mickelson, who is gunning for his fourth green coat. Couples will join the Hall of Famers, alongside Thomas Pieters.”Me and Thomas may simply kick back and watch,” Couples said.In spite of the fact that a period was not revealed, if Monday’s dynamic scene was any sign, the supporters will anticipate, and welcome, matching’s entry with gusto.No, it wasn’t the thunder that broadly overwhelms the property on Sundays, yet Woods incited a roar on Monday evening, because of some enchantment at the second gap. Tiger took off his second shot over the green at the standard 5, leaving a dubious pitch.
Finally, 15 players will make their first starts at Augusta National in 2018. There are five amateurs (Joaquin Niemann, Doc Redman, Lin Yu-Xin, Harry Ellis, Doug Ghim) and two Japanese Tour players (Satoshi Kodaira and Yusaku Miyazato), along with Xander Schauffele, Tony Finau, Sharma, Dylan Frittelli, Patton Kizzire, Hao Tong Li, Austin Cook, and Wes Bryan.
