The quest for the prized Green Jacket commences April 6 as the lords of the links descend upon Georgia’s Augusta National for the 80th year of the Masters. This is the first of four major professional golf championships of the year, followed by The U.S. Open in June, July’s The Open Championship at The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, and the PGA Championship held at New Jersey’s Baltusrol Golf Club in August. Broadcast to 200 countries worldwide and seen first-hand daily by more than 40,000 spectators, it is the world’s most-watched golf tournament of the year.
Who will win the 2016 Masters is anyone’s guess. Its youngest winner was a 21-year-old Tiger Woods, while its oldest, Jack Nicklaus at 46, also holds the most Masters trophies with six to his name. Last year’s champion 22-year-old Jordan Spieth is a sure bet to be on the leader board. Speith was the second youngest golfer ever to win tying Tiger Woods’ 72-hole record.
